Default Disturbing Advertisements...

Around the forum lately, I have seen some downright disturbing & disgusting advertisements lately.
(of course, when i go to search for some, they're all hiding.. lol)
but for example, this:

Click the image to open in full size. i really doubt any of us want to see this.
is there a way for WI to monitor the ads? maybe have kid-friendly ones only?
thanks for reading. ♥ amanda

Webkinz Insider is signed up for "Family Friendly" advertisements. Unfortunately, we don't get to review the ads before they show up here on WI. If at any point you see an ad that you believe is inappropriate for Webkinz Insider, please notify a member of the staff. If Justin determines an ad is truly inappropriate, he can block the ad's URL so it won't show up again. --FIA

Yes, I used to hate coming to this site and having the nudie pics pop up for hot S** in my home town.......


It sounds like you have "malware" running on your system that is inserting those ads into the space were the Google ads should be running. Please run a virus scan on your system ASAP. --FIA

The ones that have been annoying me lately are ones advertising for some fantasy role play website showing rather scantily clad women.

Around Valentine's Day there were some inappropriate advertisements for lingerie, including the words "s** bomb", which I complained about, and a few days later they were pulled.

From what I understand, WI doesn't control what ads come on, but canl get rid of inappropriate ones. If you want to bring this to the attention of a moderator or administrator, flag your post.

If you are seeing inappropriate ads you should contact a mod!

I had that happen to me and I actually had some spyware or something... which was NOT from WI!!! It was from something else but it affects the ads on sites like WI, but is NOT WI's fault!!!
