DS Allows Dating Ads?

I'm not sure what DS's policy is on ads.... but Dating Shemales ads on my screen seems a little less than family friendly.

Are these seriously allowed?

Browse with Firefox after adding the AdBlock Plus add-on, update as prompted & you won't see any of this...you also won't have crashing issues.

Firefox is free & safe, AND keep you antivirus updated (I've had no problems with McAfee but my Symantec wasn't great)

Re: DS Allows Dating Ads?

I wont use IE or Firefox for a plethora of reasons. I've intentionally gotten a virus from DS so my DH knew what it is. Since my computer acts as our homes server, it was important for us to know what the virus was just in case we got it without trying.

The viruses I've seen here are nothing really.... takes a quick reload of our server computer, which for us is less than 15 minutes. But other than the one I got intentionally so my husband could figure out what kind it was, I doubt I'll ever have an issue. I had to disable alot to get that! lol

I do however question the integrity of a 'family friendly' site that allows ads for pictures of shemales and asian singles. Just seems ... wrong? Against what I would think would be deemed family appropriate.

I have had firefox for awhile just dont like it but I just downloaded the adblock thing to see if it works because yes i do not really want to be looking at singles ads and that seems to be all i see.

DS does not condone these ad types are we are working to remove them as quickly as possible.

If possible please post the URLs here so we can make sure they are gone. You do NOT need to click the ad to get the url, it should show in the ad.

Re: DS Allows Dating Ads?

I have the Asian singles ad across my screen on every single page.

I am pretty laid back, and while I do agree it's not exactly family friendly, I have giggled a bit over.

My question is why this ad would pop up here. I mean this isn't exactly the demographic that would make this ad placement appropriate, know what I mean? Asian single women on a site for mostly American women talking about their families? Not the best place for that kind of marketing.

I have also noticed that if Adware of Spyware is already on your computer, it will cause ads like these to show. I have hunted a number of them down only to realize that the ads on the site were never showing dating sites like the ones mentioned in the original post.
