Re: Another offensive ad from Google

I wonder if DS is actually making any money off these ads hen.. it doesn't sound like anyone clicks them.

Do you think they're saying I should run around in my undies or take a bath if I"m bored?
I have ad-blocker, the works. I am seeing this ad and it is just nasty! WTH is it doing on a parenting board?

Re: Another offensive ad from Google

I got on the ad website for google and complained about the ads. Apparently these ads are supposed to be screened to be relevant to the topic on the site. Do we say breast too much and that lets the offensive ads leak in?

I was cruising the site at work and my internet use was reported to IT due to one of the ads!

Hope that my complaint gets heard.

Oh wow, Im glad at work Im the one that scans for that sort of thing and sends the "stop looking at **** at work" emails out.

DS has become completely unusable for me in IE.. I have to force myself to open firefox to browse, otherwise it takes a long time to load.. the layout is all screwed up with ads and things talking to me, playing music and otherwise being annoying.

These ads are soooo inappropriate! And they did away with the TMI board? Oh, okay, that makes a lot of sense.

Oh come on! I'm a newbie but if this is what I'm going to be looking at I'd rather go somewhere else. Why are the owners doing this?

Ouch. I hope someone reads this. They're loosing "viewers" of the ads... not to mention traffic to this site.

Unfortunatly, money talks. I'm sure they're getting paid to have these offensive ads. This is supposed to be a family friendly site.

Oh my word, ITA!!! I have been getting nasty little ads on my computer too, and it makes me very upset every time. Why would they be on a website like this? I came to look at diapers, not boobs! I've seen most of the ones you've all posted, and a couple different ones. Very disturbing, and totally agree that it should NOT be on this website!!! Do something ds!!!!
