    I don't think it's them as much as their advertisers.

    Say you had a brand a big national brand... Would you want your logo being brandished in a post full of profanity, or half dressed women ?

    Seriously, sex sells. That has been a fact of advertising for as long as there has been advertising. Everyone that has something to sell uses shills to sell it.

    You now that.

    I know that.

    Anyone who watches TV, movies, reads magazines or papers, or actually pays attention to the bazillion billboards out there knows that.

    I really question the recent push by the Google Adsense advertisers to eliminate certain "content". On the one hand it looks like the Puritans are making a push for decency.

    On the other hand it looks like an effort to eliminate competition.

    And there are anti-trust laws for that.

    Porn?

    You bet.

    Do we come here for it?

    Absolutely not.

    And are you within your rights as a forum owner and admin to expect that we limit what we post?

    Without a doubt.

    No, but then again I would expect this advertising on a site dedicated to truckerz.

    So I have noticed how the ads tend to follow the discussions. This is because the Google Adsense thingy has an algorithm that skims words from the posts and then associates ads it thinks are relevant to to the discussion.

    So if we are talking about the mud flap babes, those chrome silhouettes that you can buy and put on your truck, I would bet that you will then see ads for them.

    So the advertisers will then be seeing ads of things we are being asked to not place in our posts.

    Great.

    After this silly post now I am seeing ads for erectile dysfunction medicine, lingerie, condoms, bread, soda pop and deodorant soap.

    Oh, and I'm getting spam e-mail for healthcare.

    Way to go Backpacker.
