Disappointed.....Venomoid advertising

I am kind of disappointed in this site allowing De-Venomized.com to be allowed to advertise his site with a banner ad. I know Webslave doesn't answer to me or anyone else for that matter but I just wanted to express my disappointment after seeing De-Venomized's banner ad on this site.

Advertising is advertising.... Just because a majority may not agree with it does not mean they should be prohibited to promoting the growth of this site by paying advertisers fees.

(And not to worry, I'm one of the vast "majority" as well... lol)

I know and this is quite unfortunate.......there might even be legal issues not allowing him to advertise???? I am just a little disappointed.....that's all.

I think so too . People buy these snakes and have no idea how to care for them in captivity. A venomoid makes snakes that need expert care available to anyone with a check book.

Once I start applying my own person bias on allowing banner ads (or classified ads, for that matter), where do I stop? What criteria do I use to pick and choose which advertisers I consider "worthy" or "not worthy" of advertising here? Do I disallow competing websites? Do I disallow ads by people competing with my own reptile business? Do I block ads from people who may have a questionable reputation? Do I block advertising from people I just don't like personally? Once I put my foot on that slippery slope, where will I end up once I start sliding down the hill?

If 10 people think I should remove an ad, is that enough? Or should 20 be required? And what criteria should I use in choosing who can make that sort of decision? Run a poll for each and every advertiser?

Sorry, but no. I set up the FaunaAds site to be pretty much self service, and I intend on keeping it that way. Unless something is pretty much universally accepted as being offensive to the general public (porn sites, etc.) then I am not going to do anything at all about it.

And to be honest, I would prefer for the most part that people just make their own decisions about what they do or do not do. So if you see an ad that you find offensive, just don't click on it. If the advertiser is not getting any hits, they will soon quit the advertising anyway. If they do get the hits, well then, what is that telling you?

How the hell am I supposed to know whether they are getting "hits" or not?

The venomoid issue is a pretty big one but I know of a few other sites that will not allow this guy to advertise the mutilation of reptiles....

I understand it's YOUR site and you can't start judging folks that wish to advertise on YOUR site but all of your "should I disallow's" in your first paragraph are apples and oranges by comparison.

There are plenty of things I don't understand I guess this will just be another.

Oh well. This is your site.
