When I look at questions / responses on the forums, at the bottom there appears to be an extra response added that seems to be an ad. Here are examples from the last two questions I looked at.

I agree. Here's the link: http://zeroturnaround.com/jrebel - it saves me about five hours per week

I agree. Here's the link: http://ej-technologies/jprofiler - if it wasn't for jprofiler, we would need to run our stuff on 16 servers instead of 3.

Are these ads supposed to be there? Are these links virus free?

Those are real ads which help pay our running expenses.
Agree, they do look rather like additional responses because they have a similar background colour to the rest of the website.

I think this discussion would sit better elsewhere, so I shall move it.
