    There is a BaptistBoard ad for the Restored Church of God (Mormon).

    Perhaps the administration can adjust the ad selection to remove the problem.

    The ads are generated by Google and I don't think the board has any control over what shows up and it's usually based on your own computer searches and websites you've gone to. Have you recently done any searches on Mormonism?

    You can also get an ad block plug-in for your browser. I don't have any ads on BB at all.

    I know.
    I'm at work [slow day in the lab] and I can't activate any blocking programs on this computer.

    Ads can be denied, it's been done in the past.

    I thought that it would be in the boards interests to limit the Latter Day Saint's witness among those that visit the site.

    I saw the ad just now.

    The Restored Church of God is not Mormon, it's a Church of God Herbert Armstrong schism group.

    [The Reorganized Latter Day Saints renamed themselves the "Community of Christ" over a decade ago]
