Video ads and clickbait ads


Recommended Posts

Latest irrating ads are video ads. 

Second we are getting tons of clickbait ads for uncensored pictures. The regular ads are bad enough but those uncensored ads are not suitable for the site.

I have tried to report them by they keep coming back.

I’ve been getting some pretty degenerative/raunchy ads as well on this site, stuff like “Uncensored: 25 Photos of Grocery Shoppers Gone Wrong” or “How to (inappropriate) everyday at 65”, with suggestive photos attached to the titles. I’ve just been reporting them. What sucks the most is that children who visit the site are likely to be subjected to these ads.

I took another tour of the ads and blocked a bunch. What happens is that an advertiser miscategorizes their ad a not adult when it should be. I report them, but the same ads pop up again under a different company, and the review cycle starts all over again. Don't even get me started about ad fraud.

That sounds similar to SPAM and Robo calls we are fighting on our phones.  So much guano to deal with!
