Reporting it so you can remove it. I don't really believe you endorse such ads.

Thanks for reporting. Just don't reply to it nor make any new topics regarding it, especially with the link still in it. That way, you're doing exactly what the spammers want you to do.

Thanks.

Sorry Luna.

It wasn't one of the random spam threads. It was one of the banner ads.

Oh! My mistake, but errr.... those ads are based on your search results and browsing history.

Sorry dude :roll:

Yeah when on a reporting spree and clicking on one of the spam messages with adult themes in them next to your father is very nerve racking trying to get to the report button

Erm, I've seen it on my home computer, laptop, cell phone and my mom's playbook. Now they can't all have been on adult realted sites. Can they?

EDIT:Just saw it again as I was reporting this message. There's nothing in my history or cookies that is adult-related.

Yeah, we're trying to delete them ASAP. If you see something sketchy, the last thing you want to do is click on it. Just say it's a spam topic and it's being dealt with if they every ask you about it.

Sorry, I was just joking. Glad the admin saw this so maybe he has some influence on what to show on the forum. Good thing you made a topic about it.
