Mark here, one of the techs at VS. We use a product called "SolveMedia", which is a captcha to test if you are a human when performing certain actions. Those include searches, and registration. That product uses both standard images to test, and it occasionally uses an ad to test. To confirm, though, members never see those. If you are a member of the site, the ad layout is always minimalistic as we don't need to test if you're a human (unless you're a zombie, at which point we'd probably want to test you repeatedly :P). My walking dead joke of the week.
