I don't know what kind of classified ads are allowed, but is this appropriate?

Oh god, it's Herbalife again.

This is the business that encourages its flunkies to nail 36"x24" plastic signs on telephone poles that read "Work at home" or "Lose 30 pounds in 30 days" and "Got a computer? Put it to work."

It's a major scam that involves buying overpriced diet pills and reselling them or enticing other flunkies to resell them.

It's estimated that they nail up several million signs per year. I know I've removed literally tens of thousands of them in my area over the last three years.

Now they're infecting dropzone.com too. What a pile of crap!

Yeah, I know what it is, mostly I was annoyed by the cross-posting under categories that the stuff doesn't belong to. Not that it belongs under any category on a skydiving site....

Incidentally, Herbalife doesn't seem to condone the plastic signs anymore:

Ok, so this is really off topic, but if you're interested in the Herbalife sign battle, there's a lot of history at:

Well, several weeks later they're still there. It's probably a matter of a lack of free time.

Perhaps dropzone.com needs a classifieds moderator who is responsible for keeping them clean of opportunistic parasites.
