Maybe it's there to tell us we look awful, and that some of us should shave?

They're better than most. There's cleavage in them. Cleavage is good.

It's a chick in a swimsuit. Pretty hard to miss if you're male.

yeah that is the one I meant, and I wasn't complaining. I just found it rather odd because the ads are usually mac oriented and then yesterday all the ads were for that sex personals site.

Why? It's not like she's having sex in the banner. She's just looking at us in a bathing suit.

People need to lighten up - it's just skin, folks.

It's in bad taste, and kids who click on the link will probably encounter more than just cheesecake.

Kids could come across far worse on the internet.

Lighten.

It's my opinion. There's no need for you to act condescending.

I can't even see the ads but I agree on the point of cleavage being good.
