This is the downside of Outsourcing the Advertising.

IDG have a lot to answer for, or maybe its just been bought up by Dick Desmond!

Firstly, let me say this: I have nothing against Porn and have some "Naughty" Pictures on my Hard Drive. They are for my viewing only and anyone searching my Hard Drive should have no difficulty avoiding a Folder Titled "My Porn" should they not wish to view them.

However, this is a Public Forum and were I a female I might either, have very strong objections or, be demanding 'beefcake' on a "prid pro quo" basis.

What? Can't see any adverts of that kind.

And I don't use an adblocker either.

Yes, please send screenshots. All outside advertising is governed by strict rules so should not happen.

What type of ad was it - shape, position, image, text?

Thanks,

Simon

Sent Screen Shot to 'SJ' and he is sorting

We have installed further filters for such ads, including dating, gambling and black magic (not the chocolates).

Tablet opens PCA with a huge ( for a 7" screen) blank advert space and a 'skip this advert' link top right. If I allow it to load on the tablet it doesn't, then fades away. Now getting the tedious 'long script' if I click on a loaded page too soon on the desktop. The pages load fast but you can't do anything until the blue circle, on the tab, decides to stop.

Grey circle on the tab. Just realised its colour. How boring is that.
