Next up... gambling sites?
The porn industry has hit back at Google after its decision to ban smutty sites from using its main advertising platform. The search engine's new policy on porn came into force last week and effectively bans any grumble movie makers from promoting their sites using Adwords, a service which puts paid-for advertising next to …
Ah they're not anti-sex as such, just anti any sort that's done outside the married, heterosexual, missionary position (no funny stuff) only bed. There have been total anti-sex religious movements in the past such as the Shakers, but these tend to be a little self-limiting and have a noticeably short shelf-life.

Shakers eyyy. Is that what they call them in your part of the world?
I have always wondered what vegans did when performing oral sex!
Well, let's think
Naked woman, no problem, can be a nice sight depending on who.
Naked man - yuk
Other mens todgers, no thanks.
Since porn seem to involve todgers I am not a fan of it, doesn't mean I hate sex. Erotica can be pretty good, watching other people bonking is well off putting and boring. I can think of much better things to see, like for example my wife.
Basically porn is a spectator thing, I prefer participation.
> How about this?
Given the number of porn workers, what's remarkable is the *low* number of people infected and the measures that the industry itself is willing to take to deal with the problem.
Now compare that with the rising number of young people who have not got the Safer Sex message and have contracted STDs...
I'd taken a look at this some weeks ago after being surprised to see a viagra sales link on an NHS page. A quick search with [site:nhs.uk paypal viagra] suggests that despite the NHS saying Google had been working with them on the problem of hacking by internet pharmaceutical vendors the dodgy dealers are still in there.
Can we please block cig ads, alchohol ads, political ads(I don't enjoy being bombarded by the same dodgy politicos I try and ignore in real life while watching youtube), dodgy weight loss ads, the stupidity that youtube ads are where you are listening to a song and in pops an ad that is... a FULL length song from a diff youtube channel...
I don't mind fags and booze being advertised half as much as I despise the number of gambling adverts everywhere. There is a massive advertising drive that's normalising the behaviour. Hell: even the Wonga Loans ad references the fact that the wife is getting the loan to buy a new bed because "they scored a goal, didn't they". Great: Hubby loses a bundle down the bookies so wife takes out a short-term loan.
Ok. Fair enough, it's Google's choice who they allow to use Adwords, after all, it's their service, and we don't automatically have a right to any privately owned service or company.
Bearing in mind this new, apparently moral based stance on who they serve ads to, I take it we can look forward to them refusing to serve ads to weapon manufacturers, tobacco companies, alcohol companies as well as any other industry that has some links with killing people?
