What policy do you have with misleading ad banners?

    Hello,

    just today I saw the following advertisement when posting a reply here:
    [​IMG]

    It links to this Wondershare site, which is quite a notorious site to SPAM for, but they misleadingly advertise for HandBrake, though they do not offer HandBrake of course, only their own applications, for which you have to pay for.

    Are such ads okay here?

    I was also wondering this too. People with little knowledge of these "fake" ads could get scammed :/

    Personally I mostly use tapatalk on my ipad for macrumors.

    That I know, thus my thread, asking about it.

    I should have referred to this in my OP then:
    I am not annoyed by the ad, even MacKeeper ads are visible here. But since it is a misleading app, and promising an app Wondershare does not even offer, I though there might be a policy for that, thus this thread.
