    Man Rocketpig...first your site spreads malware like a cough in a doctor's office and now I'm getting spammed about my phone contracts?

    The next thing I expect to see is a message from Riverbrian stating he's the King of the Congo and needs me to send him $2,000.

    Well, he IS King of the Congo, but I'm handling his finances so kindly send that money to me.

    It's not this site, it's the ad networks.

    Actually I've been abducted in the Congo. They got my wallet and passport and I need $5,000 to get home.

    Send all aid to ChiTown... She is handling the negotiations with the Bambuti.

    Thankfully it's not the KGB. They would want a whole lot more for you than $5000. They probably wouldn't let you try and raise money via TD, either.

    I'm actually more worried that after a few days they will be demanding money from us or they'll send you back here.

    Yeah I do have the ability to make money by being annoying. "Here's ten bucks if you go stand over there".

    On a side note... In the news right now... Grand Rapids Michigan for the past 38 years had a city law making it illegal to be annoying. Under advice from the city attorney they recently reversed it and you can now legally be annoying in Grand Rapids.

    I have this information for you, but I'll need the same from you first, as a show of good faith you understand.

    It's a giant PITA, to be honest.

    Me: Your ads have malware!

    Network: Which ads?

    Me: I have no &^%$ing idea. Can't get them to appear on my machine.

    Network: ...

    Me: I know, I know.

    Wish I could help more. There is no ability to right click and the ads aren't always the same ones that do it.

    It's an insanely difficult problem to troubleshoot. We don't have direct access to what is being served via the network and everybody gets different ads, which means that I can't see what you're getting and vice versa.

    Much of the time, all we can do is hope that another site is delivered those ads and that person complains, getting the ads removed from the entire network.
