What in the World???

Asked by Cadence1971 Jan 01, 2013 at 08:18 PM about the 2009 Ford Escape Limited V6 AWD

Question type: General

Why did the Car Gurus team deem a headshot of me and my husband (see picture below) sitting on the couch as
"inappropriate?"

This is the language that was used in the email that was sent to me:

Editorial comment: Thanks for uploading, but your image description includes inappropriate language. Your image

What???!!?!?

Thanks, Jim. Yeah, I thought about the possibility that I wasn't supposed to mention the vehicle, but then, that is what I use the site for. I am buying a car from the site and I am selling a car on the site, so I am not sure what I should say. Is this site more of a social network site, like FB? Maybe I misunderstood, and should just stick to what I know (eBay and Autotrader.com). But, I still don't think the picture was inappropriate in any way. What a strange experience!!
