Thumbs down Can you get rid of...?

Can you guys get rid of those condom advertisements? I dont want to be on LucasForums and have my parents come into the room and then theres those ads. Or, contact UGO or something please.

I was just coming here to post about this matter.

The ads are very disturbing and aren't good for the site.

It brings the quality down almost in my mind.

Please change this, admins.

Yep. It sucks being a young teen. Well, not really. But still, if I was older, I wouldnt want these ads. They're a load of crap. And, they're annoying too! Damn UGO!

Yes, I know I'm reviving a 3 year old thread, but I think the new ads are mostly relevant to this.

To me, the new ads are too much. Honestly, I'm sick and tired of seeing 'She's waiting for you' or 'Satisfy the impulse!' And now a new one, 'A.M. or P.M.?' crosses the line. I'm probably a bit old-fashioned for a teenager these days, and yes, the site needs ads to generate a profit to keep running, but could you consider toning them down?

It's been said before, we don't control the ads, the ad agency does. We can however alert them to the fact that they suck ass at content control.

Yeah the Sexy Singles ads are REALLY getting me ticked off... my parents would be ticked if they saw that.

Does UGO just have no standards?

It's kinda irritating that I have to minimize LucasForums when someone walks in because there's a topless girl in some kind of pose on the side of the page.

Agreed. But, he I honestly have no problem with it, but some people may give the forums a bad impression seeing the ads have have nude female on the side.

Wait a second! Topless and nude females on each side?! And here I am like a sucker, using Firefox and Adblocking just about everything that's ever come from UGO and all other ad agencies.

The ads are still hanging around, unless these are the toned-down ads.
