    Amazon finally rids Disney-related site of jockstrap ads - NetworkWorld, 6/27/07

    http://www.networkworld.com/community/?q=node/16888


    That result represented a dramatic turnaround from what Lutz had been told prior to his plight being aired in Buzzblog.

    "I felt that once you got this to Amazon's attention, they were sincere about fixing the problem," Lutz told me (more blushing). "But the hurdles that had to be overcome to get this to the folks in charge (especially in getting past the customer service reps) were awfully high."

    In retrospect, Lutz now believes his initial frustrations may have come as a result of a complaint that's common to service customers of all kinds.

    "A friend of mine who until last month used to work both locally and in India with call centers just smiled when I told him what was going on," Lutz said. "At his prompting, I asked Woody if my e-mails were answered abroad and he seemed to admit it."

    Of course, that alone wouldn't necessarily account for what Lutz saw as indifference to his situation.

    "My friend agreed the unfortunate combination of the words 'jockstrap' and 'Disney' should have set off alarm bells. But he noted that in a different culture they don't always comprehend the connections or understand the urgency. While we may share a language, we don't always share the same sensitivity."

    I'm still getting jockstrap ads on Micechat. I mean, I am as of 2 seconds ago.

    I'd suggest clearing your cache?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I have yet to see the ads. However, will contact him this afternoon to get this straightened out.

    Perhaps it something to do with "jockstrap" being mentioned with such frequency?

    Or maybe it has something to do with you pervs buying so many jockstraps through MiceChat! Amazon does show products that have been successful in the past!

    No jockstraps, all Madonna!
    Seriously we must have a die-hard Madonna fan on this board who's just suddenly remembered they don't own any Madonna albums and has just bought the whole set.
    It's all I see.

    Selling jockstraps is a lot more family friendly than "music" from someone who has made a career out of marketing her vagina.

    Mmmmhmmm. I'm not even getting Madonna ads, and I'm her target demographic!

    I'm still getting the jock straps though, and while I don't mind seeing hot men in undies, it is rather funny to see on here. It reminds me of when I was on my mother's emailing list and all of a sudden started receiving male nudes (that she sent to her friends). Like, eew, I don't want my mom sending me that!
