I don't remember what information is needed to report an annoying add?

Wow, there are a bunch of adds that don't apply to gardening, and this one won't let you get an address?

Just because an ad isn't specifically related to gardening does not automatically mean we need to block it. The ads on the site are often based on your own searches you may have done on google and stuff like that. When I shopped for cell phones, I saw verizon ads for several days afterward.

You can turn ads completely off, if you wish. Do that through your preferences.

Thank you Dave. I haven't shopped for a mortgage or real estate so not sure why that would come up.

However it works, they certainly are persistent... I don't mind the ads, this is just an observation; we went to see "Jersey Boys" in Las Vegas over a year ago and I still see ads for tickets for the show, both here and pretty much everywhere else. Rolling my eyes.

One day I was seeing ads written in Spanish. I can't speak or read Spanish so it was a total mystery to me as to why that happened.

Usually I see ads for dog food and treats and nutritional supplements that I often shop for.

I know I can shut off the ads but I don't mind the ads.
