    Sparklebox Search Results

    Morning all,

    A teacher just searched for "WILF" on sparklebox, its a resource poster for "What I'm Looking For".

    Anyway, down the right hand side their were google ads for lonely housewives and MILF dating! I am guessing google picked up on WILF and thought I meant MILF!

    Do you think Sparklebox or the LEA should be told?

    I would say both just to make them aware. Sparklebox is a banned site in this area (YHGfL) there's another thread about it on here.

    Teachers here use Sparklebox, our filtering weeds out the unsuitable adverts at school and their permissions mean the toolbar can't be installed. I won't install it.

    I emailed sparklebox and they apologised and they would sort it out.

    The LEA said thanks and said we were one the few LEAs to allow it!
