    Adverts on site

    I see the raunchy adverts are back again on Edugeek. Personally I don't mind looking at an attractive young lady but my boss might have other ideas

    99% of adverts in general are scams, might as well block them all

    Thats simply not true, the vast majority are fine tbh and I dont use adblock etc so I see them all on every site.

    I have added zoosk.com and gk2gk.com to the block list. I need the sites that are being pushed to filter them.

    Dating sites, although no ideal, you will NOT be sacked for a dating ad appearing etc, its simply not in your control thus not your fault.

    Should someone see them and say something to SLT is it worth all the hassle of getting it sorted?

    LOL it appears your ip must have had a lookup issue I guess.

    TBH at some point you would have to educate your SLT if they were that naive to the internet, if it takes something like that surely they having a clearer understanding of how the internet works would be in the interest of the school, what if another staff member had an ad issue on another site and got hauled up, they may not be able to explain the internet and ads as well as someone like you who does. That could be worse for the staff member then so avoiding uneducated slt is not much of a good idea generally.
    This all assumes said SLT were that uneducated as well...... I suppose they could also be the SLT that allows facebook which has FAR FAR worse adverts.....
