Help me understand WHY VP.Com would allow advertisers to attempt to load Insecure script?
It stalls and crashes my Browser.

Malicious ads are an internet-wide problem, not specific to this site. We use reputable ad networks to provide our ad services, however none are perfect. Hopefully additional steps will be taken to block such ads from their inventory. The best we can do at this time is attempt to block or report specific ads when they can be located.

The probable real reason is to bait players into buying the Gold Membership.
Quite honestly, it is not worth it for me to me to spend $79.00/year to play on a site that I have been playing for 6 years and well over 1 Million Hands (almost all contests) - never to win any money at all (even though I realize that this is a "non-wagering site"). Even at Casinos I manage to win some to give the impression that it is at least worth some investment.
This will probably be my last month.
No retort in necessary.

Blocked it. I only saw one ad on that domain... I assume it was at the top of the screen and not on the sides?

Brooks shoes still pops up also.

Unfortunately, if someone else stats a new campaign that leads to the same url, it will reappear. Both should hopefully be blocked again now. Let me know if things are better.
