    BTW there was another thread about this:
    Ad Selection

    Steps have been taken to filter them but no there is not much control with google (categories etc) as the ad's are contextual but it takes a little for the system to get its accuracy up.
    See the other thread anyway and post ad's there for now.

    Thats strange, I only get ads in firefox but not in IE7...must have turned them off somehow.
    I got ads for 'gay men' though when I looked at this thread in FF so must be linked to the thread text somehow

    Figured out why I don't get ads in IE7 - remembered i have this nifty bit of software installed that has an Ad blocker built in :-) along with some other useful little bits.

    I have added a large amount of sites to filter ads from but it looks like adsense has got much more silly over the years.

    Katem: I have ie7 pro installed but I have found stability issues with it. I would recommend disabling the crash recovery anyway as that helped me.
