I don't know if this is the appropriate place to ask this or not.  If it isn't, I'm sure someone will shift it around, right?

Lately, I seem to be barraged with large banner ads hawking some weight loss product that will allow me to lose 25 lbs of ugly belly fat in 3 weeks.

Is this the kind of ad that we can talk about blocking?  I generally think of the Craftster community as being supportive and accepting of all of our bodies, so it's a bit disconcerting to me to see an ad here that so blatantly encourages us to hate what we look like.  It's also got to be a quack product.  Believe me, if there was an actual way to lose 25 lbs in 3 weeks, I'd know about it.

I know this is a particular hot button issue for me, so if I'm out of line, please let me know and I'll just grit my teeth when I see it and move on.

Thanks.

Yeah, those can be blocked.  I think that they need the address that it goes to, though.

There's the short cut for one of the ads.

I just blocked that one earlier today. Let's hope the block takes effect soon! Those ads are super-annoying. And they sneakily have all kinds of variations of them like:

monicasdietblog.com
jennysdietblog.com
etc
etc

And that one even said Jenny's Diet Blog in the ad, but linked out to Monica's. 

You're my hero, Leah.

Thank you!!!

wouldn't it be possible to block *dietblog.com then? If they're all variations of that name

These are Google AdSense ads and sadly you have to specify a specific URL.

I have very flashy, annoying "You have 1 message waiting for you" ads coming up on every single page.  They are misleading (they don't tell you what they are advertising / could supposedly be from this site) and incredibly annoying.

I've had that one throughout the day too.  I could see how it would be very misleading to new people on the site and for those of us that spend almost every waking minute on here, its just annoying Tongue
