Tired of seeing bikinis on DP

I'm talking about the "Sponsored from around the web" ads that are beneath every post.

Is there anyway to remove this? The other ads are non-offensive and even interesting generally.
If not, is there a way that the DP could minimize the display? Perhaps move it to a lower corner so I don't have to scroll past it every time? Seriously. Tired of telling the innocents that I'm NOT looking, LOL.

other people have posted these but

+1 bump for would rather not see the skin bait on the site. but since I've never had enough traffic on a site to need or merit ads, I don't know how much influence you have on ad providers. is it all or nothing? i dunno.

+1 for reminding me to log in so I don't see them. I usually only log in to comment, but I forget that removes the ads. (and to agree with another poster, I don't mind the non-skimpy ones)

Bikinis are getting to be

boring. How bout a little camel toe to spice things up? Maybe some moose knuckle also.

No. No moose knuckle please.

No. No moose knuckle please.

I am truly glad to see that there are people out there that

follow the bibles teachings. Coming to a website that is not based on Christianity though it doesn't make sense to me that the request to remove bikinis was made??
I would normally rail on "Christians" that allow their children to run around all summer half naked, and definitely support those that follow the true teachings of Christ, but cannot support the removal of all bikini's from sight for said people in all aspects of everyone else's lives to appease others.
One does have the option on the site to ignore the pictures, scrolling down the page until the photo is gone, but to request the owner of a non religious based site to make such a request is reaching.
Not sure what the answer is, but the total removal of all bikini's from the sights of others is not only impossible, but effects those that want to see bikini's. It would be like going to the blaze.com and requesting more bikini's, just doesn't make sense.

Question

Michael,
Are we supposed to click on those annoying ads so the DP gets more ad revenue or just try to ignore them?

LOL!

:D

I'll Trade You The Bikinis....

...for the GROTESQUE BULGING EYES that appeared in the last 24 hrs.

Horrific enough to shield my eyes and stop coming here.

Michael should have standards, and this turns away his customers.
So he should charge 100x more to THEM

Seriously! Gross me out. (puke)

[lol, to puke]

WHAT are they advertising? (if you know, don't look on account of me)

Not that they bother me at all

but I have never seen those. I guess it is my adblocker...

My Thoughts On This

I remember this thread from a while back. I think it's been covered that the ads are related to someone clicking on a link that had similar content (e.g. a woman in a bikini) and I think you mentioned you had a son who you were going to talk to about it (since you thought he was probably the one who viewed such content)

It occurs to me that if you talk to your son about that, he'll probably roll his eyes and think you're "out of touch" and resent you a little bit for that. So not sure if it's too late for that to potentially change how you approach him but just throwing that out there. On the positive side, maybe he'll figure out how invasive to his privacy the internet is and eventually he'll figure out how it can be used against him in other things (e.g. having it used to tax him for his behaviors). Maybe that will lead him to start liking Ron Paul. So there's that!

And I saw this thread, and these are some 4:20 thoughts...

Yeah, it sucks. Having to look at bikinis (and other irrelevant bullshit) on the Daily Paul, when your'e trying to get relevant info for free.

After all, this is the 21st Century. We're all 21st Century men now.

Soundtrack:

--- MUSICAL INTERLUDE ---

A penny in your pocket
Suitcase in your hand
They won't get you very far
Now you're a 21st century man.

Fly across the city
Rise above the land
You can do 'most anything
Now you're a 21st century man.

Though you ride on the wheels of tomorrow
You still wander the fields of your sorrow.

One day you're a hero
Next day you're a clown
There's nothing that is in between
Now you're a 21st century man.

You should be so happy
You should be so glad
So why are you so lonely
You 21st century man

You stepped out of a dream believing
Everything was gone
Return with what you've learned
They'll kiss the ground you walk upon.

Things ain't how you thought they were
Nothing have you planned
So pick up your penny and your suitcase
You're not a 21st century man.

Though you ride on the wheels of tomorrow
You still wander the fields of your sorrow
21st century man

--- END MUSICAL INTERLUDE ---

To sum up:

Bikinis on the Daily Paul pay for the Daily Paul being here.

He's the man.

Another

21st century song.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

I just noticed...

I just noticed that all the bikini ads have disappeared when I got a free download of AdFender. Damn !!!! and I don't know how to fix it. What will life be like without those ... ads (that was the word I was trying to think of, honestly)

RickStone

Oh no!

Those are targeted ads! What kind of sites have you been on!!!

B.S.

I do not look at smut or scantily dressed women. I am a 60 yr old woman. I hate all the bikini and boob ads.

Formerly rprevolutionist

but what about all the...

...beefcake ads with six pack abs?

LOL!

;-)

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Remove the bikinis

may have several interpretations.

I just notice the other day.....

when the better half ask me...'what are you looking at... then it hit... ther were boobs all up in that page.... then I ask myself.... Do I have to look at boobs on the DP...everyday???

Boobs? On the DP? Everyday?

Damn...I'm comin' back more often!

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

The bikini ad is the only one I LIKE.

Do you like the one with the sleeping guys face in a binding better?

Ad revenue keeps the DP

Ad revenue keeps the DP funded, so moving the ads in a spot where they would not be noticed would probably cause them to generate less revenue and possibly result in a funding issue for the site.

There is an option you might be interested in, though. Consider becoming a subscriber. You would both be helping to financially support the DP community and you would get the option to view the DP without advertising. Check it out at http://www.dailypaul.com/dp-subscribe

Or encourage ads for real goods and services

Rather than penny stocks, weight loss, celebrity gossip and cruises.

Big thumbs up to the Amazon book ads in the lower corner. That area showcases books that are of immediate interest to most of DP because they are chosen by the posters. The other ads that are specific to the DP are also low on the page. Why?

What is the real deal behind the "Sponsored from Around the Web" ads? What is being sold to whom?

I guess

those adds are why I have so much silver.Provident adds every where I go.APMEX adds every where I go.Its a conspiracy!

I love liberty like fresh cool air in my lungs.I love freedom like fresh cool water on my tongue.I love peace like the smooth skin of my sweet lady.And Dr.Ron Paul is the hero I believe will change the world.

That's not offensive. Ben Swann has offensive!

see woman on his donation page on bottom right
http://benswann.com/contribute/

that's really offensive!

Do you think that will bring him more money or less?

-------

FYI: Pretty sure Ben hasn't seen it or know it's there. Probably has no control other than to report it. But, tell him about it on camera and we may get a sheepish smile and pink face on video. ;)

You're funny.

I'm guessing you posted that to get clicks for Ben Swann?

You are obviously in tune with most of the readers who commented on this post.

less bikinis more skin or

less bikinis more skin or shorter skirts;)
