Exclamation Inappropriate Ad Reporting Thread

Hello all,

I am trying to get inappropriate ads blocked, can you guys post up screenshot examples you get with the geolocation?

Note: Pop Up redirect ads on mobile should be reported here:
https://www.overclock.net/forum/17790...ng-thread.html

Thanks in advance,
Jeff M

These are highly inappropriate. They pop up from time to time.

I don't shop at this site, nor have I ever shopped there. They happen on mobile.

That's disappointing since Adchoices tends to not have the worst ads. The Taboola ones are the worst.

They are missing the button to report them too.. Most adchoices ads let you flag them.

Either way I've been scared to death I'll accidentally click one at work, so the report button wouldn't get clicked even if it did exist.

These things started right before Valentine's day - maybe the advertisers think the people on OCN are desperate

Taboola... Well they are just cancer. A gross looking medical picture with the headline "this one weird trick" or some model in a random picture with the headline "casinos can't stop you from doing this."

VS needs to find a way to exert more control over the ad choices they make or the companies they hire to provide ads, otherwise this will be a perpetual cat and mouse problem because new ads are made and distributed everyday by countless middlemen and that will warrant that new notice at the top of the forum to stay there forever, which in itself is counter-productive as people who read it will just think: 'I already know of a method to "help to combat ads on the main site and mobile site"'.

Yup, that is the problem with them, so many middlemen and people inserting "hacks" pretty much on all ad networks.

Believe me, we are trying as this is happening on other sites also.

Even if it isn't inappropriate the taboola stuff slows down the site immensely.

I can't give you that many examples because I have to log out , disable Noscript + ublock + other stuff.

Anyway I captured this from Vivaldi (opera's successor), NONE of the ads have anything to do with OCN and if you look at the loading bar the site hangs waiting for Taboola's garbage to load:
