the last couple of days I've noticed a banner add for replica/fake watches for a company out of China appear at the top of the opening freeks page. I know the site probably can't control the adds that appear, but it would seem to fly in the face of the freeks rules:

We do not endorse replica watchesin any way. Discussions aboutreplica watches are not allowed on Watch Freeks. In addition nolinks or pictures pertaining to replica watches areallowedon Watch Freeks in threads or posts.

Just an observation, not trying to be difficult. Not sure if you are seeing the same Adds as me.

It has also been on the first page of new post at the bottom. It has been coming and going for the last 4 months.

guys, I am out but quickly replying to this thread on my phone. the ads at the top and bottom of the page are Google ads. they show up based on the content on a website page. I do not control what is shown there. BUT I can block certain advertisers. I block the replica sites every week and they just sneak back in with different domain names. and then I block again, and again, and again. I will block the new ones again later tonight. it is a constant battle!

Just got home. I am going to block them all again tonight. I am sure in a few days they will be back with new domain names.
