Does advertising include pornography?

Advertising blocks

I am now seeing some advertising blocks on here that are little short of pornographic. In fact, they are soft porn in my opinion. I certainly wouldn't want my grandchildren to see them. I write on a computer in a room to which everyone in the family has access and I could be writing while children are playing on the floor.

Unaware of these until they appear

I was unaware of these adverts until one appeared that I could not dismiss as being for a dating site or for female underwear. I think the clue was in the fingers hooked in the "lady's" briefs, and dragging them down. Are these the kinds of adverts that are likely to appear on this site?

These ads pop up in rotation in the header. I think they are experimenting with different ad networks which do not give you the opportunity to approve ads in advance.

I believe admin is aware of this problem and is trying to eliminate such adverts. You are correct in saying that some of them are verging on pornography - not what we want on this site.

elitecodex has posted about these ads. He has already contacted the ad provider, to let them know that ads for Persona Paper must be family friendly and that these particular ads are not welcome here.

Should you ever see ads that you find offensive or in any way inappropriate, please use the contact form to let him know. If you can, grab a screenshot of the ad so he can see what you're seeing. It helps him to figure out which advertiser he needs to contact, so keep the full page with the address bar and such intact :)

elitecodex wrote a post about this. They don't want racy ads, either

MegL I personally don't have a problem with those ads. I have seen them. But I understand where you're coming from with children around. We all know with lots of advertising, sex does sell. It has been that way for many years.

This advert was not "sex sells", more "selling sex"!

I'm still seeing the 'Hot Girls Only Chat' ad. That's all I see. I'm not complaining but I know these are not the ads that we want in PP so I'll be semi-glad to see these ads gone. LOL!

I haven't spent much time here while I've been gone, but I haven't seen the ad lately. I'm hoping it's gone now.

MegL Is that the one with the girl in black and white wearing a pink t-shirt pulling over her privates? If so, I don't mind that add. It don't bother me.

I'm glad it's going to be taken care of. I was at the library when that particular ad appeared!

I do not see any questionable ads now. The ads are now about Christmas shopping.

Thank goodness they seem to have gone, thanks to elitecodex
