  Dear man - rejoice ! Nutritional supplements tailored to men.
I just browsed the Giant Bomb while I happened to stumple upon this. I thought it was pretty funny since Jeff on multiple occations has expressed his distaste for dick pill ads. I guess they have less control over that stuff now with GS and all, but at least they have ads outside the USA so that's a start. Or more likely - they do have control but can't understand foreign ads. Ha ! Ha ! Or perhaps they cant give a shit about ads a week before E3. I don't care either way - I just found it pretty funny.

"Nutritional supplements tailored towards men" doesn't have to mean dick pills.

Dick nutrition is the only nutrition the internet knows.

Too bad they dropped the support guy who always responded immediately and made sure to block the ad on the server's side.

@AndrewB: I don't know about that, I see a lot of whey protein adds on the internet.

You're a yearly so you definitely shouldn't be seeing those

Man, I wish I could see those ads. How are you even seeing them, being gold and all?

@N7: His name was Daniel.

No, not Dave. There were other people behind the scenes like Ethan, but they didn't migrate to CBS Interactive when the WM split occurred.

I don't. Ads don't bug me.

I don't think that's GS's doing either.

Oh yeah, malware possibly?

All I can think of is that this thread got responses from big_jon and Droop. Both ends of the spectrum.

Ad blocker turned off on Giant Bomb, of course, and I was logged out.

I don't know who they are, but I got responses from this guy, which I was really happy about:

While his distaste for in-engine sleeve technology certainly pisses me off, I can only be pleased with the fact that he is top contributor on Grave of the Fireflies.

Wow, thanks for fixing the ads, Alexis. The gamespot logo is perhaps a little much but it's good to see some regular-ass ads, even if some of them are for old games. Like Ninja Gaiden 3, what the fuck is up with that? Here is a protip, Tecmo: the NG3 ship has already sailed and bombed long ago. Gigantic failure. While your external pressure certainly didn't help, Hayashi has proven just how little talent he has. Do not try to revive the franchise unless you go and get Itagaki back with a large sack of money.

I have it but like me, you should really turn that stuff off on sites you want to support and stop being so cynical. The more money Giant Bomb makes on their own, the less reason Gamespot has to interfere.

Never, this site has had some ads on display that really made me wonder what the fuck was going on. One of them was for roadkill t-shirts. Classy.

You gotta let them work out the kinks, man.
