Health and sanity issue

Why is google allowing rapidly flashing ads on the right side of my email.  They make me feel sick and are probably a major problem for anyone suffering with epilepsy. Please ban them before you do real damage to someone.   I for one will NEVER buy from any advertiser using these.

Hi Colin
Google doesn't allow these ads. As per the Image Ad policy here:

Strobing and flashing
Google doesn't allow strobing, flashing backgrounds, or otherwise distracting ads.

If you see them again, I would encourage you to report them under this policy. You can report using the URL here:

Hope that helps.
