By: Pearce Thu, 07 Sep 2006 12:47:12 +0000 On return from holiday I was horrified to see the developments to our silly stuf section. This was bad management on our part as too many people have had access to the content without proper direction. I have to take responsibility for this which I do. This matter has now been addressed. Mea Culpa. Apologies to anyone that may have been offended, that was certainly not our attention.

By: Brian O Connell Thu, 07 Sep 2006 11:59:40 +0000 I think its quite good, personally I cannot see what the problem is. I do object to people voluntarily appointing themselves as moral guardians. The authorities are there for that. Thats my opinion anyway.

My apologies but I just checked the page in question and they seem to have removed quite a lot of content.

Most especially they have removed the image that previously was positioned at the top of the page which was the one that most people found offensive.

I will spare you the detail but I do have a cached version of their site that I spidered when writting this piece.

Would you be happy for children to see that Simpsons image that was displayed at the top of the page?

TBH If your site is for the corprate market then it should be appropriate. I am all in favour of bringing laughter into business, but not at the expense of offending some of your customers.

I’m quite sure my mother wouldn’t want to see that Simpsons image and, considering she would be part of the demograhic many of those car dealers are targeting, I would have to consider that content inappropriate.

I wonder would all those nice Ford dealers share your views?

By: Worst Site of the week? - Page 3 - Irish SEO, Marketing & Webmaster Discussion Tue, 08 Aug 2006 19:51:11 +0000 [...] I have checked their site to see if it might have been hacked but to be honest it looks pretty much like they published this themselves. The link to that page is in the footer all over their site. Blog post already done If anyone cares to promote the post we can watch how this plays out.
