Topic: Sleazy ads on page?

Since I'm seeing these on my PC at work, I doubt it has anything to do with my browsing history or targeting. But I was kind of suprised to see ads like this on NL. I certainly hope you haven't had to resort to selling ad space to these advertisers lately. I have a couple of screencaps, but it doesn't look like I can embed them here.

I never saw one of those, just mostly vindictus and amazon ads

@Tandoori I doubt NL directly deals with the advertisers in such cases - I suspect the site just plays host to an external agency that decides what ads feature.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

@gcunit I know that, but the deals with those agencies also usually contain agreements or guidelines on the types of ads that are displayed, even if there is no direct control over the individual ads themselves.

@Tandoori Just how sleazy are we talking?

Here ya go..

it's not outright porn or anything, but it's definitely gross, "sexy" clickbait stuff. I'm used to seeing ads like this, of course, I was just suprised to see them on this page and thought the ad manager might want to know, as it's a little "off-brand" from what I'm used to seeing here.

@jump lol!

@Tandoori I really don't think they have anything to do with that. I would be lying if I said I haven't seen some before but most the time i'm getting stuff for Rosetta stone LMAO.

@Snatcher again, I understand how web ads work. But site owners typically have an agreement on what types of ads they do and do not want shown on their site, and I don't remember ever seeing ads like this here beforeAnd if so, it's the type of thing that the administrators would want to be made aware of so they can contact the advertising company and remove them from the rotation.

@Tandoori Well you could tag ant if you wanted if you really wanted to get this checked out, I agree, but I might have missed this, but do you get them often? if so ya.

But X-mas pics that will even melt frosty? Who the hell came up with that LMAO.

@VoidofLight The problem with ad block though is that NL is not getting anything when people use them. How do you expect them to be able to cover the cost of running the site?

Yeah, I don’t use adblockers for this very reason.

I disable add blockers for sites that I like. Nintendo Life doesn´t even spam you with pop ups. I even click the affiliate link if I´m planing to buy from play asia.
As for those adds there must be a target obedience who is lurking here that adverse got it from browser cookies.

@LzWinky well I could tag them, but it looks like you already did it for me Thanks, I wasn't sure who to contact or what was the best way.

Idk man, I'd like to see what went down in those hotel moments, and MAYBE the 21 Xmas pics that'll melt frosty. If you ask me, they're just trying to spread some Christmas cheer.

These types of ads will naturally go away when you stop going to sleazy websites.
