    I've been looking for a job in the past few days and now every single ad on the forum is something in the lines of "find a free girl" or something equally creepy. I know that google ads work in a way that they only suggest you stuff that you have already visited, but I didn't look for "free girls" anywhere.

    Is there a way to fix this? This happens on my phone too, and I can't disable the ads there.

    By the way, could you please make the ads smaller in the mobile version?

    ...please guys, read what I wrote.

    I don't watch porn (without the private mode), and I definitely don't watch any on my phone. I don't have an Adblock on my phone nor I can install one.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    clear cookies and cache, make sure its not leftovers from flash cookies or something... even if you use private mode, sometimes there are leftovers from other beacons
    make lots of searches for mini games that a kid would search (flash\shokwave games like the ones on miniclip)

    It's Google AdSense Ads, right? Click on the little X in the corner of the ad (if it has one, normally they do.) and click "Stop seeing this ad" and select "Inappropriate" or "Irrelevant". That's how I get rid of ads, it works pretty much every time.

    BLASPHEMY!
    But seriously @Vipera if you use Chrome or FireFox, just install AdBlock Plus from their extention store

    If that doesn't work, I'll look around for other ways to disable them.
    Really the only ads that don't have the X on them are things like Bitdefender or Bell cellphone ads, (which had the AdSense button on it, but that's it. Also, fuck Bell.) and I also got some ad about assembling PCB boards that didn't have one.

    The "free girl" has been replaced with an AC ad. Thanks tomato.

    Anyway, nothing like this has ever happened to me before. So weird.

    If you have any issues like this in the future, I'd suggest also going into your AdSense settings and changing your interests in there. There's a link to them somewhere on here.
