    And Go daddy - hateful company; the owner goes out shooting elephants:

    These sort of ads are putting me off using this site. Seriously. I know you've got to monetise it but perhaps we can lose these companies?
    I am 99.9% sure they are lovely high quality google adsense ad's, I will attempt to restrain google again this weekend (shattered right now) but we are in the process of removing/reducing google adsense right now for these reasons and more so poor ad's hopefully will be less of an issue in the future when we get rid.

    My macbook burned out so I have only finally been able to apply the changes now as tablets were useless to adsense manage. The changes should be applied in the next couple of hours.

    Screenshot of the post in question:



    Not sure what was being advertised and I have accidentally closed the tab with the advert [now can't copy the ad URL]

    I don't know what the URL is but this ad popped up as one of @ZeroHour's signature pictures:



    Perhaps content that isn't appropriate. Sorry if this is a false alarm.
