If you ever see an adult 18+ advertisement on dotTech please post here so I can block it. Just give me the URL of it.

Thanks!

I am not cerain what you mean.

Do you mean an advertisement that was published prior to 1992? It would be 18 this year (if my math is correct).

Probably you mean a “naughty” ad (so indefinable! Does the glimpse of a tittie offend, or is it ‘country matters’, as Hamlet put it?)

No matter.

I’m offended by your request.

Though the Intranet may have been inclined to censorship, the Internet and the WorldWideWeb were, from the beginning, dedicated to the principle of _laissez-faire_, “let them do”.

The XIth Commandment ought to be “Thou shalt not stop thy sibling’s mouth.”

We have been seeing recently a quarrel over net freedom, between google and China. It is about politics, not sex: but it is the same worm, the Worm of SelfRighteousness, that is gnawing-away at Freedom.

So I will not ease the Worm’s chewing by telling you whether or not I have seen a naughty ad on dotTechhnologicians.

And I say so though I’m probably your oldest fan (born 1937), and I recently tossed a couple of sawbucks into your begging bowl, and told you lately that I love you.

Sure, no problem.
Although sometimes I like porn :oops:, but seeing porn/adult ads that could be seen by children who want to learn how to deal with computers is something I really do not like :yell:.

@jivadas

What kind of answer to a polite request is that? If you enjoy the blog you should be happy to help make it better, not tear down the host for making a simple and reasonable request.

@Ashraf

I haven’t noticed any “18+” adds as you put it, but I’ll let you know if I do.

Any comments? Questions? Outbursts?

How could there have been 18+ ads on dotTech? Doesn’t Mr. Boss have to moderate all the advertisements before they are put on dotTech? Confused

@Adrian: No, I don’t. I can block specific ads after I see them or block specific ad categories, but I don’t get to moderate each ad before it is put up (Google is working on allowing us to do that).

 Yeah, understood. BTW, how much do you earn for the Google ads?

Is this counted as an adult advert? Yell

The link is: hxxp://www.hongkongcupid.com/ but this ad (I’ve seen it before) has a lot of variations for different countries. In the US you would probably never see this link. There is a list of sites that are related at the bottom of the link above, so you could block them all.

Dear Boss

I am about to ask a question why to repeat old posts without your observation, in between this topic emerged.

AS  jayesstee reffered the link is in such a language   we will never expect in   dot .tech.

just have a look your self. And decide what is the use of digging into old news without observation.

Might be nice, but not suitable!  Surprised
p.s. I put the 'dot' in the link because when I didn't, the link took me to: http://dottech dot org/freeware-reviews/21818/whats-new-in-internet-explorer-9-faster-better-more-competent/comment-page-2/#comment-353858
Srange ?
