I know that the Dope uses an ad service and doesn’t solicit the ads directly, but some of the in-thread advertisements seem to trend counter to the tone of the board itself. Specifically it’s the “Trending Offers and Articles” advertisement, which has “articles” like this for your perusal:
[li]Will this stock explode? Can you turn $1,000 into $100,000?[/li][li]Controversy over new skinny pill - is it too strong for store Shelves?..[/li][li]Look what Obama has planned for July 1st 2014. Even liberals are calling it a disaster. Story here[/li][li] Pastor Reveals a ‘Biblical Money Code’ - Turns $40,000 into $396,000 (Shocking)[/li][li]Women have been urged to cease posting these kinds of photos on social media.[/li][li]The secret to annuities with 8% guaranteed for life[/li][li]How Seniors Can Scoop Up Free $20,500 Checks (See If You Qualify)[/li][/ul]
Anyway, I’m sure monetization is an important factor in keeping the board running, but a lot of these links are borderline scams and really seem… I dunno - anti-Dopish?
