ClixSense does not promote gifting clubs. Advertisers promote gifting clubs.

Advertisers are buying space whose ads are approved by Clixsense... what is the difference?

The difference is, ClixSense does not promote gifting clubs. Advertisers promote for the most part, whatever they want to advertise, unless of course, stated otherwise in the policies. I don't tell you what you can't read. You can look at gifting clubs, read the gifting club site info, even choose to join it if you want to. ClixSense does not control you but as stated, they do have some policies in place in regards to adverts that advertisers must abide by.

I am pretty sure advertising an illegal activity would be against Clixsense guidelines.

That is easy for you to say that. You don't own ClixSense and you don't have to concern yourself here with advertisers and the slew of various programs they promote. If we were to dive deep enough, we could probably determine that over 99% of what is being advertised online in the make money arena, is illegal. So how far does it go and what does it stop?

It goes and stops when it is legally put down by the Feds or some other legal authority.

ClixSense does deny adverts according to their policies and what they feel deemed to deny. ClixSense has sent at various times thru-out their over 5 years in operation, warnings of blatant scams. It's not something do often nor something they want to get into.

I can make a couple of suggestions to you since you appear to feel so strongly about it. You can submit a support ticket to ClixSense with the 'gifting' program you consider illegal. Another suggestion is to not click the ad. If you click the ad, you can always click it off immediately.

Well, the IRS says cash gifting with the expectation of return is illegal. That is FEDERAL law. The FBI has cracked down on many rings and even more at the state level.

Illegal activity goes until it is stopped... yes. That doesn't mean it's promotion should be allowed. Marijuana ads are banned, so should any other illegal activity.

My concern is for Clixsense users that expect ads to be vetted at the very least for their legality. It is civic duty to watch out for those who may be scammed and even prosecuted in criminal court. As a respected member of the WWW and the leading PTC board, :clixsense: has an obligation to watch out for its users.

Submitting a ticket to remove one ad won't solve the problem. Guidelines need to be amended and made routine to screen out all such adverts. It doesn't take any extra effort as all ads are screened anyway. It simply needs to be added to the list.

It isn't illegal for Clixsense to run such ads, but it can be liable in a civil lawsuit. Craig's List is paying millions over similar issues.
