I've been getting them all morning too.  Normally I just ignore an ad I don't like, because I know you guys aren't picking this stuff, but whoa....  I just can't take this one today.  I don't need to see wounded and abused animals here on craftster.  I came to the thread to post pictures of what's been coming up for me, but since you guys already know about it, I won't make more people suffer through the images. 
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WORKING ON THIS SWEETS4EVER!  And please know that all your hard work, on every little problem, is appreciated by all of us.

*shudders*

yeah.  way to guilt us into donating, WSPA.  I've seen the same ads on other sites and I usually just leave the site.

thanks for taking care of this for us.  Smiley

Just FYI all, we were told it will take up to 24 hours for the ads to clear out. So the work is done but the network just needs to catch up. Smiley

I guess I don't mind the ads really.  I like the craft ones to the right of the screen, I've even gone to a few sites.  I don't particularly want to see non-craft ones, but as long as there ARE craft ones, it's ok I guess.  I have a pop-up blocker, which takes care of the annoying ones, but I hope that you never get those ads where if your cursor happens to go over the ad, it explodes into a larger picture/video and you can't see what you've been trying to read.  those are sooooo annoying.

Hi, guys!  We started a new thread for ad reports.  This will make it easier for us to easily track them versus comments regarding non-crafty ads in general.

Please report questionable ads in a reply to this thread:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=270606.0

Report questionable and potentially offensive ads and ads that scroll/talk/start playing without user interaction.  In your reply, please do your best to describe the ad and include a link to where the ad leads.

As of 07/08, we do have some non-crafty ads circulating, which you can read about in the first post of this thread.  Please only report the offensive ads to us, though. Smiley

Thanks!

I also had to enable an ad blocker due to the animal abuse ads. They are all over the page and so not the way to get donations.  I love the crafting ads, so this is unfortunate.

I don't know if there's a place to report ads we love, so I'm just gonna say it here: The snickers ads are cracking me up! My favorite is the older gentleman "punching zombies" and posing with his candy bar.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

Ok, I have to ask this lest I know without being enlightened.  I see not all ads are craft related but it doesn't bother me much unless they are really annoying for some reason.  But there is something I don't (want to) quite understand.  Now there are these "ads by google", and I've just notice that now they come with a little pic on the left.  What calls my attention is that, in fact, it's the same one or two pics all the time, while the ad changes every time I click to move to another page in Craftster.  What really, really intrigues me is why should I see a pic of a lady crafting with beads illustrating an ad for pet food.
Here, have a look:


This is what I call misleading advertising.  For lack of a better description.  I just wanted to point it out.
