So I have turned off ads that fall into these categories:
- Cosmetic procedures and body modifications
- Dating
- Drugs and Supplements
- Get Rich Quick
- Weight Loss
- Gambling & Betting
- Rigntones and Downloadables (zero clicks ever, so why not)

Others are still activated including religion, politics, etc...so please let me know if you are seeing anything sensitive or any scantly clad women/men. Sorry it took so long to do this.

I'm seeing ads for MinnesotaForMarriage.com showing up. I mean, I'm all for causing them to waste money unnecessarily, but given the demographics of this site, I figure that should go away.

Appreciate that heads up - we are not willing to be a platform for that organization to spread what generally amounts to misinformation and thinly disguised hate speech.

All Ads linking to that website have been removed. If you continue to see similar ads, please bring it to my attention.

Thank you.

Any chance you could block the "IVMU" ads? I get them occasionally at work but not at home, probably because Google has a lot less data on my work IP and thus has less relevant things to show.

Done - let me know if you continue to see them. I blocked anything going to http://www.imvu.com/ and all subdomains.

Should have been blocked....I blocked all dating ads months ago. Please let me know what website it links to so I can block the URL specifically. I will follow up with Google Adsense about that ad.

Thanks

I'd prefer we don't have political advertising.

Been getting a lot of this advertising lately. Didn't look good on my lunch break at work.

Does anybody ever get the feeling there's like a whole secret sub-Internet of people who click those kinds of ads/1 weird old trick to lose belly fat ads/dancing grandmas who refinance their mortgages ads/other? Who does that appeal to? The people who give www.irs.com their Social Security numbers?

I suspect boomer women, who click anything that's jumping around. They thought hampsterdance was the best ever use of technology.
