MetaFilter ad links to Scientology site. [more inside]
So, I was all set to take the survey which is mentioned at AskMe (right-hand side, under the list tags/post block)
"MetaFilter Readers. Support this site and its advertisers by participating in a brief survey: questionmarket.com."Unfortunately, this is the result when clicking on the link: "The website you're looking for cannot be found. The website may no longer exist, or may have moved."
A long while ago, when there were Textads that people could purchase down the right hand side of the front page, somebody here had taken out an ad and had a wonderful site which would generate a picture of a graph based on the information available in The Hacker's Diet. The website is long gone now but I wonder if I could either get the code for the site or if somebody could direct me to something to generate a picture dynamically to put on my blog? The site in question was www.weighttrends.com or maybe just one "t" www.weightrends.com .
Matt, either I missed the official announcement that you're ending the Text Ads program or there wasn't one ... What up? Not a lot of interest or...?
"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.
So there's that Hello Kitty vibrator ad by nyxxxx, and now there's an ad saying he ripped Dean King off. I'd post the link to the page that the ad links to, but it apparently sends an email to nyxxxx every single time the page is reloaded. Am I the only one shaking my head at this? [more inside]

These guys are playing to a tough audience...
Not that I want to question Matt... and not that I want to seem like the cranky old fundamentalist complaining (and it be far from the truth), but there is a TextAd for a porn site, and I am just wondering about the appropriateness of that.
Is anyone else seeing problems with links on some text ads being a bit too long to fit the box? Screenshot is from MSIE 5.1.3 on Mac OS X.
TextAds don't click through on Konqueror 2.2.1 (KDE 2.2.2)

For those of us who have JS disabled, could you add the URI of textads to the title attribute? (I did mention this, but I think it got lost in the shuffle.)
