    "Homework writing" service ad

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Naomasa298, Feb 12, 2020.

    I just saw a homework writing service ad on the forum, in the top-right widget.

    Probably something that shouldn't appear on a forum like this. Not sure if there's anything you can do about it, but thought you should know. A writer's forum shouldn't really be advertising academic dishonesty.

    its probably a google ad - if you see it again get a screenshot and we'll see if we can do anything about it (we mods are all in the supporter user group so we don't see the adverts)

    Doing that requires access to the adsense account.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    We aren't directly in charge of what ads are displayed, but if you report a specific ad like this we can block that specific advertiser. I've done so in this instance.

    To be honest, I'm surprised Google allows them at all.

    I 100% agree on blocking these types of ads, please feel free to report others if you see them.

    I've seen two more since then. I'm afraid this is going to be a game of whack-a-mole, they'll pop up as fast as you can put 'em down.

    Do you still want me to report them?
