I Didn't like the advertisement suggesting that I might like to be 'turned on'. I felt it was unnesessary and lowering your standards.

I must have missed that one, but it's probably better to contact GR directly using the 'Help' link in the menu...staff only read this board when they have time,which doesn't seem to be often lately.

I am very sensitive to that sort of thing too. Not seen ad, but humour is very subjective and what one will find funny, others will find offensive. Rose suggests best way of complaining.

I have to say though in the 3 weeks I have been watching threads on community (is it only 3 weeks?) the level is very high (both from Genes and their customers). Very little smut, a bit of flirting, plenty of fluffiness (Colonel Eldrick, lottery winner, take note). Plenty of heated debate. A quicker response to the news that Sky, and about a week ahead of the Western Mail (llais y Sais). And lots and lots of nice people.

Oh, and me too :-D

Gwynne, Posting on the community boards is not the same as contacting GR direct,

To contact GR direct you need to send them a message using the "contact us" found in the help section at the top of the page

If you don't want to see adverts, download some ad blocking software.
