4 ads in the Vaccinations forum, all Pro Vax. I don't know how we would have time to read the forums if we were reporting ads all day long.

At first, I thought, "Eh, doesn't bother me, just ignore them." But I am firm in my beliefs. Others, who have just come here for information may be swayed by these ads, and this does bother me.

This is really, really bad, y'all. I'm not normally an "outraged" type of member when it comes to stuff like this, but this is just nuts.

AP and NFL are counterculture...and nothing (or very, very little) google ads is going to place in the forums is going to jive. We've got nothing but ads for vaccines in the vax forum, pro-circ creepiness in the CAC forum, etc.

This is just...impossible. Take out the bad stuff and there's just going to be an endless supply of new bad stuff waiting to move in.

I don't mean to be pessimistic, but I'm not seeing how this is going to work.

This is really sad.

I know earthy mommies takes donations from its members to make its quota. Couldn't we do something similar? This mainstream propaganda is making me ill.

I just saw one on CAC that said

Big Penis
Find all you want on ebay!


Since when can you buy a big penis on ebay? I know I probably should not be saying that on a family friendly site, but that is exactly what the ad said!!

True but seriously many posters warned what could, would and now did happen as it came to the ads and were ignored.

infact in order to protect myself from Google ads, by using adblock in Firefox, I've now lost the WAHM banner ads, which I did click and buy from
and lots of those sales were spur of the moment buys, so in my case bringing google only created a loss for the wahm's who run ads here, cause I'm no longer tempted to shop.

Adult diapers are a fetish aren't they? So adult diaper adds just having a raging conflict with the UA right?
This has been talked about for months now, so why weren't these bugs all worked out beforehand? " Dear Google, pleace don't send us any ads that are pro-circ, pro-vax, pro-fetish,etc. We are a family friendly site and would prefer not to have penis enlargement ads."

At the moment I see 2/4 next to this page.
Google ads work by analysing the text on the page to choose "relevant" ads, of course their computers have no idea if our c*irc refs are positive or negative.
That may be so, but how is that going to do us any good on the circ board? We can't stop talking about circ there.

This stinks.

Weeell, let's see. In the five minutes that I'm going to give this google add thing before reinstating my Firefox ad-blocker...

www.juicyjuice.com - aren't they owned by Nestle?
www.cheerios.com - just doesn't seem to fit Mothering's objectives.
www.mylicon.com - symethicone, Carboxymethylcellulose sodium, citric acid, D&C red 22, D&C red 28, flavors, maltitol, microcrystalline cellulose, purified water, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, xanthan gum. Yeah, that's a product that fits our ideals, huh?
www.lunesta.com - prescription sleep aid?
www.wondertime.com - a new magazine from Parenting. Ugh. I actually flipped through an issue of this today at a bookstore. I was impressed by an article about "Why Kids Should Talk Back". Less impressed by the headline, "Childbirth - What a Pain." In any case, it's not the worst parenting mag I've seen. But it's far from the best, either. It's very conventional.
familyrewardpath.com - their headline was, "Free Infant Formula"
www.homeschool-books.com - they have an entire section on "Child Training." An excerpt from one of their books:
Quote:
This system is divided into two distinct phases, controlling and teaching. The control phase is the establishment of the parents' right of rulership over the will of the child.
www.singleparentsmatcher.com - a matchmaking site? Come on.
prevention.com - their advice is screamingly mainstream. There are so many drug ads in that magazine, it's amazing it fits in a mailbox.
www.qualityhomecaref (the url was cut off in the little box, and I'm not clicking through and giving them the money just to see the whole thing) - selling adult diapers.
www.thecutebaby.com - "Do you have a cute baby? Submit your photos to win prizes"???
Oh, jeez. Everything that shows up in the WAHM forum.
www.healthtracks.com, www.healthpolitics.com and www.kelsey-seybold.com. All pro-vax. In the vax forum.
www.circumcisioncenter.com
10-bestsites.com - "Adult Circumcision. 10 top adult circumcision sites. Search adult circumcision sites."
circumcision.prsto.com
Reuters.com - "Boys circumcised en masse."
www.fitness-singles.com - more singles sites.
www.babycenter.com and www.ivillage.com - both stunningly mainstream.
TWO of the links on the "I'm Pregnant" forum are for miscarriage/grief. Yeah, now, that's encouraging.

Every time you click on one of those links, MDC makes money. The ads are served based on the keywords on the page, so the more you put a certain word on a page, the more ads there will be served for that keyword.

If you don't support these ads, stop clicking on them.

I dont mind mdc making money on them, and those ads are going to show up regardless of if we click or not, they are done by keywords, and the circ forum cant just stop talking about circs!

In answer to your question, yes. You can right click the link and select "Open in New Window." Again, when you click the ad MDC makes money on it.

I'm so disappointed.


And that disappointment in MDC grows... every single time I see that freakin' Nastý ad staring me right in the face. Or the pro-sick ads in the CAC forum...


How is it that a Nastý ad was accepted? I mean, sorry, but I don't get how that could be in the first round of ads that show up....and shouldn't this have started on a day when someone was around to get the offensive ads INSTANTLY?

Even if we can block them what about the new members just now coming in see a forum like cac and start : when the ads definatly do not match up with the content of the forum. How many new members are we going to loose because of this how many boys will be circ because of the pro circ info in those : ads. :

The ads can be blocked, but if you guys keep clicking on the objectionable ads, why they heck would they want to?

Hovering over the link won't necessarily give you the correct URL either. Some of them could be affiliate links with a redirect on them.

Sign up for Adsense and read about how it works if you want to know more. I stopped using it because I was spending all my time pruning ads I didn't want on my site.

Have there been any nfl friendly ads yet? Sure there may be very few that are not totally offensive or completely contrary but I have yet to see or read any that are actually nfl appropriate.
