    Just came to report that "I Will Not Comply" ad

    It's straight-up fascism

    Not a complaint, but I have a google ad for my local diner, complete with google map view as the background for the ad pointing it out.

    It seems a little strange.

    The dude has clearly stated on record multiple times that he is trying to ban "assault weapons" (a nebulous, made up term), if you think it's propaganda than you're really not paying attention.

    That said, political ads in general are pretty cringe.

    So I am getting ads now on all my browsers, despite being signed in to patreon and doing the allow access thing.

    A thing I am paying for is broken... can we please figure out a way to fix it? I don't want to install an ad blocker for this site.

    I'll forward this on to our tech folks, we just had to fiddle with the settings to get them to show up for anyone and I'm guessing a wire got crossed, so to speak.

    Unfortunately, it is a holiday weekend, so we won't be able to address this until Tuesday.

    Well, our tech person is on vacation, so it might still be a few days, unfortunately. I feel pretty confident he'll be able to work this out pretty quickly once he's available, however

    Huh. This looks an awful lot like that porn that we used to get a bunch of. I wonder if---YEEEP, THAT'S HARDCORE PORN.

    Also, does The Empire Strips Back count? It's a burlesque show that's not really porn, but certainly suggestive. Been getting a lot of ads for that lately (showing locally)

    I'll forward that along. We've got a lot more control over ads we can switch off, now

    That one trashy half-naked lady clickbait site is also back.

    Dunno the admin stance on AI content farm ads, but given the amount of damage these things have done to the internet in the last few months I wanted to at least question it.

    Firefox/desktop/Nova Scotia if the location/device data matters.

    I don't remember seeing these before, but there's certainly a theme going on. Got these two within 5 minutes of each other.

    One of the ones from June started repeating, also a few others that are questionable:
    This one's been showing up with a couple of different website names.

    This stuff again. Which seems just generic trashy, but it's an animated thing that is constantly pulsing... THROBBING even, in and out on the wedgie.

    The recent popcornews ads have started appearing with the url for “globaltinynews” instead

    It's not the typical level of objectionable, but I am getting a lot of Temu ads, and they were just involved in a class action alleging that they illegally scraped the phones of users of their mobile ap.

    We’re getting ads for white nationalist hatespeech sites

    Also this greeting card company that pops up has a lot of misogynist stuff, too
