Believe it or not, one particular post on MTL Blog is worse than the rest. It’s the one with the snappy tittle of “British Girl Blows 24 Spanish Bros For Free Drink” and the tag line of “She was really thirsty.”
This is wrong on many levels and one of the reasons we started this site. Aside from the fact this is incredibly misogynistic and is degrading to women, the tag line “She was really thirsty” is even more disrespectful since they are making a joke out of it.” You can even see the comments from a MTL Blog contributor laughing about people who have issue with this post and their practices.
Another issue is this has nothing to do with Montreal. This is simply filler junk content, there is no rhyme or reason why it is there. There doesn’t even seem to be an SEO benefit for this, so why have it?
It hasn’t been removed from the site even though other people are complaining about it. So let’s take this opportunity to turn a negative into a positive and hit them where it hurts, their pockets.
Sites like this only exist to make money and rely on advertisers.
As of today, we found 4 advertisers on their site (2 seem to be private ads other are from google ad network.)
Piknicelectronik @ Piknic web site here in association with Moog @moogaudio web site here. I included the advertising tracking code for Piknic so it’s clear that their ad is on this site. In case the picture isn’t enough proof.
Zoofest also has a large banner ad above that you can reach the via twitter @zoofest or on their web site. They likely spent a chunk of change on the multi sided ad. Zoofest is a local Montreal Festival and although I’m sure they love publicity like any advertiser, we doubt they want to be associated with content like this.
Feel free to link to this exact page so they can see their ad. If the post comes down, that is a victory to all. If the post stays but the ads disappear then it is a step closer, either way this doesn’t work without multiple people taking to Twitter, Facebook and any other social media. Take the 10 seconds to send that tweet.
