Abortion-promotion ad on CGR

Hey y'all,

Does CGR control which ads come up? Because this one just came up. I don't think ads which promote the slaughter of the unborn (even if paired with an end to sexual violence, which is a fantastic thing) are appropriate here.

Oh wow.

Looks like google ads. There admin can check/uncheck certain ad types.

P.S. I thought everyone had an adblock nowadays

If I recall correctly, when this has happened in the past it was due to a random ad being placed there as the site doesn't regulate and approve every ad. Most likely it is as G says and it is Google and it may have slipped through on a particular category.

I have ad block, so I haven't seen this. Maybe I will disable ad-block for CGR, since I should support it anyway, haha.

I'm not sure, as an admin, how to do anything about this, but if no one else gets to it first then I will try to have a look.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, though.

I looked and don't see a way to block certain things. I know it can be done but I haven't found the way yet.

This makes me unbelievably happy.

Edit:

I should note, it makes me happy to see ads displaying viewpoints which would be considered as alternative to the the general consensus in conservative/religious communities. By no means am I trying to endorse ideas that disabled or otherwise "imperfect" individuals would be better off aborted. Also, by no means am I trying to endorse the idea of abortion for sake of convenience. While I am pro-choice and pro-bodily autonomy, I am by no means a proponent of abortion in general. I apologize. My comment crossed a line and I didn't mean to.

Back in the early days, pre-Adsense, our ad network had a glitch one day and was showing porn ads. Not racy, not controversial, but flat out porn. It only lasted a few hours, and the traffic was still fairly small, but it was a really stressful day.
