TO BE PISSED OFF WITH ALL THE GIBBERISH ADS ON MUMSNET?

I dont know what is up with that advertiser running all these totally unintelligible ads. Practically everything is misspelt, "translated" word by word making the grammar topsy turvy and nonsensical, and with a few polish words thrown in for good measure. It looks so so professional? Makes me want to click? NO! If they cant even get language on their blooming banner ads right, how can I even begin to think they will be able to deal with my Greencard application??

Such a large amount of advertising money mis spent.

It is equivalent of:

Shoulds you jobs on top of USA?

Yes Nups

Got Grencardes?

Fill:
Suresnamen
Ofternaven

Klik her

or in differing versions
ON EVERY BLOOMING PAGE! angry

I thought the UK version was bad enough, I can't stand that Halifax one atm or the bingo (is it?) one.

It's because you're using foreign connection.

But yes, get an ad blocker. I was horrified when I got a new PC and hadn't set up my Kaspersky firewall etc [shudder]
