Heads up mods - suspicious ad
« on: August 14, 2012, 03:33:27 PM »
I'm getting a pop up on the index page that may be problematic. Four photos of women suggestively dressed and a head that says "We Don't Like Young Men, We Want You."
Just because you're disappointed in me doesn't mean I did anything wrong.

Oh, FUN!

If I may, I submit my standard advice for internet issues, including (but not limited to) sudden onset porn ads: Clear your cache, run anti-virus (and any other anti-malware) scans you may have at your disposal, and reboot your computer.

Here's a post that the Admin made on Hell's Bells in references to the website advertising, hope it can help.

If I know of a specific URL, I can block specific ads from appearing as well.    Iíve blocked wedding web sites whose business model is a complete contradiction to Ehell values but the key point is that I need to know the URL before I can do that.

I don't see the url when I move my mouse over the ad and I don't want to click on for fear of getting a virus so I can't post that. But, it is visible when I do into the dating sub thread. Does that help?

relationship and political ads are blocked on the entire site via Google Adsense so if you seeing one, I'd really like to know about it.  I can't do a thing unless I have a URL for the ad....like www.fancyschmancystore.com

If you're using a 2-button mouse, you should be able to right-click on the ad to copy the URL without actually following the link.

OK, I added it to the specific URL block list.  It should disappear within a day.  Thanks!

I'll block that one, too. Although why I need to block ads I have specifically restricted from the site is a mystery.  All relationship and politics should not be appearing on any Ehell site.

I wonder if that's why the url contains so many redirects, to hide a that its a political site and get round filters and thus more exposure.

That would be my guess - I can't imagine any other reason for it to be that crazy long and complicated.
