Do the site admins have any say over what sort of content is in the ads? There are a few of them that seem a little on the not E10 side. Say, for example, help seducing women?

I don't want to get rid of the ads, as they're a way to generate revenue for the host, but since I browse at work, I don't exactly want to see some of these things.

Perhaps the server owner has some way to contact the ad service provider and filter them a little more strongly?

Granted, it's not that big of a deal. It doesn't offend me, but it may offend some parents.

We have no control over the ads since they are randomly generated ads that are displayed across the entire GameSpy network. We have tried before to get age inappropriate ads taken out of our rotation, since soccer moms actually HAVE written complaints to the Elite Four before about Maxim Hot 100 women ads and such, but that obviously did not work.

I figured that was the case. Too bad.

Hopefully they don't harass you guys too much. :/
