    Advertisements for concealed carry paraphernalia feels reaaaaally iffy.

    There is a difference between "this ad is not safe for work/disrupts viewing the website" and "this ad is for something I don't like".

    tbf "Guns" is a general web filtering category that *a lot* of companies have blocked. it's not a stretch to consider something like this NSFW.

    To quote the OP:
    The important things to know about the ads are that there are filters in place on these ads. This should keep out any ads for political candidates and any partisan political advertising. It should also keep out inappropriate ads. Even the best filters can fail, though, so if you run into any ads you think are inappropriate for these forums, we’d like you to post in this thread with the following information:

    Inappropriate ads in general, not just NSFW stuff.

    That obnoxious Lowes ad seems to be back. Unless it never left and I just got lucky for a few days.

  • DoodmannDoodmann Registered User regular
    Fillet of Fish from McDonalds pulled a Lowes style lower ad. It was bad. Please flag it.

    I'm getting multiple local political banners lately.

    eg

    This one is super annoying because the entire thing is animated to 'explode' every five seconds or so.

    Less the bride's bare shoulders; more the bride's bare backside.

    OK, my mind's in the gutter. Can we get rid of clickbaity nonsense like bonvoyaged anyway?

    If everyone could bear with us just a little longer, we should have a more permanent fix for some of these bad ads shortly

    Yeah, so, ads for DIY guns?

    Probably not great!

    Also never stopped getting Queen's Blade stuff, by the way. Still getting it even now.

    E:
    Oh, hey, even more gun paraphernalia. Lovely. Great to see the algorithm is working.

    Political ad for "endorse jennifer-ruth" that I refuse to take the time to screencap and crop because the former president-turned-insurrectionist is also in it.

    I recognize the character, the ad I see her in is more detailed. It's not porn, just a generic idle waifu gacha game based on an anime I've never heard of. They always advertise themselves like they're porn but they're never porn.

  • ArcTangentArcTangent Registered User regular
    That anime you've never heard of? It's porn. GIS it if you're skeptical.
    Because one of the top images is a topless woman shooting goo from her nipples.

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose 83 Blue Ridge Protects the Holy Registered User regular
    Also I think it was already established that “trying to look like porn” was close enough, given the point is not triggering filters and/or nosy prudes at your workplace, neither of which are noted for their subtlety or nuance.

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.

    I've gotten a number of different flavors of this today. "Totally uncensored wedding pics!" "Unbelievable photos that will leave you breathless!" etc

    It appears to be a SOMEWHAT more SFW flavor of the Newzgeekz and similar stuff from before, but advertised as sleezily as possible. Dunno if it needs to be acted on, but is trashy.

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose 83 Blue Ridge Protects the Holy Registered User regular
    How to guarantee you have the most immature audience possible: advertise for mature audiences only.
