This thing will hijack advertisements with its own, specifically for Facebook, eBay, Amazon, Buy.com or pretty much any other site that displays ads such as Adsense. I am a website owner who has some ads and displayed and was shocked to see that this plugin actually overwrite my ads with there custom ones.
