    banning ads for loans with an APR of 36% or higher

    Wonder if they're going to ban all institutions that charge over that, or just all of them except the banks with their 1000%+ APR's on their overdrafts.

    I wonder if Google are going to donate some of their profits from advertising theses despicable products in the first place, to charity's which are helping to get out people out of debt from these money bloodsucking sharks.
