Why this website (chessgod101.com) automatically add ads/advertisement link when posting upon clicking send?

I observed many times but this website (chessgod101.com) edited the link upon clicking send and automatically add ads or link that is not the uploader posted link but posted link of this forum. I hope that if I someone post a link would not be accused like JIHED of "you're link has ads with malware or trojan" in which the uploader have no control and not his/her fault but fault of this forum/website (chessgod.101). I know that others who posted link observed it too.

I do hope that this makes thing clear.

Just to be clear, if you are talking about zippyshare - all ads can be avoided if you press "quote" to reveal the true link.

Take for example this post by Jiri (who was wrongly accused of link shortening) http://www.chessgod101.com/t4680-ct-art-6-0

If you simple click "quote" at the top of the page, you will see that the true link is shown. Now all you have to do is copy and paste it into your URL (don't click it) - doing this avoids all ads. This is a trick you must know on this forum, and this is not the fault of the uploader.

Try clicking "quote" on this message and the true link will be shown,
here is an example for Jiri's post you can practice on.

Now on the other hand we have something completly different - we have people (mainly one person and his multiple accounts) who are deliberately using link shortening services like ClicksFLy and LinkShrink where the person receives money for people viewing the ads.

The ads that the downloader has to go through on a shortened link are:

  • Known to be malicious and carry viruses


  • More ads


  • He is making money from other people's uploads without even asking (AND the people he is doing it to are not happy about it)



There is a big difference between the site changing links and someone using link shortening services. I hope I have explained this well enough.

I said I got a virus from following a link that he was posted - he accused me of lying and asked for more people to confirm

So I sent him quotes from like 5 different people reffering to viruses and ads and such - he said we are all lying.

But will he accuse these websites of lying too??

Again, just to reiterate, links being automatically changed (which is reversible using the quote button) is NOT the same as using a link shortening service to make money at a higher risk to the downloader.
