Does anyone here have the code to reject users that are using GWA from accessing my site?

Cheers :)

Technically google web accelerator users aren't visiting your site, They are visiting google servers and getting a copy of the page from there. So i doubt there is a way to stop them.

I don't know why you would want to though.

So GWA goes along and scrapes all my pages for caching then?

Yeah, but google do that anyway without the web accelerator.
I believe they have already gone to court for it and a judge ruled it to be "fair use".

If Google and GWA scrape pages do they scrape the adwords and ppc add's on our sites? If they do then they would be creating hits on those add's.

As far as a bot is concerned there are no adverts, Only JS files, and they need to be viewed in a browser before anything becomes clickable.
