Scientology ad

#1
Dear Arrse,

While reading Jumpin'Jarheads string on why he's a Christian (In the Intel Cell board) I noticed an ad at the bottom of the page.
This one was from the Scientology 'Church'. I don't mind ads; I like them, they're good for the site and that's good enough for me. But Scientology?

I'd appreciate it if you could make sure that no ads for organisations like Scientology; the Islamic Jihad; Al Qaeda and the Albanian Pyramid Game would be part of the Arrse site.

Thanks,


Kaye.

Why not exactly?

I find the notion that the World was created by aliens, and that we should follow the teachings of a science fiction writer just as palatable as the notion that the World was created by an invisible beardy man, and that we should follow the teachings of his immortal son.

Anyway Google chooses the ads not Arrse.

I think that the ads are picked up automatically by the software system depending on words found in the thread. As you have started a thread on Scientology see if you can guess what the ads will be… 8O

Besides, have a little more confidence in what you believe or don’t believe. I got to Scientology level 3 before being killed by a dragon and had to start again.

Pipe down will you, Smudge. I asked a reasonable question and do not expect plebs like you to open up like that.

By the way, Scientology isn't a religion at all. It's a pyramid game dressed up like one. You don't see the Cosa Nostra or Chinese Triads advertising, so why Hubbards fanclub? I prefer Heinlein anyway.

As for the other posters; thanks for your responses. I understand Google picks the ads and not the OC's. So a discussion on religion draws religious ads.

I think I might have to wait until I get home to touch that link :x but knowing Ravers taste it is bound to be a goodie.

Ads don't bother me at all some a are quite humorous, apart from the dating ones that keep popping up........ oh that is a different site :D

2. Said nutcase made lots of cash from it? - Check
3. Lots of totty involved? - Check. See: http://raelianews.org/news.php?extend.331

Best Advice EVER to Tiger Woods:
MONTREAL - French guru Claude Vorilhon, alias Rael, advised golf superstar Tiger Woods in an open letter on Thursday to divorce his wife and embrace multiple sexual partners.
"Adultery is not mental disease but a very normal behavior among both humans and animals," said the leader of the atheist Raelian Movement, whose followers believe life on earth was created by extra-terrestrials.
"I encourage you to explore what more and more people are calling 'polyamory,' which means loving many people simultaneously and with no jealousy," he said.
Alluding to Woods's televised apology last week for his extramarital dalliances, Vorilhon urged the golfer to "stop making his life a model of guilt, sadness and conformism to antiquated Judeo-Christian values."
This, he said, sets a bad example for the younger generation.



All that, plus Flying Saucers, and Orgies too. Pity it's led by a Frog, which sadly ruins it for me.

:D It's perfectly safe for most workplaces, unless of course you are employed by one of the five major religions of the World.
