What's the story with all of the penny auction advertisements on the site? As this article in Wired shows (part1, part2), even legitimate penny auction sites are nothing more than a form of gambling. They are certainly not a viable alternative for retail purchase of products. The unscrupulous penny auction sites use either humans or bots to pump up the price and the number of bits on an auction. Since legitimate customers are charged by the bid on penny auctions, these scams artificially raise the price of the items. Some sites do not send the product as it's portrayed in the "auction" or will fail to send any product at all to winning bidder. There is no formal regulation of this industry. Is there any way to pull those ads, or are they essential to the viability of the website?
