2017, better morals, please

I have been found unpleasant because I have used words that foolish people consider swearwords, I have mentioned body parts of men and women, I consider them ordinary, wikipedia knows about them, only very narrow minded people consider them rude.

What I have *not* done is present adverts to people that are illegal to posses.

JTH, and everyone, do you have any idea where the difference rates in legal terms?

If I show you an illegal image I expect to be punished, possibly to go to jail.

Why is it OK for you to unexpectedly show me an image that it is illegal for me to posses in my country just because I was trying to help you by saying YES to adverts?

Further, who the [removed] do you think you are to moralise and say play nice?

Illegal images are our societal definition of, "not nice", for the very reason that people go to jail for owning and presenting them.

Me saying [removed] is not illegal to posses, me calling someone an idiot is not illegal to posses, but you seem to consider these more important than actual illegal images being presented.

I remain *very* angry about this, JTH, I can't believe one person saying "he said a swearword" is more important than an internationally illegal image, get your priorities right next year, beautiful Smile

Fully Discussed

This was fully discussed in the previous thread.

As mentioned, I am sorry you were exposed to such an image. Unfortunately, we don't control the ads. Google AdSense - one of the world's largest ad networks - does. Google AdSense served the ad to your browser. There is a control button on the ads themselves to report inappropriate ads. You must report them to Google. As Google AdSense is a self service ad service, there is no review of most ads before they are put out on the network. It is up to users to report inappropriate ones. If you are uncomfortable with this, use an ad blocker like uBlock or AdBlock Plus. Note that you will also have to block ads on reddit, imgur, and many many other sites, all of which use Google AdSense as either their primary ad network or to show ads on unsold page view inventory in addition to their direct ad sales. On all of those sites you will experience the exact same thing.

To be crystal clear, the only way for me to remove all possibility of an inappropriate ad being seen at the present time is to shut down this site. This site can not operate without the ad revenue being brought in by AdSense. AdSense can not guarantee you won't see inappropriate ads. There is no good self-service alternative to AdSense with similar revenue at present.

Our sitewide forum guidelines prohibit abuse and profanity. If you don't wish to act professionally and courteously, you are free leave. If you stay and continue violating these guidelines, you will be banned.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

think, you'll need to ban your president elect, [removed]

If I call you a [removed] because of your view, are you really going to ban me?

It isn't a nice way to describe parts of a lady in my family but is in others, for example in North America where you are.

For example by your president elect.
