Those advertisers that try to trick you into clicking on their links by masking them as report photos are bad enough, but this is a new low! Hope the attachment comes through. I can email it if needed.

The advertisers dont have any clue where their adds are going to end up. Thats just where Aaron put that box when he designed the webpage. All sorts of things show up there, but NWFR doesnt have control of what shows up. Im pretty sure thats Google or someone similar.

Yup, those are Google adds. You can click on the little X in the box at the top right of the add and ask for it not to be shown again. Then you wont get it. By the way - those adds are often targeted at you specifically based on your browsing history.

Last week I was shopping for something on my phone and adds for those things and similar items started showing up in that box the next day and for several days after that.
