Some SE network ads are offtopic/inappropriate.

I recently saw a side add that was a bit surprising, albeit quite funny...

enter image description here

Maybe we could limit the ads to a limited scope of relevant stack exchange sites?

Does Ask Ubuntu screen these? Or are we at the mercies of other stackexchanges on this.

  • Other Stack Exchange sites don't pick which questions show up in the sidebar, they're chosen based on the most popular question in a given timespan then auto-generated. Commented May 20, 2012 at 13:18
  • so, we will always see very inappropriate questions, because they are most popular. I'm going to ad-block.

    Since that question was asked, content filtering has been put in place to avoid questions like the one asked in the original meta post. However, you'll still see a small amount of ads that may or may not be relevant to you from other SE networks in addition to our own Community Ads Commented May 20, 2012 at 19:59
