I sincerely hope that if it is going live you will refrain from using/allowing those somewhat 'insulting' ads; and I think this may be a spamming thread; though willing to be proved wrong

may i suggest you stay away from those pop-in ads; and keep the web site 'clean' so that people can read what they wish to without ditraction

I didn't see any "insulting" ads, what/where are they?

what is on there now is not what I saw earlier, and raised my suspisions about the site per se; and I did NOT take a screan shot of what I saw as I had no wish to remain there

Do you mean the ads at the top of the page? if so they change every time the page is refreshed , it also looks like the ads come from mogale-city co za/ , which may have something to do with the hosting/subsidising of this site.

The nearest thing ad wise that i saw which could be misconstrued as insulting was one from a web design company stating "you are an idiot" which was just an attention grabber.

The site looks nice in my books, i find the animated ads are somewhat distracting though for a front page.

Looking at the site, it looks like its news orientated. Regarding the poll on the left side, is it a guessy game. All I see is a question "what is the answer" and the numbers 1,2,3,4.
Although I have family members in Africa I dont really look at sites promoting it.
While looking at it I did notice that a lot of the items are date marked so I guess you will have to spend some time on it on a daily basis updating things.
Apart from that, having a callender on it is handy and it looks set up cleanly. I am not the best of judges of good sites but only say what appeals to me. This can be seen when you look at my site click here
Good luck

It might be better to hold fire on the inferences about 'insulting' ads and 'spamming thread' suggestions until you've had a proper chance to look.

The site looks fine to me so far, but in truth one can only judge a news-oriented site by its content when it's live.
