Link Exchange has Censored Another Conservative Banner!
Below is the Banner:
This banner was deemed "too offensive" for Link Exchange. Now wait a second - this is a banner advertising a site that helps children! I can't see how anyone, liberal or conservative, would think that this banner is unacceptable. Is the above banner more offensive than these banners?
Now, the person who submitted this banner runs a conservative web site. Hmmm....could this have anything to do with the banner being rejected?
Below is the e-mail that was sent to the webmaster of the site, indicating that the banner was rejected:

Thank you for submitting your banner to the LinkExchange advertising network. Although your web site is acceptable, we are not able to accept your banner into our network at this time (please be aware that full participation in the LinkExchange network is contingent upon banner submission and approval).
LinkExchange banners are displayed on a network of over 200,000 different web sites. In order to insure that each banner advertised is acceptable to that audience, we insist that all banners are generally acceptable to the vast majority of our network members.
For example, the banner must not contain curse words or inflammatory content. This includes slander towards indiduals, public figures or companies. Suggestive imagery such as women in lingerie/bathing suits is also unacceptable.
We would like to complete your application for membership as soon as possible. Please redesign your banner and resubmit it, so that we can begin advertising your web site.
If you are already an active member of the LinkExchange network, your old banner will continue to be advertised until a new one is processed.
If you have any questions or comments, please use the feedback form located at:
Thank you, LinkExchange Quality Assurance Team
