    You said to take a screen shot of the porn-like ad, and that would help you get rid of it? I hate to post these pics, as it seems like it's just bringing more attention to them, but if it helps, here they are. (There were more and they were a little worse, but Im not really good at this whole screen shot thing. I accidentally deleted them.)

      I've never seen those. My understanding is that advertisements that appear on a browser are based on search engine requests of that particular TCP/IP.

      Has anyone been searching porn on that computer?

        Normally I would make a joke, but as of late, it seems to be best to avoid it.

      Beth,

      We did some research and it looks like AdSense and AdX both plan to launch a new category (nudity/exposed skin) of ads to block this week.

      When this is available the next couple of days, we will be able to block all ads in that category.

      In the meantime to address these ads, we need the click strings for each campaign and unfortunately this can be rather difficult to track down for any one particular ad.

      So a long-term solution is in the works to address these sort of ads.

    I can't tell from the images, but what is it advertising?  Are they lingerie ads, bathing suits?   Were they on your profile?

      No, they are on a lot of hubber's profiles and they used to be at the bottom of the forum threads, though I haven't seen those since HP's did something to block them.
      It is for some kind of game. The ad is moving and very sexual making it very uncomfortable to sit next to your kids on the couch if you're not very careful, they get an eye full.

      I forgot the name of the game. I'm sure others remember it though.

        "League of Angels":"Battle Forces of Evil". I could not take a screenshot. I saw it pop up in several places (even my profile page) but it kept disappearing almost immediately.

          Hopefully this helps.

            I am sure that it will because I tried writing a letter and included a link from the ad. I was told to send the screenshot.

    Yes League of Angels is what came up on my profile but I haven't seen it lately.  Will keep my eyes open.

      Thanks, they asked us to take screen shots and post them. I don't understand how/why they need it, but they said it helps them identify it? Anyway...

    League of Angels is advertising everywhere.  I just blocked them from my personal adsense account.  I am not prude but that ad is tacky and ugly.

      I saw it on the Weather Channel before, and clicked on the 'X'. It disappeared and never came back. When it reappeared here it did not have the 'X'.

    Think the ads appear mostly based on the webpages history on your local machine ? I never saw those ads coming up for me smile

      Ads also appear based on keywords from content.

    I saw them on a blog about being a good Christian mother. They are all over the internet. What happened to the ads going along with what you are writing about? In the "good ole days" that its what  Google wanted to appear.
