Btw, did it ever occur to you that these are "smart" ads? For example, whenever I look at something on the web -- say, golf clubs, for example -- and navigate to another site, a similar ad pops up on that new site. The ads detect the cookies in your browser... or something.
Maybe these Asian whore ads are targeting you specifically. Obviously that wouldn't be a stretch to imagine.

Pretty weak and immature deflection though.
Are you really that sensative to user criticism? Face it, not every user is going to agree with every site decision.
We're all well aware we get no say or can go elsewhere. No need to be a bully after the fact.
BHR is actually correct - they actually are 'smart ads' - meaning the ads rotate and are tailored to the content that is indexed on the page itself. So much discussion about poon has resulted in those types of ads being displayed on the page, its that simple. It's not a new concept, Google AdSense does it all the time.
Edit:Upon further investigation, they actually are Google AdSense Ads.
Hell I remember the thread where we were discussing the 'Poop Cruise' thread, and there were ads for Carnival vacations [true story]

My main issue with the ads is really the sporadic cases of malware - I don't think there are actual viruses, but there is malware due to spyware, really. Virtually all rotating ad-banner programs contain it, unfortunately. Install Ad-Block = no worries.

Only an idiot would ever click on any ad banners or links here.
I'm sure Sooth will be glad to hear that one.
I wouldn't go that far, it's not like this is a pornography site or anything.
Half of the ads being displayed are being targeted directly at the user, based on their browsing history - especially if you are using Google Chrome.
Example - recently I was doing a search for new Subarus, so its no coincidence that Im seeing a Subaru ad from a local dealership.
There is a type of science to it, this is from Google's Adsense page:
What Google does and doesn’t do to show you ads
We may show you ads based on many factors, including:
The DoubleClick cookie on your browser
The contents of the website you’re viewing, if it’s part of the Display Network or a Google partner site
The types of websites you visit, if they’re part of the Display Network or a Google partner site
Whether you’ve previously interacted with any of Google’s ads or ad-type features
Anything you +1 on Google and across the web
Your Google profile
Basically I dont get the outrage over ads.
Based on Google's TOS for AdSense, his site cannot have this type of content on it to be a participant (Im guessing), it's that simple. There are plenty of other places I can go to get my fill of boobs, really.
Granted some of the ads being shown are only because of the content of the discussion on the page itself and/or the users search or web history. I'm not saying the ads aren't borderline (such as the MILF or Asian ads) but they aren't porn, so they are allowed in Google's AdSense network (Im guessing here as well).
