Some of them are just shocking!

The anti ageing one for example http://www.ch8health.com/skincare/featuredstory/trifu/uk/
It's laughable! Total snake oil ********!

Do you have any control on the ads?

AFAIK a 3rd party handles the ads so no, we don't have control over them. Arn can report annoying ads to be removed though, I think.

We can block individual inappropriate ones as they come up.

Screenshot always helps.

Like the linked ad, I am extremely annoyed by any websites that do this when you try to close the tab/window:

I hate those too. Rather than pressing OK or Cancel, I end up Force Quitting Safari to avoid any potential malicious redirections.

Here are screenshots of the banner and the page it directs you to.

I love how it adapts to the country you're in, haha.

While not shocking, I do find this one and others like it amusing...coming from a site about Apple and all. :D

One banner ad I've noticed recently, here and on gizmodo, has a nice big blue arrow pointing right
I've clicked it a few times thinking it was the next page of the forum! Don!
