    Default Inappropriate Ad

    I just saw an ad in the right column showing I'm not sure if it is an appropriate ad in this kid-friendly site. (:

    I better ask my Mom what that word means.
    ROFL.

    *EDITED - If this is inappropriate as an ad, please don't post the details on the form. Report it to the staff.

    Yes, there are are mature advertisements. Although, business' pay to have their ads shown. Since this is a free site some ads are shown even though it is a kid friendly site. I myself have seen some inappropriate ads on the columns but nothing to extreme measures can stop this.
    The internet has to show Ads in certain sites because they are paid to be there. Sites generally do not want to turn down money because online advertisements pay a good bit and can be beneficial to the site. (Some online ads can cost up to 100,000's to millions of dollars)
    Although you can choose to set your computer to "Safe Mode" meaning that you will not get ads but you cannot play on a lot of MMO games due to security.

    Best thing to do is report it to Ashley, or better yet, Kade, but your lucky to get a reply from Ashley about this. Just tell them the exact same info. you told us in this thread (:!

    AdBlock can financially run a site out of business and mostly against sites TOS and some cases using AdBlock is ILLEGAL for some sites, so you may have to create an exception for some sites, and using them on sites will run the site out of business as I already said and you can even possibly get you sued(or attempt to like proboards for example)
    If you continue using it make sure you get a lawyer.


    Report Inappropriate ads to v.bulletin or the staff here.

    Just warning you.

    They're are also hundreds or maybe even millions of sites who automatically block you if your computer is using AdBlock.

    You are getting content for no pay at all, just little ads on you're screen I think with free internet it's worth at least giving them some money for free even.(You don't pay it's just they get money, by using AdBlock you are stealing from them.)

    Even if ads are little, inappropriate ads should have something done about them.
    I.E I've seen an "Un-dress" ad and was very displeased at this and a bit appalled because it was an ad that was not right for a site that little kids (6+) went on.

    Are you sure that the ad is not about a poultry business, like Tyson Foods or Perdue Farms, or about a chicken cooking recipe? I'm wondering if the ad says "undressing a chicken." ROFL.

    It sounds like invoking her presence in a magickal ritual, lol. Will telepathy work? ROFL.
