Hi all,
Would like to bring attention to you all, that the star online has some very inappropiate ad on its site. Just go to the Bring It To BIG BRO section under the YOUTH. Talking about a so called family newspaper here. I sure would not want my children to stumble upon it.
Not to mentioned they have some achohol ad on the main site too something.

Some of the ad I saw. (the ads changes each time you enter the sites so may have to try a couple of times)

1. How to get a girlfriend - Sexual technique to get all the girls you ever dream off (something like that)

2. How to get your Ex back - Powerful spell to get your ex boyfriend back (something like that) and etc etc

They are prying on the mentality of our curious children here. I admit these things are pretty mild compare to all the other nasty stuffs available on the internet but to have these ad in a column specifically for 12 - 20 years old children/teenager who write in about all their heartbreak and love problems is just totally unacceptable.

Numerous phone calls to the Star Online remain unanswered. (Not to mention the receptionist were pretty impolite)

What can we do about this issue?

I suggest you write a complaint letter to the Editor-in-chief.
