    There's some ad "Play up to 60" that seems like it's harvesting personal information of children....

    Interesting idea, instead of making it all click-driven, it's a flash ad that uses mouseover interaction and keypresses to achieve its seemingly innocuous goal.

    And B, you're welcome for the click-thru.

    Without the url, i can't block it. when you see weird stuff like this, pm me a link to the ad (ie, right click -> copy link location)
