I am probably going to get lambasted for this, but I had an ad show up to buy a picture of some starlet in a mesh top with nothing left to the imagination. I didn't catch who placed the ad before it disappeared for the next ad. Probably not what you want showing up on your site. Certainly not what should show up on my work computer.

Just popped up again. It is Catherine Bell and it is an Etsy ad.
Heh, well ads get served based on user activity. Not only browser history itself, but purchase history of various accounts synced on your device, chat history from various apps, even topics you’ve spoken about on video/phone calls.

Have you been watching JAG reruns lately?

Yeah we have no control over this. It's a user to user thing. If you buy a lot of golf stuff online, you'll see a bunch of golf ads, etc.

Could one of you please screenshot the top right mobile ad issue for me to send to dev? I cannot replicate it.
I think it might have something to do with the ads in the drop down list in the top right, three dots, I had never seen an ad there until I started seeing seeing the ad appear on the homepage. The ad hasn't shown up on the homepage as frequently but I have a screen shot of an ad in the dropdown. It's this but with only the bottom left 50% visible blocking the navigation buttons in the top right. Screenshot_20210719-100413_Chrome.jpg

I had the upper right thing on an iPhone 11 for weeks, although not today. Made navigation incredibly frustrating.
So does my DH. Not sure about today. Told him to post here but he won’t. Sigh.

This is the problem. I'm seeing it too. Ads are showing up in that menu and leaking into the main page.
