Four keyphrases, four ads clicked within 34 seconds

Now here is a classic click fraud symptom. This user at used a proxy server at a Level3 site in San Francisco to find four of our ads and click them within seconds.

Update: The "cuplrit" was Google. Apparently the Adwords people use this IP address when checking your ads. :) The official answer from Google about these clicks was some boilerplate answer which said how wonderful their system is, but nothing specific.
