    Strange ads

    I've recently been seeing ads for "healthier living" and things like joint relief which look a little weird next to a Radeon ad or an Enermax ad. ;) I don't know if they're meant to be there or not but figured I'd throw up the URL of the ad just in case it needs to be filtered. The ad...
