tedster, I went to daniweb just now, I have been to them before but never went to their homepage and browsed as I always landed on a post through google.
I went to the vb.net section and clicked the first topic I saw. To my surprise, I was taken off the site to some autodesk software.
I look back at daniweb and its a very cleverly disguised ad. It looks exactly like the other topics. It does say AD, but it was very easily overlooked.
There is also a small ad located above the category description. It is labeled, but blended nicely.
I think panda is meant to tackle this exact type of thing.
