Angry Offensive Jemsite adds

When I logged into jemsite today there was a large add for a "***dar" for your phone on the forum front page.

Its nice to see jemsite advocating homophobia...

what next "jewdar" ... nothing like a bit of fascism ... but why stop there

If it was a Google add I don't think anybody but Google has control over those.

Rich is correct. I have been through this with other clubs/forums I have been in on the net. All they can do is ask google to take them down. Jemsite is not at fault for these ads. So chill out and ignore it.

And considering all the talk of "DNA" guitars you gotta wonder what we will see next.

Re: Offensive Jemsite adds

We use the word "axe" all the time...why no Craftsman Tools ads?


Let's be honest, though...let's all just be thankful that the Google ads don't interpret stuff a little more freely than they do. Otherwise, Jemsite would be chock full of Viagra and herbal c*ck enlargement ads.
