I have a hub about a special moment I shared with my father many years ago. I just finished editing it and found that a Google ad with a fat women (a really fat women) in a bikini, holding up a fish was placed on the page. What the heck kind of ad is that? I unchecked the box that says that the hub should be considered commercial and the add disappeared. Doesn't Google screen their ads?
I think you missed the whole point of that ad
It was meant to be taken from the fish's perspective... not the Fat girl's... If asked; I think you would find that the fish felt the same way as you did.... and didn't appreciate the fat girl either!
If you log into you google adsense account, you can filter those ads and anything like it. You can also pick specific ads to only show on your hubs if you chose to do so. Its not that hard to do, I'm an adsense noob and I did it.
I have a blog about lounge music, and all my ads were for Sears Chaise Lounge chairs !?!?!
So I logged into my adsense account and made it so Sears ads do not appear on my blog and I also filtered out anything that had to do with " Lounge Chairs "

If you have a standard Hub that gets Amazon sales once in a while, keep the Amazon modules and get those 10% sales. Those Hubs have lots of Google history and I still get sales on them. A hat Hub just got two fifty in...
