    For these ads, we don't need all the same details as with rogue ads that violate the site policies.

    We need the following information for ads that are unattractive or tasteless, but that do not violate the policies

    1. A screenshot of the ad (you can find instructions here http://www.take-a-screenshot.org/)

    2. The clickthrough URL (i.e., the site one would go to if you click the ad).

    If you can find the click string info like with rogue ads that would be great, but it isn't necessary.

    NOTE: For Google ads
    For Google ads, if you right-click the ad and select "copy link address" you can find the clickstring.

    You can then share that URL with us to help identify problematic ads.
    This same method does not work for Glam or other ad partners.

    Once they get the URL, you can then block it in your AdSense accounts, and we can do the same.

    We also maintain a list of blocked domains here that you can block in your account: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/127826

    If you need to report a rogue ad that violates the site polices, please see this forum thread.
