site hijack [ I hope ! ]

A dating site appears to have hijacked the banner and side adverts.

I hope Sailnet has not sold space to the sleaze bags.

Isn't the "Crew Wanted" subforum a dating site?

I think the banner and side ads are auto linked to cookies on your computer from sites you have visited recently...

All I see are lawn mower repair sites and collage recuitment centers...

Yeah, um the "sales" ads are filled in by you browser's cookies. Clear your cache and history to get rid of these pests. So how's the dating scene?
