Why is there an ad for a "Sexy Ukraine Dating Site" on MN ? Are we supposed to believe...

that this is also for women to meet "Sexy Ukraine Men" ? Or is it an ill-disguised hook-up scenario ?

Please, MN, get this fucking dodgy knocking shop off your site.

I believe so. He is somewhat of a hero in such parts, isn't he ? Did he "sing" as they took the first bricks down ?

He recorded a song about tearing the wall down and has since been deluded convinced that Germany listened to The Hoff and decided to reunite.

Any sign of the Ukrainians, then?

Am on my phone now, so sadly the Ukrainians will have to wait until another day

To take a screenshot (if anyone else has a sighting of the sexy ukranian gentlemen):

A. On any version of Windows: hit the print screen (usually labelled PrtScrn or similar) button. On a separate keyboard this usually hangs out over on the right above the delete, home, and End buttons; on a laptop they might've hidden it somewhere odd. Then open whatever graphics program you have, Paint (as included with Windows) will do if you've got nothing else, and hit CTRL-V. That will paste the image into it and you can then save it and upload it to your MN profile in the normal manner.

B. Windows Vista and Windows 7 (possibly 8 as well but I don't have a PC with that so can't be sure) come with something called the 'snipping tool'. Find it by opening the start window and typing 'snipping tool' in the search window. This will bring up a small box with a few options, you don't need to do anything to it, just drag the mouse cursor around the bit you want to take a screenshot of. Once you've done that, again, you can save your selection and upload as usual.

Does that make sense?

I have a screenshot of the adchoices - seems only to be on active and threads i'm on - nothing dodgy on mine, but they change regularly - how do i get it to you?

I've just got a screenshot of the ad for singlemums.net. Do you want me to email it?

No, it's fine, thank you. We know which ad you mean. Thanks for flagging - we'll look into this.

Please don't worry. We know what you're talking about now - and we're on the case.

But please do shout if you see anything dodgy come up in the Adchoices space.

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Sat 01-Dec-12 11:23:39

SingleMums.Net is still there, that one isn't an AdChoices one. confused

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 01-Dec-12 19:38:34

Evening all.

Right. The Sexy Ukrainians are no more, I'm assured. shame

The SingleMums.Net ad was booked with us to run till the middle of the month, so we're going to honour that booking. But we do agree that they could be confused with a Mumsnet venture, and we do apologise to anyone who thought that SingleMums.Net was anything to do with us.

Helen, does that mean that sexy Ukrainians slipped through a loop hole?

That sounds rather oo er missus, Val. But yes, I believe so.

Valpollicella Sat 01-Dec-12 23:06:36

Ah the sexy loopy hole . Bad time MNHQ

YouBrokeMySmoulder Sun 02-Dec-12 00:06:18

A loop hole like star trek that enables two spocks to be the at once? Cool.

LineRunner Sun 02-Dec-12 00:12:21

Brian Cox has a sexy black hole waiting for him in my universe any time.

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Sun 02-Dec-12 00:22:31

Oh no I missed this. I fancy the idea of hooking up with some sexy Ukrainian men (in theory anyway, in reality I would run a mile).

Singlemums.net sounds lame.

MmeLindor Sun 02-Dec-12 01:18:39

Erm, Helen. I have just seen the Single Mums Net ad. Did you happen to notice that they have copied your logo? At first glance I thought it was a MN enterprise.

Yes we know and we're sorry for the confusion. It's absolutely not an MN enterprise!
