Can you take a screen shot?

Admin has been pretty good about keeping the advertising content "clean" and appropriate for the website (penny auction websites like qui - bids are a case in point) but my understanding is that keeping them out often involves blocking the IP that the Google ad is being served from and sometimes ads make it through that shouldn't.

Where exactly on the page are you seeing those?
