    No touch knockout advertisement on Bullshido

    I just logged into the website a couple minutes ago and immediately saw an advertisement that teaches you how to knock someone out without touching them. What the hell happened? This is the most ironic thing I've ever seen. Here's the website the ad was linked to. :XXbuzzsawhttp://www.streetwarriorsclub.com/notouch/
    I know I'm over reacting but it's just nuts how this ad ever made it onto the website.

    It is puzzling. Unless it's because the computers that tag and place those ads noticed that it was martial arts related and that this was a martial arts website. Then it wouldn't be puzzling. Or ironic.

    We have bad Karate ads, No Touch Ko ads, and on and on and on and on. No, you are not original in starting this thread nor are the other people who start them every few weeks.

    Yes, everyone finds the ads funny. Just use the new Google search function to see if it has already been discussed.

    To reiterate, because this thread might come up in a search for a future, similar situation.

    For the majority of the ads displayed here, the site is either selected by the advertiser directly, or because it showed up in a list of sites based on a keyword search. Other times, they're simply selected by the ad provider based on the keywords in the page.

    So in many cases, Bullshido was actually chosen specifically to run the ads. And since it would be a full-time job turning away idiots' money, it's not something that's exactly high on the priority list.

    However, when people have come directly to me to advertise a stupid or BS product, I've turned them down. The last was some ninja crap with the GI Joe character Snake Eyes as part of their logo, affiliated with Ashida Kim. I basically told the guy "uhh... you realize your organization has made (hilarious) threats on me and other people on my site, right? Probably not the best way to spend your money."
