non-food website advertisements
i recently logged on to Chow.com and saw a non-food advertisement for collegehumor.com. specifically for the "Cute college girl of the day".
i feel advertisements like this are SLEAZY and have no reason to be on a website about food.
i log on fairly often and i dont like seeing this pointless ad.
every link i click on has this ad pop up on the side and i'm tired of seeing this sleazy rubbish on a site like this one.
i'm actually pretty surprised that its on here - i THOUGHT this was a reputable site?
who controls what gets advertised on this site and why isnt it being filtered?
really - it makes me NOT want to visit this site anymore.
I agree that the "College girl" ad is offensive. Specifically, it's sexist, and it appears that CBS endorses the objectification of women (duh, but I would hope they'd try not to advertise this fact).
I know one way to give ad feedback is to click the (small, gray font) "advertisement" link next to the ad, and then submit a report to CBS that way.
But yeah, I find this sort of thing an overt slap in the face from an otherwise safe and welcoming atmosphere.
