Post subject: Misleading message ad in new ad banner

Ok so we have a new advertising format..
...that's ok as the site has to raise money somehow for it to run without making a loss and to keep it free for all users
HOWEVER of the adverts shows the following message:

You've Got 1 Message ..Open message Now

This makes it appear as if it is a message from my own website. It is for an expensive pay subscription quiz competition and since quite a few children and under 18's use my website (mine is a sports club website) I feel they may be mislead into signing up for a service they cannot afford. Children and youths are unlikely to understand the legal and financial obligations of such a service.

By all means please have regular adverts for products but these sorts of mobile text services are an expensive trap for the unwary.
