Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Today I had this advert reported to me. I've covered a offensive word.

Now as I've mentioned in the past, I have told Google to block these types of adverts. But the way Google works, they sneak through. Basically google lets a advertiser claim their advert is for something safe, like clothing in this case, and then uses a picture with seductive click bait. Google doesn't check the adverts before they go online, and waits for complaints before taking action.

Point 1. I cant control this!
Point 2. Without google ads, the site will be shut down!

If you see a offensive advert, and yes, this one is in that category, please ignore it or report it to google, as I can not do anything. On the advert you should see a small X on the top right. Click on that, and you have a option to report the advert as being inappropriate. Google generally jump on these things quickly.

People say 2020 is a terrible year, with the bush fires, COVID 19, and riots. But I see it as the year we woke up to ourselves.
