I'm not trying to be a jerk to the OP, but did you try contacting the admins via private message first for a reply ? If not, i would have tried a private route first vs venting in public. Again, I am not trying to sound rude..just a suggestion.

It is a googleads.g.doubleclick.net add that he was looking at. You see the advertisement if you are not a registered user. It is on the front page. If you hit refresh from the front page you will see a different advertisement. I think google picks the ads not RR.

I use Adblock Plus, am not a paid subscriber, and do not see any ads on this site.

I rather enjoyed listening in on 46 Mhz cordless phone calls when I was a grad school student 20 years ago. Many students in the dorms had their own telephones and many of them were cordless. It was always fun listening in on boyfriends / girlfriends talking with each other. Well those days are long gone now, probably a good thing.

I'm a premium member and I see the ad clear as day. Here is the deal.... I am assuming RR uses an ad aggregation service to serve up the ads. It is true that this company running these false ads is located outside the united states. It is also true that they have no such product that can do what they claim. People go to the site, get excited about what they are offering and then purchase this product that doesn't exist. No refunds, no one to call, etc. Total scam.

I don't think anyone has hit on the most important part (IMO):

These days, ad delivery servers send you ads based on your own browsing habits.

So Fast1eddie, if there's anyone who is to blame for what ads you're seeing, it's you...
