ANN is supported by advertising, but we forbid invasive ads like:
* pop-up
* pop-under
* overlays
* sound that plays when page loads

Additionally, we also forbid inappropriate ads including:
* Ads for hate groups or promoting hate speech
* Ads for pirate and bootleg content or goods
* Ads featuring pornography (we allow ads for pornographic content provided the ads themselves are not pornographic)
* Ads for religious organizations or content
* Ads for political parties, and certain other political content (case by case basis)
* Ads for content or services that is otherwise illegal

The most important thing to do when you see such an ad is to report it using the Report a Problem feature. Instructions on how to do this can be found here: animenewsnetwork.com/.144075

In addition (but not instead of) using the Report a Problem feature, you can also post additional information in this thread.

Additional useful information not collected by the report includes:

1) Screenshots
2) When this problem first happened
3) the url where the ad leads when you click on it (right-click -> copy link address)

Posting here also helps alert us to check the reports as we do not currently have a staff member dedicated to doing this every day.
