i find these ads offensive, because i run a site on myspace to help people with Eating Disorders and other things, i write blogs and post videos on this myspace. the people on this site are sometimes very fragile and even SEEING anything with a woman who they deem "skinnier" than they are will make them sink deeper into their dissorder. i find these offensive because people will and have gone to extremes to lose weight. and these ads, most of the time push them over the edge. or to try weight loss pills and end up OD'ing on them. or being admitted to the hospital, and i dont want to see them anymore.

We the undersigned would like to adress issues that we have been having with the ad's promoted on myspace.com, the dieting ads are very offensive to a lot of people and we would like them to be removed from the site. they can trigger people with eating disorders to become even worse than they were to begin with. We see these ads all over the place and we find them sickening. It makes us feel as if we are not good enough unless we are taking the product its advertising or unless we are as skinny as the women in these ad's. So only imagine how people with Eating disorders must feel when they see these types of ad's.
Please find a way to lessen these offensive ads on myspace.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
