    I have now submitted 3 different kinds of input this morning to the link about re America.google-lucker popup. Hopefully this will help them get rid of this nuisance! If/when you do would you please post it here so I can cancel the popup blocker I subscribed to to stop this? Thx

    We usually don’t hear back from them. It usually takes 24 hrs to process. The pop ups are circumventing supplier filters so it takes time to chase them down. The more reports the more they can trace.

    They're bad when they're placed right in the middle of the thread regardless of content ...

    It is part of a flight scope ad campaign. What is the behavior of the ad? Is it auto playing sound? We could place it in its own posts.

    As for number of ads, we lost a significant number of placements from old layout to new. We are looking at ways to re enable placements.

    Sound is muted, when it finishes it gives you six tiles related to your YouTube history.

    Why do I get redirected to Mac App Cleaner? Plus I get an automatic download of the app. Just started today on September 19 although not the first time I've seen this.

    Respectfully, I get what your are saying but I find it very strange it only happens and pops up when I am on Golfwrx.

    Also why is this the only site I use that I get a "Not Secure" in the browser bar. What is that all about?

    Could there be a connection?

    I don't have a site address to provide, but yesterday I was getting several ads for what looked to be anime ****. There were multiple ads showing cartoon women scantily clad with suggestive wording. They were on my work computer (for which nothing but reputable sites are visited), so it has nothing to do with any search history that may, or may not be, on my personal computer.

    Edit:

    Here are the ads. Also, I'm not comfortable reporting these bad ads using the link you provided in the first post. That link seems like a scam, especially because that company wants permission to track my history.

    Here is another one, though this one exhibits poor grammar, which should be reason enough to get rid of it.

    Also a full screen pop-up video of the Zombieland Double Tap movie.

    I am not going to use the third party website to submit these.

    Unfortunately if the info is not reported to the ad serving company, then it can not be tracked down.

    I respectfully acknowledge that your team is limited to the tools that have been made available to you. Hopefully an improved "ad share" option can be used in the future. One that does not spam bad ads, and then ask to track your web history for submitting bad ads would be welcome.

    Serious question here... Given that ads are completely random and change with every page reload, how does reporting them even help? If I were to provide you a link for a bad ad, that ad will not be there when you click on the link because it will have changed. This is easily demonstrated if you go to any page on the forum and reload the page... the ads all change.

    I'm all for getting bad ads of the site, but how can reporting the link of the page where the ad rears its ugly face do any good when the page address and ad are independent of each other?

    The url link to the ad is needed to remove them

    Not the thread link where it appeared.
