I find it irritating that more and more suggestions of deleting MacKeeper appear, as it is, by majority public opinion, deemed detrimental to our hardware. Yet WE actually advertise it and as such, it would seem, on the face of it anyway, that we support it. It is not until you get into the body of the forum and spend time here that you realize that in point of fact, it is deplored.

It is this way, we are told, because we have no control upon what is advertised on OUR forum and what is not. This doesnít seem right to me.

see thread link below
another lesson learned !!

This person actually downloaded and installed MacKeeper because it was advertised on Mac Forums and therefore they deemed appropriate to install.

Suppose that these uncontrollable advertises start to post porn adverts or other equally inappropriate media, what would happen then? Would we start to say no? Surely, regardless of who pays for the forum, the mods/admins have a right to be consulted or at the very least a sticky at the front before we join to say that we do not support any product as advertised on this forum, whatsoever, or better still can we ban advertisements all together?

Is there nothing we could do?

Thatís my rant over. Back to the day job.
