Over recent months there have been a number of comments about advertising on the PCA forum website.

I notice now that there is a rather 'forceful' advert appearing, that informs viewers " Congratulations! You are today's iPhone 4s winner!" " Click on the 'YES' button below, to try to win before time runs out". You have the option to click a YES or NO button!.

Note the words winner and try!.

My question.

Are these the sort of adverts PCA should support?.

Are these type of adverts, lowering the tone and purpose of this website?.

Oh joy.

from the T&C

From this moment on you have to decide on your own if you will continue to play for more points. By answering a question, you will receive a new messages containing a new puzzel/question also chargeable at £ 3,- per text message received. When you stop sending answers the game will end. O2 and Orange customers can only spend the maximum amount of £ 30.00 a day. This spending cap applies for one day, so the next day these customers are eligble to play again. The maximum amount you can spend on our Djummer service is £ 99.00.

I am on tesco mobile :-)

3.3 Costs can be charged for every message that is sent or received, depending on the type of message and/or payment method. The standard costs for sending SMSs (i.e. text messages) as indicated by the operators are applicable to all messages that are sent and received. A one-off registration charge may also apply. Once stopped you will receive one extra £3 reminder message.. To stop this message, simply text STOP to 84459.

This just a licence to print money.

I have just seen the banner ads for the first time, currently two on this page.

Deplorable advertising for a site and magazine of this supposed calibre.

Things must be bad if you have to stoop to that sort of gutter advertising.

I wonder if PCA has been high-jacked by a rouge web advert placement?

Perhaps they should have a health warning on the site

"This site contains flashing ads."

bit like the TV with

"This report contains flash photography"

Surprised we haven't seen a comment from PCA about this.

Defo isn't the sort of thing I would expect to see on this site
