    Agreed. This is not the type of advertising we want here.

    with adsense you don't have total control over what ads are being shown. They can limited certain categories of ads, but the ads being displayed are from a combination of what each user had browsed on the internet and the country they are in.

    EDIT: I stand corrected, you can block urls now. I never noticed that before. Just took a screenshot of my adsense account.

    FWIW, from reading through this forum over the years, arn and other admins have had good success with making certain ads never reappear on the site.

    Absolutely. :)

    I do wonder what sort of standards Google AdSense has in allowing creeps like this to be part of their program. AFAICT, they have a very low standards for acceptable advertisers. It's another example where do no evil seems essentially meaningless.

    I updated your thread title to make it clear what this is about. I'll pass this on to the admins to look at.
