Default Adf.ly needs to go. Admins, will you look into this?

In the Members video forum, when you click on a video, there will be an advertisement for Adf.ly. you have to wait for 10 sec or so and click on a button to skip the ad. nearly everytime i click on the button my computer locks up. Im not sure if this a hijack on the site or someting RcUniverse is getting paid for, but this is getting to be a major problem for me and im sure for others. will you look into this please.
Thanks,
James Smith

+1 on that.
I was confused the other day when I tried to watch a few videos. I ended up leaving the video section because of those ads.

Last I heard, the RCU video site had been abandoned due to lack of participation.

Search for RCUniverse on You Tube and you'll find the lastest review videos even before the reviews are posted

Minn, Its the "Members Airplane Video" forum. Not the review forum. Where members can post links to their airplane videos.
http://www.rcuniverse.com/mvp/mvpPosts.cfm?videocat=1
Its seems it not every link I click on but it sure does seem that alot of links get redirected to the "Adf.ly" site. try it yourself on several links and see if it happens to you. then you will see what Im talking about. Hoefully it wont lock up your browzer.

I know, but I was under the impression that it was inactive - as in, even members can no longer post videos

Ok, I see what is going on here. Unfortunately I don't have powers to edit the members links. But these video links are DEFINITELY not right. They are spamming to advertise this adf.ly website. I'll pass this on to John Neff who handles all the member's galleries like this and he can definitely take care of the issue.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
