Please, Someone Tell Me That I am NOT Hallucinating

The main page of the Internet site for one of the three largest poker print magazines now shows a front-and-center banner ad for a product in gross violation of virtually every large online poker site's ToS.

That is all.

Ain't it a hoot?

On this one, I'm going to go with the old adage about "never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity."

Were it malice, were Bluff actually biting the hand that fed it for so long, then the banner would still be in the rotation. But it's not; it seems to have been yanked alomst immediately, and I did a couple of hundred page refreshes and couldn't make the thing pop back into view.

The obvious conclusion, then, is that someone in Bluff's sales/marketing department is a total 'tard, and the banner shown above lasted until the first time someone at Bluff that actual knows any fucking thing about poker happened to see it. At that point, insta-nuke.
