MNHQ -- I'm a bit concerned about the advert for Ricochet TV

There's an ad for 'Ricochet TV' on the teenagers board that looks very much indeed as if it is advertising a support service for parents having difficulty with their teenage children.

But in fact it is an ad for a company that makes reality tv progs like 'Cowboy Builders' -- presumably it is trawling for participants in a prog?

I don't think that a misleading ad like that is ok when people looking at it might have come to this part of mn with very difficult worries about their children. It really does look like an ad for an agency that is offering parenting support.

If you click on it, it just takes you to a random person's Facebook page.

I've noticed that the ad is different now and it makes it much much clearer that it is for a TV series. I don't know whether that is because of my post at all, but I really appreciate the change, and I really appreciate you looking into it. Thanks.
