    OMG!! this might get me banned, but after watching the banner for a looong time, and being bored to my ass, I clicked it to see what kind of bs was the "ninja black belt HOME curse"... to my surprise, it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond what I expected.... Sherdog shouldnt allow this fuckers to place their banners here...

    BLACK BELT HOME STUDY COURSE

    This is BY far, the most ridiculous thing I've seen in a loooooong time (MArts related) and whats worst, is that theres probably ppl trying to become Online Ninjas, because the banner has been there for a long time, and I dont think it is free...

    Why should he be sued? What law(s) is he breaking by doing this?

    First, I don't think he should be sued, but I did get a kick out of his flier. I especially liked his crime statistics which are SWAG:

    [​IMG]

    I thought "holy sh*t, Batman, there are 20,000 rapes in broad day light every day? I'm going to tell my 75 year old mom and 40 year old sister to move to Canada." A quick search on FBI.gov, however, indicated that there were 94,635 rape cases reported in 2004. So that's about 259 reported cases of rape daily. Still an alarming rate, but certainly not the 20,000 the flier claims.

    What happens if they don't have tattoo's? Does that make a difference? Or what if they had no riddum? How about if they are holding fruit?

    Video training is nothing new, it exists for every style and with every level of quality. Nothing illegal about it. Just market demand, There are people that want to become Ninja Black Belts, as a result there are people willing to sell them the means to do so.

    It's not for me, and neither where Chia pets, so I won't buy either, but if other people want to they are more then welcome too. I suspect there are lots of people that would consider some of the things I buy useless wastes of money as well.



    Google ads are content based. He picks his keywords and the regions he wants to advertise too, the ads show up on sites that use those keywords.

    Sherdog doesn't control which ads actually show up, there are going to be a ton and they are going to vary depending on where you live. Nor is he likely placing them here intentionally.

    You can black list sites when working with google ads, but it is a pain and not really worth the hassle. Generally you just do that to block direct competitors from advertising on your site.
