Like I’d explained earlier, google ads are targeted. How they determine that target beats me. I keep seeing similar ads of Ukrainian dating sites. I think Dating sites are the most used across platforms and that could be the reason. I guess, we have 2 options;

1. I’ll look for ways to disable these types of ads
2. If 1 is not possible, we’ll do away with google ads completely and just keep the amazon banner.

I've blocked the offensive ads. Let us see how long it takes for the blocks to take effect.

I don't have a problem with just ignoring an ad that I don't particularly like.

True. But I think google has heard us. I don’t see the Ukrainian sites now.

Nor do I, but it don't want newbies thinking that we condone it. I'd rather they didn't see such crap at all.

Well, yeah.  That is why I complained a while back, shortly after the program started, about the ad I saw from a snake oil company pushing a supplement and saying carbs don't matter.  I think that it may be hard to choose which ads are OK and which are not.

I guess I hadn't seen any yet, at the time you brought it up.

I’m happy to confirm that I have not seen the offending Dating site ads for the past couple of days. If anyone is still seeing them, please let me know.
