    Yeh I have escalated the issue further, it appears its the US side of the ad provider causing the issue so I mailed the head of operations there. If its no better tomorrow I will disable that provider for now.

    Merged into the correct place, not seen that one but please grab where it points to so I can see why it appeared.

    @ZeroHour:

    I just saw this image appear in this thread with your signature:


    Some Edugeek members might consider this NSFW. Graphics included in signatures like these might need to be looked at again?

    Not a criticism I just offer it for consideration.

    An advert for MacKeeper .. on EduGeek?

    I was under the impression that MacKeeper was not a thing you would want to install on your Mac (in a similar way you want to remove all traces of Norton when you get a new computer because of the resources it hogs) so you can understand my surprise when I see an advert for it on here! :/

    So, what is the deal with MacKeeper .. is it something to avoid on the same scale as the plague as I have thought for some time?

    Merged this post into the report bad ad's thread.

    I have not seen the advert myself (probably because I am on PC) but its probably seeded through adsense. If you see it again please try and capture the images url and the url it points to and I will get it blocked.

    You definitely do not want to install MacKeeper. ZeoBit (the company who make this app) use some very underhanded tactics...

    Added to the filter so it should block it soon, they keep changing the domains to get around blocks.
