Ads promoting dating

Hi there.

Not that I am struggling, but i have been on TAM since 2011 and have noticed many of the automatically generated ads that come up are advertising singles and dating services, and sonetimes "sexy Asians",

I get this is the downside to say Google ads, but wondering if you could look at set preferences for ad types as there are people here getting support for affairs and sexual issues and I do imagine these ads would be helpful or making them feel safe

A wise person here told me about Adblock Plus. Super easy to download. No more ads!

At least the ads aren't like my junk email folder. I get one junk email with some scantly clad twenty something posting "remember me from high school", my thinking back "if you look like that at 55? I'm doing something all wrong". Then the next email is an ad about planning my own funeral. What the hell. These mixed messages mess me up.

Re: Ads promoting dating

asiandate(dot)com is what I'm seeing in the banner and at the top right corner with adblock. Some chat line...

This is pretty tacky for a marriage site.
