    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.

    So, I did the right thing.

    I know the site has to make money, but this is just odd.
