More Online Ad Nonsense. This Time: Google’s "Masterdebators" Ad

I checked my email in GMail web interface and had yet another silly ad pushed to me from yet another large company’s ad platform. This time it’s Google’s ad platform and not Facebook’s. Google shows ads above the list of emails in your inbox within their web-based interface.

Do Facebook and Google have anyone on their respective ad platform teams who police the adbefore their use in the system? At some point, Google and Facebook will likely face something more than criticism if they don’t do a better job making their ads family friendly. Personally, my skin isn’t that thin, but we do live in an world of lawsuits.
