who or what controlls what addvertisements are shown on the site,
and is there a way to keep it politic free?

We pre-sell advertising and then use 3rd party services to fill our remaining ad inventory. For these 3rd party services, we specifically block anything political or not intended for a general ages audience. There are settings we can use to specifically block them, and we pretty much block all of the filterable categories.

That being said, once in a while an ad can fall through the filter if someone administrating these services doesn't flag the ad properly. That's probably what happened if you saw a political ad. If it's coming up repeatedly for you, please screencap it and send me a link to the image via PM. We can find the ad in the appropriate system and report it for not being flagged properly.

file-save page as (ctrl+s) is screen cap right?

either way, this site did do surprisingly well, through the ellection season,
but if i catch anything ill try to remember to pm it

one thing about adds though is sometimes you get those adds that cover up
parts of peoples posts, i cant remeber for sure but i think you cant scroll around them either
they stay in one spot on your screen covering stuff up no matter what

if i see this occurance again, ill try to cap it so you can see what i mean

Maybe they have a system to judge what you have put here.
