Is JavaRanch promoting cheating? (relating to Google Ads)

Look at the advertisement. One of it is from (removed link) which says in Chinese: 代考 Lpi java ciw IT認証 分期付款 信譽保証 一次通過 lpi java ciw 等國際IT認証考試 .

Perhaps you cannot read Chinese. It says they can take the examination (Oracle, Cisco, SUN, Microsoft, etc) for anyone.

How come this kind of adv can appear here? Does that mean javaranch implicitly endorse cheating?

(Edited to give topic a accurate title - BFG)

I can assure you that JavaRanch neither implicitly or explicitly supports, endorses or promotes any kind of cheating or copyright infringement. The continuation of a resource such as JavaRanch depends on such a policy in the long run and JavaRanch is and will be around for the long run. I run a site with similar aims to JavaRanch and I have been collaborating with similar aims since around 1999.

Due to the nature of the web there is always the possibility of end users attempting to promote cheating. To help ensure the aims of a site like Javaranch there is a dedicated team of skilled, alert knowlegable experts (called the moderators) who constantly read posts to try to ensure the aims and standards are maintained. Not only do the "official" moderators of forums watch for content but both non moderators and moderators in other capacities do a similar task. (Note I am not listed as a moderator at this forum but I keep a close eye on things).

Note that "Ads by Google" are just that: ads provided by Google. JavaRanch does not get to see or approve these ads before they are displayed. Unfortunately, they do occasionally display some ads that we consider objectionable. When we see an advertisement like this being distributed by Google AdWords, we can report it to Google, and ask that it be blocked from our site. If you see an ad like this, please report it by private message to a bartender or sherriff right away. Thanks!

Moving to our JavaRanch forum...
Hey cool! They got a blimp! But I have a tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
