29. It didn't insult me. It was offensive and inappropriate on a number of levels ...
... and seemed so out-of-character with DU. I appreciate the mods explaining that they do not screen the ads ahead of time -- they are just fed directly to the forum by Google. (Though I am now wondering how Google decides which ads to send to which web-sites. I doubt they sent that ad to very many ....)

My biggest concern, besides seeing T&A and anti-deistic sentiments expressed prominently here in an advertisement, was my concern that someone in the opposition could easily point to such tacky tripe as reflective of our beliefs, values and attitudes here. Particularly if they were prepared ahead of time to be on the lookout for the ad (if you know what I mean).

Again, I am glad there's a way to alert the mods to our concerns and for them to take action if they feel it is warranted. It might be nice for them to have some way to get a "heads up" on an ad beforehand, just in case "someone" wants to place an ad for Diebold, ES&S, the Ku Klux Klan, the American Nazi party or the George Bush Memorial Library fund here.

(Just how many copies of "My Pet Goat" would they need to buy to fill the Smirking Chimp's li-bary anyway?)
