Here at FastDay we stand against the diet industry, encouraging people to find ways to help themselves with our support, not by selling meal replacements, magical pills or surgery!
We've done our best to block diet ads from the Google ad system but apparently some are still getting through. We've specifically blocked ads for the big diet companies as well as the dieting & weight loss category on the ad filters. I've just been through the filters some more and found some other sneaky categories they'd been hiding diet ads and have disabled those too. Hopefully that will help!
We totally agree that these are not the sort of ads we want to see here on FastDay and with a little help from you we hope to get rid of them.
I was just chatting with @fast_jason and he spotted an ad from a company called Fussy Eaters which didn't seem appropriate. Bam! Whacked them with my ban-stick as quick as I could
So, if you see an ad which really isn't appropriate to the site please do let us know. It would be most helpful to know the site the ad was promoting so we can block all ads for that domain but also it's useful if you can send us a screenshot (or post it here on the forum) so we can get rid of it as quick as we can.
We've also had some discussions about the number of ads and have decided to scrap the text ads along the top of the site to tidy things up. This will be sorted ASAP although please do bear with us as it's a long weekend and with how busy this week has been I think we all need a bit of a break
Thanks for all your help and patience. We'll get there!
