What is so extraordinarily bad in it? The same usual trash as any other ads.

It's best to turn off image loading in a browser and do not waste precious network and machine resources for every garbage.

Graphics is evil. Text is our all. :)

Use NoScript for Firefox Instead and block googleadsyndication.

I will not block the ads, as our ReactOS devs are hopefully covering some server costs from the ads.
It is just that they need to setup some filters on the ads (as far as I can remember, there is an option for filtering on Google AdSense).

Well, why to filter the ads at all, if you want to help ReactOS in this way? Look more and do not forget to click on it sometimes. :)

In the context of the forum topic that was the most inappropriate thing that has been said on this site, ever.

Clicking on ads should help to cover more server costs. So no malice was intended.

I know none was intended. I just had a "my gosh that wasn't the right thing to say" moment when you said "look more". Those are personal (sex?) ads we're talking about. That smiley didn't help either...

No offense is taken, so do not worry.
I think that the word "inappropriate" from the topic's title should describe my concerns in the best way.
There is a reputation problem for the website with such ads.

A good reason to filter them then.

Already spoke with Fireball and told him the rather questionable nature of these sites. He'll look into blocking them.
