Weird TextAd December 8, 2004 1:11 PM   Subscribe

"Nekkid Celebrities, updated daily" kinda caught my eye in a TextAd. I don't actually see anything in the TextAd policy this clearly violates, so maybe it's fine. I'm at work so I haven't clicked the link to check, but thought I'd mention it.

For the record, I don't really care. Hmm. I don't think there's any way to not come off as a prudish wannabe tattler at this point. I was just thinking of the children, is that so wrong?

For reference.

huh, I didn't think I approved that ad, I could have sworn I turned it down.

Yah, I knew about the Suicide Girls thing. This just sounded...cheesier, frankly.

But it does describe what it is, maybe it's fine. Again I have no issue and am all for anything that helps pay for the site. I just got a funny little twinge (heh) when I saw it on the front page and thought I'd ask.

From what I recall of my childhood, nekkid celebrities were pretty damn okay by me.

False advertising! They were all wearing clothes!

Not really a good ad in the boyzone discussion of things, btw.

So if this was "Nekkid pierced and tattooed Celebrities, updated daily" it wouldn't be a problem?

No, it's really the "updated daily" part that freaks me out.

Nekkid pierced and tattooed Celebrities

"Celebrities" is a bit generous, don't you think?

(sorry if SG actually does have celebs, I dont have a subscription, and it just seems like the appeal is actually that "girl next door" kind of thing, anyway)
