Default The ads

I am very concered about some of the ads around PE2K showing pornographic and offensive material. Although the older of us might enjoy it, I am 13 and if i'm on PE2K and an ad like this shows up, I get my computer access taken away as my parents think I'm on some porn site, is there a way for me or you to filter out these ads?

Over

For the record, there isn't any porn ads on pe2k. The worst they've had is a matchmaker equipped with a horoscope. And its your responsiblity to click on those ads or not. They say 18 and older, and its your problem if you feel offense to them.

Still, half the ads that pop up appear based on random things in people's sigs, and some things that nobody's going to click on are getting advertised. I recommend using entirely regular Google ads, or AdSense to generate better results. If you're going to make money by advertising on your site, PE2K, (and by the way, the very fact that you advertise so much is what draws the crowds of ad-clicking, profit-making n00bs), at least make the ads more relevant and make sure nothing like those "do not click unless you are 18" things pop up. It's practically daring younger members to expose themselves to that stuff, since practically nobody can resist "do not click here". Make an effort to make the ads more relevant.

There was, however, one ad that contained slightly offensive material.
It was a "Get Rid of Porn" dealio and well, it was erm... creative.
