Is anyone else seeing political advertisements on CC ?

It seems inappropriate.
I have one on the top, and one over on the left.
They say Salsa.Wiredforchange.com

I'm not seeing any, but if they want to buy ad space I don't see why they can't. Maybe it's a local thing? I don't know how the ad system works on here. I'd actually prefer to ignore a political ad on here than an ad for viagra icon_razz.gif

Those two are gone now, but there's a different one.

Perhaps I'll wait to come back to CC until after the election.
I'm very tired of being bombarded by lying politicians at every turn; I didn't think there would be anything on a cake site.

I saw them as well, and as a matter of fact the one I saw was actually for my state. I was sort of surprised to see an ad for him on this site. I would rather not see political ads on here, because ads are everywhere right now.

I haven't seen any of them.

I wouldn't avoid CC because of them. I don't think they really have control of all the ads that appear, though I could be wrong.

There is one right now at the top for my state. The ad chooser associated with those boxes know where you are from based on your server ID and makes them "pertinent" to the user. If you have an anonymizer on it is fun to see where your address is being bounced through.

I do agree, they are irritating but I doub't CC has much if any control over what is displayed in those boxes.

I started seeing them about a month ago. Very big brother-ish. Yuck.
