Yep. I made note of the same ad in another thread. And, it happens to appear right under our beautiful SM banner. Yikes is right. :smstarz:
Is it a european site? because that is our standard. 6.6 - 8.8lbs/3-4kgI just looked the site up.
At the very bottom of the page it says: About Malteses.
And it says that the standard is (quote):
Brit, I'm sick about these ads. Seems like NOTHING has been done about them. I have spent half my life protesting this crap, just to have it show up, on the very forum, my Rescues use as an avenue. As a place for help.
We were told over, and over, again, how nothing would change with the new ownership. We were told it will only get better. Many posters, for lack of a better phrase, were told to "wake up, and get into the 21st century".
In my eyes, we've taken a few steps back. And nope, I will not be renewing my membership. I will not, financially, support a site which is advertising/supporting poor breeding practices.
And nope. I don't want to hear the "Just let us know, and we'll take care of it" crap. That has already proven worthless, and a waste of time, for those of us who have complained. If anything, it's gotten worse.
I will not apologize for my vent. If the owners cannot, or will not, do anything about this, then they owe my dogs an apology.
Could our forum put a warning sign like they do with cigarettes on top
in red that says we do not endorse the pop up adds...or something like that....they could be just popping up like they do on my yahoo site. its just a thought
This was posted at 9:36. It is now 11:15 CST. Blocking ads sure takes a long time. Guess I'm very impatient, but I just saw the dang ad again right before I am responding to this post.I apologize for the ads that you guys are seeing. I know it's not much comfort to some of you to tell you that we are blocking the links as they are made known to us. I am getting the links blocked as we speak.
