Inappropriate ?

Recommended Posts

Seeds for Africa

I had a CW alert last night about an advert that I have.

 

This is the advert in question :

 

Seeds & Bulbs - Porno!!! This gets crazier!!! Threesome!!! Yellow, Red and UBER RARE Orange Chilli Willies, Pepper for sale in Cape Town (ID:38981813)

 

The CW alert was : Heading is inappropriate for general section - should be moved to adult or the buyer should change the heading. If not, I won't be visiting BoB as I use a PC in a living space shared with my young children.

I have been advertising this product in a similar manner for the last 3 months. Its meant to be tongue in cheek humour and as for the name Chilli Willy - Well, thats what its called, not something I made up!

 

Some feedback from other users would be appreciated. The last thing I want is to offend buyers. I am also loathe to move it to the adult section, as i am sorry I really dont believe it belongs there.

 

Some constructive feedback would be wlcomed!

 

Thanks

I think the problem here is your use of the word 'Porno', it implies a lot. Other than that I personally have not problem with the whole add. Never seen a 'Chilli Willi' before (at least one growing out of the ground)LOL.:amuse:

Must be a very narrow-minded person who reported you about your chilli ad. Does this world really have people who cannot see a joke where it is intended?

 

If the word "porno" is the offensive word just delete it and save some person (who can peep through a keyhole with both eyes at the same time!) from a heart attack!

Thanks Lily and Kyle. I will change it to Naughty!!!

 

Okay I have changed it to Rude. Have left the body of the advert the same as if they open the advert, they can hardly complain, as they are clearly intrigued!

This is very narrow-minded, there is nothing rude or offensive at all. Even the word porno should not be a problem. If the children are old enough to understand what porno is, there is nothing they would see that could be upsetting in the ad.

 

My goodness, keeping children cocooned is going to cause huge shocks as they grow and escape into the real world.

I really don't see anyting wrong with the "naughty chilli willies" In fact, I am on my way to buy some as soon as Vodacom gives my cellphone signal back.

Narrow minded people must get a LIFE.

Variety is the spice of life! Let's all agree to l-i-v-e (in capital letters, bold, underlined and the biggest font possible!)

 

If we could all laugh a lot more the world would become such a happier place.

For some of us, the 'aroma' is all we can savour.......

this narrow minded person must lead a very boring life, shame poor kids probably have sit around in their best outfits all day, and not allowed to get their hands dirty, by playing outside et.

at least Kyle you have an imagination and good sense of humour.

nothing wrong with your spicy listing.:amuse:
