I saw a couple of adult ads in the top google ad section tonight. Seems inappropriate. I saw nothing in the text on the page pertaining to sex or adult themes. :shrug:

I wonder if Google indexed

I wonder if Google indexed the page while some of the spam posts were still attached.
We got hit by quite a bit of spam over the last couple of hours.

A well and truly amusing idea

Wouldn't that be a hoot, if T is triggering the off-color ads? Laughing out loud

cheers,

I think he's trying to throw us off the trail by being first to complain. Of course, I didn't even notice them—not having been looking for that sort of thing. Tongue

Oh that old trick, not going

Oh that old trick, not going to work though all it's done is draw attention to an issue hitherto gone unnoticed, now though we're all focussed on it . Tricks like always tend to backfire :rolleyes:

So I suggest that Tony sets up a 'Sin Bin' sub forum into which we can funnel all spam and CSS gamer inquiries. To this forum, members shall be banished for a period suitable for the transgression (one week would seem appropriate) during which period they shall be required to deal with all posts entering said forum. I of course hold a 'Get out of jail free' card in perpetuity Smile

Tis a strange & puzzling aphorism :?

Bah, I didn't expect to be found out. Tongue

Gary check your private messages.

I was just looking at the ads and I says to myself, "Hey, I'm and adult. I like friends. I should click that link. These people apparently live near me and want to meet up for a fun time. I like fun." :scared:

Yeah, and there aren't even any bare-nekkid-ladies Sad, and the site is mostly down/under construction anyway.
