I think people have known this for a while.

And what is up with Danwei featuring a mail order bride banner ad ? LOL. I mean I understand they pay the bills, but really...

The ads are served by an outside provider, Tom. If you send us a URL or a screenshot of an offensive ad, we can ad it to a blacklist (there are a number of bride/escort services there already), but other than that we don't have any control over what ads show on Danwei.
