Woah.   :-[  Our humblest apologies about that!  I can assure you that those ads were most definitely not on the site when Mike visited it and posted the link.  As a professional, technology focused site, Missing Remote does not want to be associated with that sort of "information".  I don't see a way to delete the news posting, so I've disabled the links and notified Mike about this.

Again, our sincerest apologies.

Gentlemen,

I hardly hold you responsible and appreciate your concern. I think the site had some embedded YouTube content and became a victim of some 4chan pranksters:

That would definitely explain it.  I had read about that exploit, but didn't make the connection.  Wow.  I'm really glad we don't use links like that here on MR!  An accident like that could do serious damage to a site's reputation.
