The forum currently advertises Ziber.io in one of its adspots.
Since the start of this round, their smart contract was hacked and investors funds were stolen.

The address currently shown on their page is not a smart contract address as claimed, but just a regular ETH address.
Any funds sent to this address are most likely going to be lost/stolen.

I know the forum shows that small disclaimer below ads, but in a case as blatant as this (like with bitcoinblackfriday before), the ad just should be removed, imo.

Removed, thanks.

I do some basic research on ads before accepting them in order to avoid ads for things which could be unexpectedly risky for forum users (eg. I just refused an ad for a brand new site which takes deposits, as that is generally risky), but I can't catch them all, unfortunately. In this case, I did my investigation around the 15th, which predated those scam accusations. After that, I didn't notice that there were any problems or I would've pulled it immediately.
