Advertising Spam

Post by xfile1971 »

An ad took me away from the game I was playing to try and direct me to a Russian site claiming there was an "URGENT Firefox update that needed to be installed".  We are not allowed to use ad blocking software on the site so it would sure be nice if you vetted your advertisers!

Thanks, we'll get that ad removed from the rotation when we track it down. We have a provider that scans for these and other types of malicious ads, but occasionally one slips through the cracks and must be dealt with.

Are we saying: "dealt with, with extreme prejudice?"
