Default Nudity in banner ads

I've had several banner ads pop up in the mobile site today, with pictures of naked women. The ads are supposed to be for dx.com, but it appears the wrong images are attached.

Not sure if you can fix this, but please try. Thanks.

Sure. These are a couple of smaller examples. There were a few that popped up that looked like full sized posts. I had a closer look and realized this isn't "full" nudity, but certainly embarrassing in public or around kids.

Those are targeting advertisements. Looks like monkeyracing has been a naughty boy.

Funny! I do buy from DX.com. I'm a bit boring though - they have super cheap tech goodies. Apparently, they also sell nipple band-aids.

You stated that you buy from them (DX.com) and they do sell those. Not really an issue RCT should involve themselves in. IMO

Contact them and express your concerns with them marketing that product towards you. Again, not an RCT issue IMO

Yeah, I am doing some fixer upper projects around the house.. my banner ad lately has been dominated by a 24" floor tile cutter on Amazon.

You're probably right. DX tends to keep their tech and "other" categories very separate, but I guess these glitches will happen. Anyway, seeing how this crap is showing up on RC Tech I'm probably not violating any rules by posting this.

Seriously. Every freaking day.
