stupid language

from an article in the washington post: “federal regulators accused seven companies wednesday of hiring others to send illegal e-mails with pornographic messages to tempt consumers to visit adult Internet sites. ”

“tempt consumers to visit adult internet sites”? i wonder why they avoided all forms of the word advertise. i guess they needed to sex up the language a bit to make it seem seamier.

i eagerly await the announcement that the ftc has cracked down on the mortgage spammers. i wonder if they will be accused of tempting consumers to visit online mortgage sites.
