According to the UK Advertising Watchdog as they uphold a complaint against a BitMEX Bitcoin Promotion. I just can't believe that is the reason they put forward to defend their blatant suppression of bitcoin data.

the agency said that interpreting the graph would need some specialist knowledge of the topic and that, without an accompanying explanation, the graph “was unlikely to be familiar or readily understandable to the national newspaper audience to whom the ad was directed.”

How would a regular Joe possibly know what they are looking at? Without looking at the values on the Y axis you cannot possibly interpret the data of any graph. Of course it is perfectly OK to print a linear graph of Bitcoin's price action, even though that would actually be totally misleading.
