I would ban the phrases;
"fluants her pins'
" shows off her washboard stomach'
"toned and tanned"
"shows off her baby bump"
"flaunts her figure"
"flaunts her cleavage"
"shows off her derriere"
"flashes her bikini figure'
...............................................and that's just todays!

Lately the Mail site is one big commercial blatant advert. They 'pay' celebs (either by money or guaranteed exposure, who knows?) to wear a dress/bikini/perfume/new face cream and then have a click link to an advert where the sheep-like British public can get the same items as the 'celebs'..
I was under the impression that it used to be clearly marked 'advertorial' but clearly there are no rules any more.,
It is known as monetising. People are going to the website for free and not paying for the paper so they have to earn their money somehow - the Mail Online is the most popular online newspaper in the world so has no problems getting advertising but they have taken it another step with this 'click to buy what we've shown' policy.
