Pinned post

A few hours ago there was a pinned post at the top of rumours and news about the corpse of a child that had been frozen in ice for hundreds of years. I thought this rather strange for an aviation website and it has since disappeared. Is there any comment from the moderators as to why it appeared in the first place?

Hi tubby linton,

I have not seen this post. If you see it again, could you provide us the link and screenshot? I can discuss the removal of this with the team.

He's referring to one of the Sponsor Thread ads.

Yes that is what it was, but what does a frozen corpse have to do with aviation?Can any sponsored threads at least have some relevance ?

The latest one I have seen posted was in the Airlines Airports and Routes sub forum and was about this-

It was shown as sponsored content posted by Scribol. If I want to read this sort of nonsense then there are numerous websites that offer this drivel.

Appearing in other forums too. Total nonsense. If you need sponsorship make it aviation related please.

The link I'm seeing reads: "40 Years After Karen Klaas Was Strangled With Pantyhose, DNA Evidence..."

You should now only see the 'Sponsored Content' threads if you are signed out.

In response to concerns raised, IB have removed them from view for signed in members
