He probably got these 50 euros, you get when you sign up at certain hosting providers.

I get this ad like 1000 times a day in Gmail – It is so annoying!

Did you click it to find out the landing page URL?

Yes, as linked in the post Beussery...

I don't think it complies with AdWords guidelines

   * Your ad text must be in logical sentence or phrase form. This includes using grammatically correct spacing between words and around punctuation.
   * Ads must contain correct spelling. The only exceptions are commonly misspelled words or spelling variations that the majority of users would recognize and understand.
   * Don't use repeated, unnecessary, or gimmicky punctuation or symbols.

Maybe the person is getting more revenue on ads on the landing page than he/she has to pay Google for the click?

Maybe its an old KGB ad left from the days they used landing pages links to send secret messages – really – it's true.

You'd think Google would have a filter in place for repetitive characters...

So, how did Google approve this?
As Paul above me said, don't you think there should be a filter or something?

Sometimes cheaper than postage...

Google doesn't approve the ads. It's not efficient.

Maybe my eyes are being tricked here but it looks to me that "W" begins each line but that it is the "m" that is repeated many, many times.

Tell me I'm not losing it...

Yes you're right.
