    I just saw a "short clip" type condom Ad on the Macrumors frontpage that's not 100% safe for work, specially in an open office environment...

    I didn't watch the whole clip as I had to close the tab very quickly.

    If you can get a screen shot of it and the linked URL, the site admins can look into having it removed.

    Also from the forum FAQ:

    I'm sure it's just a coincidence of timing, but I couldn't help noticing which Mod got to the post referencing condoms first.

    Pure luck, I'm sure...:D :p

    :rolleyes:

    I "F5" the page whole day and no luck yet... I should have done a screencap very quickly. Sorry guys.

    Maybe I will try at home.

    The interesting thing is that the ad companies usually serve ads based on what they think the user will be interested in...

    Yea... this is what I have been thinking the whole day.

    I always browse in Firefox Private Browsing mode so there should not be any information of me and my browsing habits. Usually I only visit tech sites, gizmodo, engadget, here, and slashdot... (Facebook is blocked at work).

    The Ads at the macrumors frontpage I see very often are i'm watch, ASUS, Symantec... then... only once for BMW.

    I find it humorous when people post the odd auto-completion of google searches... google tailors your searches to past searches... so.... yeah...

    Did you happen to get the URL as well? They'll need that too.

    I did not click on that at that point (who knows where it will lead me to)... it's a flash video I cannot get a URL either. :eek:
