I'm not a prude, there are very very few things that offend me, and I do realize that Leah and the Mods all work their tails off to keep this site as awesome as it is.  I know some people get pissy because of the censorship and adult crafty content has to be linked to in order to keep this a family friendly website suitable for all people.  However, yesterday and today I came on to Craftster and in the side bar advertisements there were some pictures of people mostly naked (not in an artsy kind of way) for a sex/dating site.  I know that aside from becoming a friend of Craftster (which I will do the second finances get better) advertisements are needed to keep this site going.  I was just wondering if there was a way to contact Google to keep the advertising family friendly.

I'm sorry to bother you guys with this, but yesterday I just thought it was an accident or something, but today I had my neighbours son here, and I wasn't quite sure how to answer the four year old boy when he asked why the ladies had their boobies out.

Thank you so much for all the hard work you do.

Wow are you serious?
I have definitely never seen that!
Maybe next time you could take a screen cap of it?
I'm going to forward this onto Leah so she knows too.

The only thing I've seen remotely close to that were graphical silhouettes, and a couple in bathing suits.

Maybe we have to search for something with words that Google could plug as dirty words.  lol.  Or, in this case, something to do with dating.

FauxChina, what were you doing when they ads came up?  Hmm?  Just kidding!
