MOCpages adverts

Hasn't anyone noticed the ads on the 'pages now? Most of them say "I got ripped in 4 weeks" and "Single mom finds one trick to turn yellow teeth white." I know Sean is very busy at times, and he can't go on MOCpages much, but these adverts? Come on! There are more children than adults on MOCpages (What I think) And do we want adverts of a fat man saying "I was a fat slob until I got ripped in 4 weeks," and "Yellow teeth are disgusting." No! So when Sean isn't busy, he could probably get rid of those adverts in place for some less annoying ones. At one time, my anti-virus program (AVG Free) Found a Trojan horse downloader when it was loading a page! Ridiculous. Just ridiculous. Has anyone been affected by a similar thing here?

This has been mentioned at least four times before now.

Supposedly he only deletes the really foul ones.

Well, at least we don't have those Evony ads with a well-endowed woman, plus plentiful cleavage, and text of "come play now, my lord" anymore.

Hmm..

Well, I'm not one to pry into your browsing habits, but there may be a tracking cookie on your computer tailoring your ads to the type of sites you visit most.

Otherwise, Firefox and Adblockplus should do it.

Nah, it can't be that,it could be the fact that I use IE8, the lowest on protection.

Plus, I run a daily scan for my computer, so if anything is hidden in there, it gets it out and deletes it.

You know what you were saying? Well, this may prove you wrong. And this photo is un-edited, apart from the square and circle I put in. You can sort of tell what's down there though.

Really I only go on MocPages and gamespot, now all I see are ads for horror movies, good driver quizes, and sears and and bunch of other nonsense that you said. Seriosly clean up the ads, and I have seen the Evony ones a couple of times lately, my friend almost got in trouble for that while at school while he had permission to be on Mocpages..

"Work at home": Translation: send out hundreds of emails to other people saying 'hey, quit your job, work at home!' for a penny a message.
