Is there some sort of agreement in place with adserver.de?

I'm getting these type of ads in the top bar...

Did you visit the german speaking forum, even by accident? I'd bet that if you have, you probably quality to get german ads.

Nope, as a matter of fact, I have them collapsed. I don't seem to be getting them since the forum change, though.

Congratulations! We have selected you for a few moments as the possible winner of an Audi A3!
If you have been selected, check over here: www.selected-winner.nl

You're still selected for 16 seconds
The timer counts down.

Following the link (I was bored) leads to an ad site which offers the car again and which asks for your first and last name and email, with the express concession that your personal info will be used for commercial purposes. After that they'll promise you "a gift" so in order to be able to deliver it they'll ask your address, date of birth and value of your mortgage.
Then i was fed up with making up false info so i didn't check it out any further.

Would people actually fall for this shit? Crazy

Would people
