Holy Mackeral when did that black band beneath the header 'Ads by Google' show up?? Talk about Puppy Mill & BYB ads!:w00t: :angry:
It's very clever, isn't it? It mimics the SM header exactly.I wonder if this was done on a Friday with the idea that the watchman wouldn't do anything about it until the beginning of the business week. The way it is done, it appears to be a part of the SM heading. Very misleading--as if it is a part of SM--sort of an endorsement. :angry:
Have you noticed the topics in that bar change if you do any searches? UGH! I hate Google!I do know the Google Custom Search slot and button started I think about a week or so ago and I really didn't mind that, but today I saw the black bar saying Ads by Google, Puppies for Sale, etc. That's a whole other thing. Hoping Yung gets to it first thing Monday.
I think that might be by chance. I'd be very surprised if the ads depended on whether or not someone was logged in but mods would know better.I don't typically log off when I leave SM so I've not noticed this before. But when I got on SM the other day I was not logged in and was viewing the forum as someone, well...not logged in. And there were puppy mill and puppy broker ads on this site. But we don't see them when we're logged in. Can that be changed so they aren't on the site regardless if someone has an account and is signed in?
