I apologize that you were served ad copy that you found to be out of place here on eham.net.

There should not be any 'porno' ads appearing on the site.  In order for us to block
or even look into an offending ad we need to know what ad it is.  The google ads that appear
on the site are served by google - generally I find the ads to be very targeted to the content of
the page or to the user.  By default we have blocked many categories of ads that we feel most
users to this site would find objectionable but maybe there are some companies or categories we have missed.

When you see an ad you feel does not belong on eham.net you can report it to us, to do this you need to supply
us with the URL that the site links to. To do this you can right click on the ad image and  select something like "copy link URL".  Then past this URL into a message to me.  geoiii@eham.net

Thanks

Google also tracks your browsing and search history to place ADs.  Just sayin...

Anonymously, of course.

Most of them are not controlled or display by eham. My guess is that a porn site got a tunnel thru a normal ad site.

"Girls in their underwear" is not porn (unless you are an old pervert).

For a while, I got a t-shirt company's ad ("MEH") quite a lot on websites; young woman in sunglasses, T-shirt, and what might have been underwear or might have been a bikini bottom.  If that's what the OP meant, it seemed pretty innocuous to me ... though booty is in the eye of the beholder.  Wink

You are posting to the wrong person. I did not originate the thread, nor did I see the ad in question.

FWIW, I did a google for RC micro helicopters to see if I can get one to learn for me and my daughter. Now those ads are popping up everywhere I go.

Your search engine created a cookie to tell DoubleClick (or whatever) what you were looking for and any web site using that targeted advertising service will pull up adverts specific to your search history. If it bothers you enough and you're using Firefox, click TOOLS up top, go to CLEAR RECENT HISTORY, then toss your cookies. So to speak.

If you haven't cleared cookies in a while you may notice the browser runs faster as there could be thousands of them in your history....

Emptying that junk from your browser regularly is always a good idea. Of course, one then needs to remember passwords and the like.  But that's a good idea as well. ;-)

I do not mind because I shop online and that would reset the passwords and carts.

I saw the same ad. It was typical of all modern general audience ads.

I thought it was strange for a ham site, but I thought that ad was better than looking at a typical Ham in his bikini briefs.

If you somehow got a look at a typical ham in bikini briefs, you'd really 'toss your cookies!'
