I tried to sponsor SparkPeople by clicking on the ads but I found that they either re-direct to a spam site or you have to sign up for a stupid newsletter or something.
The ads may keep SparkPeople free but they are a huge waste of time or dangerous to click on.

The next time this happens with the Flash Updater ad or the audio ad, try to send a screenshot to adreport@sparkpeople.com because that will help track the ads down for removal.

I am really having trouble with your website's ads trying to hijack me and send me to a site I don't want to go to. Its happened on a person's blog, on the emoticon screen and just regular pages. Its disguised as a critical flash player update. Fortunately, my McAfee has successfully blocked them so far. In fact, its been blocking a lot of content on here. Also irritating is ads that will start playing audio visual when you are trying to watch a Spark video or listen to Spark radio. Then you have to wade through all your pages and see which one to shut down. I am seriously considering finding another tracking site with much less interference and slow downs. The front page is so unwieldy and takes a while to upload. You really need to screen and test the ads better. I love it here, but its so frustrating dealing with this interference. If you have any suggestions, I would welcome them.
