Inappropriate ads?

Anyone else getting some inappropriate ads? Don't want to say more for fear that the word will only cause more to pop up! You would know if you saw them.

No ads at all because I installed Adblock Plus (free). You have made me curious, however!

No, but if you donít want to download an adblocker you can click the x or triangle and report is as inappropriate. Youíll get a different ad but it should be more generic. Iíve done it a few times on gory Halloween ads

No, I get jewelry ads. I make sure to click on them every once in a while, so I keep getting them. It's nice to dream....

No...mostly Dillards clothing ads and book collections on ebay (which pretty much sum up my favorite type of purchase to make!).

Yes, PEPteach, me too. I've been getting ads for, shall we say, provocative clothing. Another one I get is for some weird creepy face mask for skiing or motorcycling or something. Neither of these items is anything I would ever search for, need, or want. Definitely not the right target audience.

Keltikmom, can you imagine! I bet the CEO of whatever weird company makes those masks would be seriously pi$$ed to think their money is putting ads on a teacher forum - not exactly their target audience.

Yep, yep, yep! I swear I wasn't googling anything of the sort! Looks like I need to get an ad blocker!

I've been searching online for a specific decorator item described as a "Galaxy. ----". Now all I see are ads for Galaxy phones here on PT. Ha! Not even close!
