    Is There a Troll On the Site?

    HI,

    I was just in the Recipes section and I keep seeing ads for a sleazy Asian dating site in the middle of the threads. I don't think this is at my end. Is there a troll attacking the site? You may want to check it out.

    I keep getting the same disgusting ad. Have "reported" and blocked it several times through Google ads, but it hasn't helped. They will tell you it is based on your search history, but I know that can't be the case this time!

    It certainly isn't my search history! I'm on my own private computer, so I know that no one else has been looking up that kind of stuff. Besides, I always use PRIVATE mode. Even on the QB.

    I've also run a website in the past and I know that Google Ad Words allows the webmaster to pick and choose what kinds of ads show up on their site. Someone in charge should check it out.
