I spotted some controversy breaking out on twitter. It seems that sleazebaY is haphazardly placing various sponsors’ ads in porn or porn related auction item listings. The companies who’s ads were placed in the porn listings include Target, Verizon Fios, Capital One, and even Disney.

The listings seem to have been pulled (along with the advertisements therein) but I’m pretty sure they weren’t even in the adult section. The one you see here was the tamest of them all.  You can see the other ones shown have the theme of gang rape and violence.

It looks as if the person has been able to catch the attention of some of the companies. Which is a good thing.

Ebay has no regard for their users, nor for their advertising sponsors.

(Who’s ads really have no justifiable place in the sellers’ listings to begin with btw)

Individuals, advertisers, and yes, even investors with a moral compass don’t conduct business with ebaY. This is just one tiny reason why.
