    It seems like most of the advertisements that I've been getting on Yahoo Mail lately have been making claims that are obviously false. For instance, I keep getting an advertisement saying that Lakewood Church pastor Joel Osteen has resigned, when it's very obvious from watching his program and from checking for actual news about Mr. Osteen that he hasn't resigned. I can't see how allowing advertisements with obviously false information in them is a good strategy if your goal is to get more of those who use your site to click on the advertisements. If some of the advertisements that you display on your site make claims that are obviously false, people are going to stop trusting the advertisements on your site altogether and be much less inclined to click on them than they otherwise would, as I have with all of the false advertisements about Joel Osteen that I've been getting. Maybe if you were to choose against displaying advertisements with information that is obviously false, more people might click on the advertisements on your site.
