You do have them switched off don't you Lady? Since you are a Premier user.
We have a bit of a dilemma at this time of year as the contracted ads (these are the nice ones that come out of the bike industry) are at their lowest levels. That means the Network supplied stuff gets more of the volume. We don;t get to vet these ads until they appear (at least with most of the network providers we use) and so we have to have a more reactionary policy on the ads. We have got an awful lot of filters set up on the advertising to block certain categories like adult, dating, gambling, politics etc.. But it's a broad tool and occasionally some get through.
Turning them off is not an option. They earn us money that we need to run the business. becoming a premier user and then deactivating them is one option but making the site awkward to use otherwise is not a sustainable strategy. We are currently getting traffic around the 1.3 million uniques a month level which dwarfs the number of premier users. Deliberately making the site difficult to use for 99.9% of our users would be a very daft thing to do obviously.
We are planning some advertising layout changes with fewer positions but new ad size formats in a few weeks time and we'll have a few extra subs options for you early next month too, which should make things better
