Obscene Ads on VMF?!?? WTF?!?

Subject: Obscene Ads on VMF?!?? WTF?!?

Let me first just start off by saying that I am in no way offended by any of these ads... It's just not the place for it here on the VMF...That's all...

I just found it hysterical when I logged onto the VMF today and the ads from this specific company "Bellelily.com" were hitting me in the face with Female BUTTS galore.... I had to laugh...I was like WTF?!? I had never had anything like this come up in the VMF ads frame before.....Yeah, sure, You get the usual car insurance ads, Geico, Progressive... but what's new is this "Ad Porn".... I nearly fell out of my chair laughing...

Is Anyone else experiencing this?!

The EXACT pics that were showing up on the VMF Ad Frames are at their below website......Hysterical!! Have a look!

I get annoying popups for "CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS " that I've won Wal-Mart gift cards and friggin iPods, spin to win and other click-bait scam and virus crap ONLY when I'm on VMF from time to time. I don't get this stuff from other sites. No butts yet, however it probably won't be long. Need some updates to this site, its servers, and protection for its users.

The ads will be strictly served up by a third party and VMF has no idea what’s being stubbed into your browser, although they will be compensated to some degree by views and clicks of same.
The curating of the ads will be based on your browsing history and whatever Alexa overhears, lol.

I had that happen several times last night. No idea why, but extremely annoying.

Run the free version of Malwarebytes.

It will all go away...

And the moderators will chime in and tell you how necessary these third ads are and how they have no control over it.

You can control it if they can't. Ads, what ads?

I use AdBlocker Ultimate, and never get any ads. I can't imagine why anyone would subject themselves to that crap... the ads that is...not the butts. If I had to disable AdBlocker, I just wouldn't come here.
