Gumtree advert inappropriate..

Recommended Posts

One of the recent ads popping up is for Gumtree (not sure if you have that in the USA, but in the UK it's a little like ebay, but also has free stuff).

Anyhow, recently it was displaying ladies clothing (hey, I was looking for something for my wife!). The ad displays a montage of images. One image was a of a pair of ladies socks. The picture was taken from the back, showing the soles of the socks. The lady was kneeling down. The trouble is that the photo wasn't cropped as much as it should be: She wasn't wearing anything else... at all! :blink:. Not a problem for me, being a straight guy, but obviously the image is way out of order for AVSIM.:happy: (£10 for the socks apparently..)

I clicked on the little blue triangle in the top right for "Ad Choices". This took me to Criteo to give feedback, so I flagged it as inappropriate.

AVSIM needs ads, and obviously "proper" ones are of course allowed, but this seemingly innocuous ad contained more than it should. I'm not sure if you can do anything about this, but I'm letting you guys know anyhow.

Aren't you glad you weren't complaining about ads for short shorts for men.🤣
