    People eyes mostly will just ignore the text banner.

    But not the bikini girls.

    Even those bikini girls have nothing to do with SEO.

    I called it mind manipulation.

    The bottom line is sex sells and it's a part of marketing. IMO it isn't a question of professionalism. Such methods transcend society in the form of ads in commercials, billboards, magazines, etc. by many major corporations. To deny such techniques would be to deny one of the oldest fundamental truths of marketing which is well within the realm of what this forum is about. Also, if your ad blocker isn't picking them up then right click the ad, copy the link to the image, and add the domain in the URL to your ad blocker's blacklist. However, I would disable the blocker for BHW when not in a place where it needs to be blocked in order to fully support the forum.

    If sex sells, then show direct sex, why show symbols like a seminude model or even the bikini? :) I don't think BHW has any adults below age 12 as members... And they all are experienced anyway. So why hold back? Show "linked" or "back linked" couples and that will be better than just one semi nude model promoting SEO back links.... :)

    Or let's see only back links SEO... in words if there are no symbols found for the phrase.

    Heh, I appreciate the joke but in all seriousness.. There's a clear line in media between showing sexual organs and showing people in skimpy attire. That line (In Western culture) is what separates what's suitable for a general audience and what's considered "Adult."

    Organs can be pixelated... Anyway it was just a suggestion, and anyway we allow only adults as members AFAIK :)

    I've seen posts by teenagers on here. Not that teenagers don't watch porn.

    A filter would be good as sometimes the content is not great on a work computer.
