I will save everyone the trouble right now; The characters in the ad (Or at least half of them, the others are from Furthia High) are from Concessions. As we have discovered in previous discussions on this forum, Concessions = Unhappy Housepets! fans.
Does anyone see the ads before they're put up, or is it totally third party? Because every time you see a link with a Concessions character in it, warning lights should go off...

Also, should this not be moved to 'Not the Comic'?

Yes it should be moved. Where's a moderater when we need one. This place is usually swarming with them. (no offense)

I don't think your offending anyone who doesn't sorta have it coming anyway.
Anyway, if we keep using the word, censored or otherwise, we will be defeating our own purpose, so...

I get that, but the quality of what they sell is just.... wow

but if you you have to use the "f" word in order to get hits, please just go away

Sorry, for the doublepost, but only now I found what I searched.

Turns out, Imsy's infamous for such botch-ups.

Rick, if there's a possibility like this I would consider blocking Wimmelwimms' status as an advertiser, unless you want to get you and your work associated with, uh, threadbare things.

Maybe ignore it because it's not that big of a deal? Or better yet, just download an ad blocker like the entire rest of the internet.

I swear I haven't seen an ad on the internet in like three years.

Thing is, places don't get ad money sometimes if you do. Some adds are pay per click, but alot of them are also pay per view. I used to use noscript but don't feel a big need to.

You know you can unblock on site you regularly visit and you could only block annoying ads its what I do.

Because Rick is so awesome he gets free website hosting. Ad's are the commercials of the internet. Annoying but necessary unless you want to start paying to visit websites. Adblocker does nothing but make it harder for smaller websites to exist because they have no income.

I wasn't necessarily implying that you should block all ads (even though I do), but you can use a plugin like adblock to just block the ones you don't want to see.

That aside, though, I still don't get the big deal. Even if the ad is on the page, you aren't being forced to click it, and if a censored curse honestly offends you, then I don't even.

edit: I don't mean to be antagonistic (even if my posts always are, derp), really. I just kinda read through this thread and my only reaction was 'wow, who cares'.

i kind of agree with NoelL, i never look the ads anyways, so why's it such a big deal

p.s. NoelL: is that a Lucky Star avatar?
