    Roms or Warez are forbidden on Gbatemp.
    But i have seen google Ads directing to some rom sites i am not gonna say which.
    But i think this should be fixed before somebody tries to close Gbatemp.

    This couldn't be fixd.
    The only way is fully deleting google ads code.

    I don't know if you can control what adverts popup with Google Ads, but if you can't control them I'd probably recommend GBAtemp switching to AdBrite, because I'm pretty sure you can choose what adverts you want and don't want.

    Wow, it would be a real bummer if this would cause any problems for the site.

    I've seen this, but theres nothing we can do. We dont really have control over whatever ads are displayed.
    However I really doubt clicking a "ds roms!" link will take you to an actual DS rom site as this is against the google adsense policy agreement...
    more like informational websites you'd find when googling such terms.
    They use these words to drag you into their website and then you end up finding no rom downloads at all.

    either way the content of these ads is not under our responsibility. This is Google adsense...

    As Law already said, AdBrite is very good too.

    But gamespot promotes their games and we well you know we are pirates so if nintendo could choose about closing on site then we we would be ythe favorite to close....

    Nah, Google Ads won't ever cause a site to be closed, rather the content of the site.
