Crass adverts

The site policy on 'clean' posts is excellent. But if my wife looks over my shoulder while I am perusing the site, all she can see at the moment is an advert for 'Meet Sexy Polish Girls'.

Does that have to be the de facto site banner?

Moe, maybe I need to clean my glasses but that guy neither appears to be 71 nor an accountant, - nizhoni1, OCT 21, 2009

Seeing the add about models wanting men who make at least $100,000 / year reminds me...

Did anyone else see the ad about desperate red neck women that still have most of their teeth and are ready to settle for YOU right now! ... all you have to do is prove you are NOT currently incarcerated and have worked at least 1 month (total) in the past year.

I know, I know...it sounds like one of those things that are "too good to be true," but I still want to check it out, and I haven't seen the ad for days and I can't find their site. :'-(

Just to add a comment (and maybe why Heidita doesn't see the ad):

There must be some truth in the fact that once you earn enough points you get reduced ads, because I don't get a banner ad where your screen shots show that you are seeing one.

Something to look forward to!

I frequently get a lesbian dating ad...or some such. confused

If these are google AdSense ads, then I think certain categories can be blocked in the AdSense manager.

Sorry Heidita; I posted the question and went off to watch something on TV! Promise I am on Spanish dict and the advert has appeared most days this week. It's gone now, but I will email you a screenshot if / when it reappears. - Jespa, OCT 21, 2009

The adverts seem to vary on a regional (country by country) basis. Here is what I'm getting right now:

Yes - it would be nice... It definitely is not my favorite one wink

My opinion has noting to do with the site itself - just the advert is... no comments.
