    Google ads

    And I'm not talking about the 'get the facts' or the Scientology ones either.

    Someone sent me a link to a website that he wanted queried. The problem turned out to be the following Google ad:

    Considering this is on a website where some of the users are stressed-out teenagers, who would be more susceptible to cult shenanigans, it is a worrying to say the least.

    Two things spring to mind:

    1) How many ads does the cult have and what sites are they targeting.

    2) Is it time to think about petitioning google over this? Their advertising program is directly endangering peoples wellbeing by hosting this ads on such sites. the question is can we hit them in the only place where it hurts them - PRwise.

    Ideas?

    i think its perfectly reasonable to ask google to stop advertising for them, although they might not take it that seriously at first, we are gonna need something behind the protest to make them accept losing whatever revenue they are receiving from the cult

    Thread necro. Anyone else notice cult google ads are on the rise again? It did not take them long to take advantage of the new adword/google+ feature for interactive block ads:
