Ad placement?

gbu viagra 490

Well done, informative article announcing the conclusion that Assange will be extradited, face charges for alleged sex crimes.

Sponsor of page = viagra. Disgusting.

D.P.

I’m sorry you found this disgusting, but the Viagra ad was in a rotation with a number of others on the page.

Indeed, I had to click 10 times to duplicate what you described. It sounds unreasonable to devise a program blocking this ad from any story mentioning sex, and I’m not sure why we would want to do that, anyway: GBU

hmmm… I think the story was just a Trojan horse by Reuters to slip in the ad.
