  1. Amazed. Doing simple help in digital darkroom and answer some basic
    questions. The thread has photoshop links to pirates with CS2 for 25
    USD. What the hay... is happening. This is wrong. What's going on.
  2. Which thread?
  3. Which thread are your referring to? Was it an ad, or something someone posted?
  4. Oh my god! A link to pirates!

    Make them walk the plank, me hearties!
  5. I think John is referring the active link that even appears on his posting!
  6. It's visible when your not logged in or not a member ...
  7. I've sent an email to the advertising network asking them to block that ad.
  8. Sorry for the delay in answering.

    It was a keyword "Photoshop" link in the following thread on the Digital Darkroom forum. I probably was not logged in.

    The keyword is not their today.
  9. I received notification that the offending ad has been blocked by Vibrant Media, the ad network involved. Thank you for reporting the problem.

    It is absolutely not our intention to support piracy of Adobe products in any way. Indeed, we are proud to have Adobe as one of our advertisers. Unfortunately, many (if not most) of our ads come from advertising networks which we have joined, and all of the ad networks make it relatively easy for advertisers to buy advertising on their networks. Occasionally bad or questionable advertisers slip through, such as in this case. Also, we have instructed the ad networks that we do not want ads from various categories of advertisers, such as gambling sites, or dating sites, but sometimes they are miscategorized.

    Since we don't personally see every ad that appears on the site, it is very helpful when people report questionable ads to us. When making these reports, it helps us to take action if you identify the offending ad clearly, so we can figure out which network it came from, and who the advertiser is. It is especially helpful if you can report the URL where you end up if you click on the ad, If you are wary of clicking on the ad, which is understandable, please still try to give us as much information as possible.
