Actually, I'm not sure it would. Before the new owners took over, Joe never allowed advertising by breeders of any kind--even though it tends to slip by in a sly way. LOL!

I thought there is no advertising from breeders on SM at all so therefore all ads pertaining to breeding should

Oops, guess I should have kept reading before I responded to that post. Sorry, but that was my understanding, as well, Brit.

ok, so lets get this on track, we are not debating who is or who isnt a reputable breeder in this forum, lets use this forum to post links we know are byb/puppymills first and foremost, so that they can be removed immediately, the public spoke and VS has responded, and to take it a step further VS has honored our no animal sales policy and will delete those ads also

the above combined with them switching back to image only ads, just as I ran them, will almost eliminate any byb/puppymill from being advertised here at SM, which is absolutely awesome, I applaud VS for their stance

does this mean a byb/pm ad will never show here, no, but it will now be a very slim chance and we have an avenue to have it exploited and deleted and Yung will work hard for all of you to make it happen, my life is a little crazy now but trust me, I am still committed to making SM the best it can be, thanks to Sher and Yung for putting their heads together and bringing this plan to action, and thank all of you for your patience as it was worked out

Yung and I have "met" and decided on the following rule as it applies to which banner ads are acceptable and which ones are not.

Since the advertisement of animal sales is not allowed on SM, it will also not be allowed on the banner ads.

This includes all ads, no matter what type of breeder they are from. Another reason for this is that we do not want to

get in to a situation of deciding (arguing) who is and who isn't a reputable breeder. This will not be the point.

It doesn't matter how well known or reputable the breeder is. No ads for animals can be displayed directly on SM

nor can they be displayed indirectly through Google ads.

All banner advertisements related to the sale of animals should be reported.

Sher, Joe, and Yung,

You are too cool for school. Yep, report them all. Hey, I call it, as I "see" it.

All my love, LBB

Oh, and mom is the one who told me. Yep, she said, "NO SALES ALLOWED"!! She did, you guys, she raised her voice to ME!!!

I just rolled my "eyes", and said, "whatever, lady. I did notice you have put a price tag on me!! Yes, mom, I'm aware of the the $2000 tag"

Deb: You nut case. The $2000 tag, is what I've offered to PAY SOMEONE TO TAKE YOU!!!
