Moderator - Questionable Ads

I have to question the wisdom and respectfulness of putting these ads (to the left of the page) on an SA board. I wonder if they are on the other mental health boards. I scrolled over to 'next ads' and got more of the same. To me they come across as insulting, disrespectful, insensitive. I know the moderators don't choose the ads but is there any way there can be some feedback provided to whoever does?

I'm assuming they are targeted - mental health ads on the mental health boards; probably baby ads on the parenting boards. I am objecting to the phrasing of the ads, for example the schizophrenia ad below.

Hi Lexie,

Those are google ads over which we (all of WebMD) has little control unless they're promoting something illegal, etc. They are not being generated by WebMD itself.

What, in particular, about the phrasing do you object to so I can include that when passing on your comments.
