About Those Gay Singles Ads…

Short version: They’re gone.

Long version: We were alerted to their presence this morning and immediately removed them. Since they are served by a network that has over 10,000 ads we had no real way of knowing they’d be there, but once we found out about them I immediately manually banned them due to their overtly suggestive nature. The settings we use for ads are supposed to prevent overtly sexual or objectionable ads, suggestive dating ads, distracting images, crude humor, or other questionable creative behavior or content from appearing.

Obviously I’ve dug deeper into those settings to try and tweak the media filter to make sure half-naked men or women don’t appear in our ads. To be clear the ad wasn’t removed because it targeted gay singles, it was due to the graphic looking so much like a come on for gay porn.
