Adverts for stag do parties in Budapest with the image of a woman's leg in a high heel next to a pole?
I didn't click on it so it may be something completely different but I know what it looked like! I couldn't believe my eyes.

Hello all,

Thank you to those who reported this thread to us - and sorry that this has happened!

Does anyone have a link or screenshot to the ad? We'll look into it postehaste.

We're going to move this to Site Stuff in just a mo, as it's a site ishoo. It's generally better to post about this sort of thing there, as we check it regularly. And plus site ishoos should go in the site topic <anal>

<idly wonders what a hen do organised by MNers would be like>

We appreciate you patience, and will try to get this sorted asap!

Thank you for looking into this. Sorry screenshot is so poor.

PeteCampbell It was on my work laptop as well. [prays computer doesn't suddenly break resulting in it being handed into IT/all of my eBay links being discovered/me being sacked and possibly reported as a Grade A weirdo]

Hello. I think we've blocked that ad but do please tell us if you see it popping up anywhere again.

Thanks Helen.

On my adsense account I can block 500 domains, so could block all ads where the advertiser has linked to a specific domain. Expect Mumsnet has the same option (though with luck Google lets them block more than 500 domains if they need to, as they serve more ads than a small blog like mine).
