offensive ad in my blog, perhaps an illegal one

  1. WordPress.com is displaying an offensive ad in my blog. maybe even an illegal one - actively promoting woman trafficking. please stop this immediatly!

    The blog I need help with is degeladom.wordpress.com.

  2. Oh really? Are you sure it's not a browser add-on issue?

  3. If the ads you see are found at the end of blog posts then what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising. Look for the About These Ads link to confirm. http://en.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/

    WordPress.com does not use text enhance or text link ads or pop-up ads or links in comments. If you are seeing those then that's a browser-ad-on issue, or in some cases, it's embedded into free games and/or toolbars downloaded from the internet. See here: Bloggers: Beware of Adware. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/09/14/bloggers-beware-of-adware/

    If what you are seeing whenever you save or update a post or page is an automatically added code/script block at the end of posts and pages that you can't delete then see here: Malware Targets Macs and Windows PCs http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/10/02/malware-targets-macs-and-windows-pcs/

  4. All of WordPress.com ads are family-friendly. If you feel an ad is inappropriate please take a screenshot of it, upload it via Media -> Add New to your Media Library. Then return to this thread to post the file name to let Staff them know it’s there for them to view.

    Note: To eliminate all advertising on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs we can purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.

  8. Looks like it may have already taken care of, if I can judge by the tweets in the sidebar of that site...

  9. Our internal team jumped right on it. Thanks again for reporting it promptly!
