I'm a rolling stone.
Many times there are newbies on this site with spam/advertisement, sometimes it's the housewives making > $5000 a month.
This is removed fast, I myself am annoyed by them and report as soon as I see them.
I like the way this works and overall action is fast on removal of spam/advertisement.

What is much more disturbing is that there is advertisement/spam on MacRumors Main page.
Isn't this a bit hypocritical?
Or is this provided by a third party provider?

Here's a screenshot I took.

Did you manage to get the address of the website it was linking too? It makes it easier for the offending ads to banished.

From the Forum FAQ:
What do I do about annoying ads?

MacRumors uses an advertising service that supplies ads from a pool. We do not select the specific ads shown or the specific advertisers who participate.

If you find a particular ad especially annoying (e.g., an ad that is oversized, obscures the page, moves around, or has sound), let us know by posting a screenshot in our Site and Forum Feedback forum and telling us the URL it links to. Using this information we can ask to have it removed from the ad pool.

If you find all ads annoying, remember that ads support the site and allow us to provide free news, rumors, and discussion, and that ads are suppressed for paid members. See How do I contribute to MacRumors.com? above.

Register on MacRumors! This sidebar will go away, and you'll see fewer ads.
