Does this seem like it fits with the spirit/ ethos of mumsnet?
Some woman in her undies with the promise of miracle like weight loss by eating the emperors new clothes latest super fruit fad?

Or I could actually look at my thread title before I post! blush

Ad space

Is it definitely a mumsnet ad, or one of those that haunts you because of your cookies or whatever?

Its one of the stalker ones thats based on what you type. Or hat threads you click on.

I didn't know they could tell what threads you click on. That would explain the M&S ads.

Yep! I was just reading a thread last week (cant remember topic) but the ad at the top was specific to the thread title.

It's probably an AdChoice ad - you can usually tell by the little, blue, triangular arrow in the top right hand corner.

Hmmm I never click on nonsense like miracle weight loss stuff...

I'm on my iphone so need to go off and think how to clear cookies etc. confused

I still hate the ads on the mobile site, so probably more huffy than usual!

Well to my right is an ad inviting us to subscribe to the mumsnet YouTube channel.... Featuring a video about making 'boozy ice lollies!

Hi Suddengeekgirl,

Thanks for flagging this. As Fru said, it looks like it probably is an Ad Choice thing. Is the tell-tale triangle there?

We'll happily get it checked out by our Tech team if not.

I can't remember - I cropped the screen shot before I posted it here. confused
It doesn't look like there's any triangle in the corner from what I can see....
