Skinner, please take that ad off this site.
Advertisements [?]
Ads by BlogAd has a picture of a gagged woman. WTH!

I understand DU needs revenue but that is so wrong.

Bound and gagged females for titillation should not

be advertised on this site for whatever price. Delete

that ad.

     - Always a pleasure talking with you Sid . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:03 PM   #35 
        - You don't have to pay to have it removed...  SidDithers   Dec-03-09 02:05 PM   #37 
        - Evidently, you missed post #3 "Donate or adblock it" ----  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:34 PM   #50 
        - Adblock is free free free. nt  Codeine   Dec-03-09 02:37 PM   #55 
        - Not everyone has "adblock" . . . the effort that should be made is to REMOVE the ad . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 03:05 PM   #92 
           - No, the effort should be to figure shit out yourselves.  Codeine   Dec-03-09 03:08 PM   #98 
              - IF you have any concern for women and the violence against them . ..  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 11:09 PM   #151 
        - It's called a choice, not blackmail.  EOTE   Dec-03-09 02:40 PM   #58 
        - The choice here is to portray a photo of violence against women . . . or to remove it --  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 03:05 PM   #93 
           - No. The choice is that you can choose to see the photo or not.  EOTE   Dec-03-09 03:10 PM   #100 
        - Evidently, you missed the second half of post #3 "adblock it"...  SidDithers   Dec-03-09 02:46 PM   #62 
           - Obviously, you don't see CHOICE as removing the ad . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 03:08 PM   #97 
        - Well...  RobinA   Dec-03-09 03:10 PM   #101 
           - My apologies for the brick comment...  SidDithers   Dec-03-09 03:17 PM   #110 
              - How about this, Sid.  Kalyke   Dec-03-09 03:32 PM   #117 
                 - Then, how about PMing Skinner?  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 07:02 PM   #137 
        - Or someone can just PM Skinner and the other admins with their complaint on the ad  tammywammy   Dec-03-09 05:24 PM   #133 
           - Bingo! It has been suggested, but not done.  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 07:01 PM   #136 
  - Meanwhile, here's a counter-kick ---  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 01:37 PM   #22 
  - Most likely there are people on DU who are into BDSM.  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 01:37 PM   #23 
  - I don't care about what people are into privately  Ken Burch   Dec-03-09 01:39 PM   #24 
     - How do you equate an unrec vote as "insisting" that advertisement be on this website?  A HERETIC I AM   Dec-03-09 01:43 PM   #27 
     - OK...I guess I don't get why anyone would want this discussion hidden  Ken Burch   Dec-03-09 01:46 PM   #31 
        - How the hell is it hidden if it gets unrec'd?  A HERETIC I AM   Dec-03-09 01:51 PM   #32 
        - And apparently you feel much more strongly on this than I do  Ken Burch   Dec-03-09 01:56 PM   #33 
        - What I feel strongly about is people bitching about other members using a feature of this board  A HERETIC I AM   Dec-03-09 02:00 PM   #34 
           - Or you can "KICK" for a counter-UN . . . even better --- !!!  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:07 PM   #39 
        - Because as SKINNER, himself has noted in one of his posts . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:06 PM   #38 
           - A thread will only sink if nobody replies to the OP.  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 02:35 PM   #51 
              - IF they don't get to SEE the thread, they can't "reply" . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:36 PM   #54 
                 - That only happens on the Greatest Page.  Codeine   Dec-03-09 02:39 PM   #57 
                 - Thread win!  A HERETIC I AM   Dec-03-09 02:44 PM   #61 
                 - Again, as SKINNER, himself pointed out . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:47 PM   #63 
                    - Can you produce the thread in which Skinner supposedly said this?  A HERETIC I AM   Dec-03-09 02:48 PM   #66 
                    - No -- that must be because I'm lazy or it doesn't exist? Go find it -- it was his last one --  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:49 PM   # 
                       - Well, here is Skinner's last thread;  A HERETIC I AM   Dec-03-09 03:11 PM   #103 
                    - That must be why a few here fought for the right to "UN" . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:48 PM   #67 
                    - That has nothing to do with rec or unrec. It has only to do with  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 02:49 PM   #68 
                    - Again . . . SKINNER, himself, specifically referred to un-recs  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:50 PM   #71 
                       - "Better to be silent and thought a fool...  SidDithers   Dec-03-09 02:54 PM   #76 
                       - I think you should take your own advice . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 03:01 PM   #85 
                       - You know, you're going to have to go find that thread, so we can  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 02:55 PM   #78 
                          - Ask Skinner for it -- or one of the mods . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 03:02 PM   #86 
                    - ONLY on the Greatest Page. nt  Codeine   Dec-03-09 02:52 PM   #73 
                       - Can you quote Skinner's post . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 03:03 PM   #87 
                          - I don't believe said post even exists.  Codeine   Dec-03-09 03:07 PM   #96 
                             - Agreed...nt  SidDithers   Dec-03-09 03:09 PM   #99 
                             - And I'm confident that your  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 03:11 PM   #102 
                                - I can confirm that I am not Siouxsie Sioux  Codeine   Dec-03-09 03:12 PM   #104 
                 - Anyone who depends on the front page and the greatest page  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 02:47 PM   #64 
                    - How do you know that people who glance at "Greatest" don't also look at "Latest" and  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:53 PM   #75 
        - Hidden? How is it hidden?  MineralMan   Dec-03-09 02:33 PM   #49 
           - Because . . . as SKINNER himself noted in one of his recent posts . . .  defendandprotect   Dec-03-09 02:38 PM   #56 
              - You've posted this like 8 times and you're still wrong.  superduperfarleft   Dec-03-09 02:50 PM   #70
