Why am I getting banners for porn films in Movie Talk?

Just wondering...and hoping no one gets 'em while surfing at work.

Because it's nighttime.

Adult banners show up at night.

What about ads for DVDTalk reviews of "mature" movies? It's 5:26 EST and I was just in other(not the mature forum) and I was getting links to reviews of some Playboy Casting Call DVD. I don't read DVDTalk at all at work so I'm not too concerned but someone might have issues with this.

Same here. Except I view the forum 99% of the time at work and could really do without those porn review covers.

Limit them until nightime as well please.

Opinions may vary, but for my money, just because a DVD has naked women doesn't make it porn.

The script that rotates reviews works independently of Geoff's ad software. Adult reviews are excluded from that in the main forums, but since Geoff has that particular Playboy title marked as a regular DVD and not adult <small>(maybe an unpopular decision, but one I don't disagree with)</small>...I mean, the software doesn't say "exclude this title that's not adult until this time". A review is either in rotation or it's not.

I say keep them out of rotation then. They don't bother me personally, but I share an office with a female and I'm sure she wouldn't like to see that if I'm browsing the forum.

Maybe it will start an interesting dialogue which will lead to a fun thread later.

Unfortunately she's not attractive at all.

see: http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...hreadid=342133

What you seem to be referring to are not ads but graphical links to our reviews. The issue has been addressed so I'm closing this thread as well.

Thanks
Geoff
