Okay, is it just me or is someone else noticing all the scientology?

    On all my hubs and other's hubs I see Scientology banners.  I feel as if we are being inundated with scientology and now I'm saturated.  I can't take any more.  They are there when I close my eyes to sleep at night.  Can someone please tell Tom Cruise he's made his point and he can rather donate that scientology banner money now, to starving AIDS orphans in Africa.

      To remove the Scientology Ads enter the following link into your Adsense Competitive Ad Filter.

    I've added them to my Competitive Ad Filter.

    I keep reading about such adverts.  I haven't seen any ever on Hubpages, but maybe I have learnt to ignore such adverts.

    Jeez BB, all weekend, they been popping up and damn near blinding me.  Hahaha wasn't that a Howard Jones song?  Blinded by Science?

    I haven't seen any either. Or I haven't noticed.

    Maybe they're targeting the American audience?

    Pretty much every single advert I see is for scientology. Maybe they are targeting Greece - they have been banned here big_smile

    If there are any words of "emotion" in my hubs, which are quite few then there is a scientoloy ad.  I guess they are sending me a message.

      You could well be right - I have a few Hubs about science and religion. Bloody annoying, though - I think that I blocked the ads on my own Hubs, but have no control over what I see on others.

    I think we can start a S.H.I.T. group.  Scientology has invaded this.

    I am going to block it. I have them on my Why Sex is Important to Men hub. What is going on with the scientology ads? They don't pay us well and they are inundating Google. In addition, NOBODY wants to click on the darned things! Ugh!

      I think that if you look at some of the links that Darkside provided, it shows you how to block them from your adsense account smile

    Can you please send instructions how to block the dang thing - and will it affect any other ads on my hubs? I didn't mind one or two, three, even is not so bad, but they are everywhere - this is more like an infestation...

    I never sign out and only look at my Hubs if there's a comment on them, so I have no idea what gets advertised on them.  (How "professional" of me to be "so on top of these things"  smile  )

    Think I'll go look and see if there are Scientology ads - and then be none-too-pleased if there are.

    One of my major issues with the scientology ads (aside from the major obvious reasons), is that they sometime don't look like ads! Some of the ones I have seen look more like little graphic banners that I stuck on my page in support or something.

    Why? Because there is no "sponsored" or "ads by google" text anywhere on or below the ad. One time, I tried to right click to get the link address to block it, but the ad wasn't even clickable! That made it look even more so like a graphic that I'd put as my support of scientology or something. Don't want my readers thinking that! lol

    I don't have adsense and have those scientology things coming on my hubs, so I can't block it the way you explained!

    I'm still awash with scientology ads and videos, despite putting them in my competetive ad filter.

    Seems Old Father Hubbard's a force to be reckoned with neutral

    Or is it that bloody Cruise? *pffftttt*

    You can hide, but I can't seem to get away from these ads either....  They're invading my nightmares!  ahhhhhh
