When I logged into SM today my useername and pw were gone so I saw what I gather the outsider sees. What hit me in the face was an ad for Maltese puppies!! We've always been a site that supports ethical show breeders and condemns puppy mills, on line breeders (who are often a scam) and backyard breeders. So why is there advertising for just such puppies allowed to advertise here? I'm extremely disappointed and can't support this by staying on here.

Sue, send an email to the administrator. I’ve already reported it and got nowhere.

I noticed that too. It’s very disappointing to see. I tried to stay as optimistic as possible about the change, but quite frankly, I do not like anything about it, including those puppy ads. It makes it very difficult to come back everyday to check in on our SM family.

Sue and Maggie,

My guess is these are block ad buys from Google or another vendor. They are not specific ads bought by the site. When you go the site, it looks at your browsing history, sees Maltese and returns these ads. This whole micro-targeting thing. Normally the admin can asked them to be removed from gallery of choices.

When you say you got nowhere after reporting, does that mean they can’t stop the ads or they were unresponsive to your request in general? Sorry, just trying to sort this out.

He said to report what we see, but didn't come across as being proactive or sympathetic to the cause.

I just came back here because it turned me off so much that I decided to get off SM. This happened years ago and they were able to remove them. I didn't have my password saved on Chrome but have on Firefox which tanks all the time so just went into SM as an outsider would. And I saw the ads. A long time ago this happened and we discussed the mission of this site and wrote up a mission statement that shows how we don't support puppy mills and backyard breeders. And now people come to us and see puppies from just such places. :( I'll try to reach the admin. Is it not Yung anymore Maggie?

This is a question to which I would also like an answer! Sue said it all, no reason to elaborate. Please ADMIN come to the table & let's talk.

It isn’t Yung. You will have to direct message Administrator.
