Seriously. What the fuck.

I'm all for promoting the ad revenue on this site and I know the editors have no control over what is assigned, but seriously......

We're making a big effort to get rid of junk ads that are provided by third parties. I've notified our adops people about that one, thanks for the heads up.

bs ads seem to be common place on the internet... which is why there are a number of lawsuits forthcoming against not only the sleezy ad companies that are coming up with these ads but against many websites and such that are simply throwing them out because there is a dysfunctional relationship between the marketing department and the editorial one.... this website is one perfect example.... we have intelligent well meaning editors... and a parent company that has no clue other than making money.... so they have their idiotic marketing company try to make money in whatever way they can.... in the long run there will be legal ramifications for the shortsightedness of the idiots at future..... nuff said...

ps

don't worry Will after they lose everything i'll hire you mang..... :wink:

Funny ... I thought MPC might have finally given away that i5.

At this rate, it'll be obsolete by the time it ships to the winner! :P

thing is the lawsuit is initially aimed at companies that basically lie or deceive using ads on the internet... the argument is against the marketing companies placing these ads and the companies themselves but there is talk that there may be spill over in making the website owners responsible as well in that they are making profit on illegal advertising...

FYI, the ads that you guys are complaining about are running through Google. When we run through all our ad inventory for the month, they start running those, and some of them are skeezy. If you email me pictures of the offending ads (keep them small files please), I'll get them pulled.

Unfortunately, there are A LOT of these ads.
