Damnit. All I get are home depo ads and the Chive.

I know ads are to some extent based on browser history, cookies, and ad tracking site.

Do you have a thing for young Asian girls Beth?

... and who else uses the device (that might be swaying the ad results)?

In my opinion - it shouldn't be shown on a "family website" anyhow. Hopefully VS can take care of this (we'll point it out to them).

P.S. If anyone sees an ad for a Nice used flying saucer with low light years, please pass along the link... My current ride threw a gravity generator so I'm earth bound

I keep getting Victoria Secret ads on here, not as bad as Beth's ad but still an issue for a family site.

Yeah, this happened to me yesterday. Except it was much more graphic than Beth's. Also, now when I get on here it redirects immediately to the Apple App Store. Something is very wrong with this site. I spent an hour on the phone with Apple today, and still no resolution.

Bottomline, is this is not cool. This is a frog site, not porno or gaming site. I sure hope this can be addressed. Also, why is this happening to women from TX????

Thanks,
Lane, aka, SilverLynx

Couldn't agree more with all of you.

Wish there was something we could take care of.

You'll note that the "graphic" stuff didn't happen till the site was "handed off".

Guys/gals, apologies that you're seeing the ads. If you come across an ad that needs to be blocked, hover over it with your mouse and have a look at the link. Jot it down and PM it to me. I will block that particular link. We cannot just do a blanket block of ads because the ads served use multiple key word triggers (i.e. an ad about baseball may still appear if I block the word baseball because the advertisers on the network are serving it under different keywords).

I just got the Asian women ad! I took a screen shot picture with my IPhone and would be happy to email it to the appropriate person who can resolve this issue. It was not porno like what I saw on Monday, but this is really out of hand. I am sure that the porno that popped up on my IPad is illegal as any child could have seen it. PLEASE address this issue!

Thanks,
Lane, aka, SilverLynx

The ad was on my MAC, not IPad.

Please do this - it's going to be the only way to shut these ads out.

Although it would seem that whatever Ad Service is propagating might be able to help as well (I'd hope)?

Adblock Plus is another way of stopping the ads. The add-on can be installed in your browser and in your smartphone.

When you ad block, you block the sponsors. Driving the related business out.

That is correct. Unfortunately, it is a better alternative to having porn pop up on your family computer. It can be a temporary solution for people who are being offended by the unwanted ads until the administrators figure out a permanent solution.

If you use an ad blocker, the sponsors of this website can still be seen on this page: Dendroboard.com - Sponsors (also on the Site Navigation panel on the left hand side).

If more people were using ad blockers, the site owners might be more motivated.
