"Dog Training Resources by eHow."   On a Facebook page for dog training, a commenter seems slightly unclear as to who is responsible for posting or deleting scam ads, and who is responsible for the right-hand-column ads.

Please delete the Work at Home ads below. They should be in the right hand column as ads that need to be paid for. I don’t believe them.

Not a blog, obviously, and certainly the field of Facebook mistakes is amply covered, but I love how subtle this one is. The user’s scam filters have been triggered by the Work At Home ads — which is great. However, she doesn’t seem to realize that it’s within her own power to flag them; she seems to be making the request of the page administrators, who she also believes have the power to move them into the right-hand-column ads instead. Fascinating! People’s schemas of online ads.
