    I know adverts are a revenue for sites to make money but the latest ads have me a bit concerned as i have children who frequent the site for news.

    When i looked across at the screen and spotted pictures of womens asses and boobs i was not impressed is there a contact form for the admin? I have never had a problem with the site as its always been a great source of news and updates for all media i currently own.

    As the site has a wide range of members from across the globe ads of this nature are not apropriate.

    Thanks for reading....

    Clear your cookies (that's the most common way they track your interests) and assuming nobody visits porn in that browser anymore the ads should stay clean?

    Those are ads for dating sites, which tend to be based on the gender and age your browsing habits hint about, rather than porn.

    You could always use a browser's "private" mode (or "incognito" in chrome) to visit GBATemp, then it shouldn't see your cookies, and so it should just give you generic ads.

    Or just block the ads.

    Either delete the cookies or get 100+ post so you won't be able to see the ads

    That really isn't an appropriate suggestion to be making in this scenario...

    get an adblocker addon for your browser, no more ads ... ever, n if any do get past the blocker simply right click the ad and add to the block list... simples!

    There was one odd time where I was on the main page and I got a similar ad as what the OP mentioned. Thing is, it was on my 3DS. And I clear history/cookies often because I find it gets a bit slow. What then?

    yea, I too have had somewhat inappropriate ads when not logged in (I cant see them when logged in). And that was right after I had cleared everything from my browser.

    Speaking of ads, what happened to the option to still show ads when logged in (to support the site)?

    Just did a quick test, ran browser in incognito, not logged in, after a few page refreshes (it clearly had no "history" on me) I got iPhone 4 stuff, Sky TV stuff, Google Stuff, fake download buttons, "winner" meesages, some kind of medical thing and finally scantily clad ladies - so yes it could well be an issue.
