When you're looking at the index page on the forum, it doesn't show up as the latest post on any of the forums. But when you look at the list of threads in the individual forums, it shows up at the top of the page.

It's almost like a 'sticky' because it stays at the top. But it does show up beneath the stickies in every forum.

The title of their threads is written in bold letters too.

It even tricks you into thinking that you posted in the thread so you click on it. Not cool.

They are on the top of every section I have been in today.
When you click on them, it takes you to a video.

I have seen it and have reported it to the admin, there is no box to check so there is no way we mods can delete it.

For those that don't see it:



It even shows the black dot beside the post so you think that you posted in the thread. That will make you think you should check it but the only thing you find is a lame ad.

It is too bad they have to resort to this type of revenue making.

If it isn't about male enhancement then it don't belong on the internet.

I saw one for Ford Trucks. They must be paying customers rather than your typical spam. It takes money to run a site like this. I guess that's what's going on. At least you know what it is going in and can opt not to click on it.
