Neowin was serving some dodgy ads due to a mixup of backfill inventory that was linked to a Google account that wasn't filtered or even supposed to be used until yesterday.

 

Dating and Gaming related ads with scantily clad women/men imagery shouldn't show up now.

 

Some people and guests reported it, and I just want to let you know that this has now been resolved on our end.

Is this for all regions ?

I've been seeing the flirt.no ads in Norway with Norwegian text and some half naked girls in "sensual" positions. Nothing really nsfw or anything, but maybe not suitable for the site. Was a bit unsure since it was a localized ad how much control you had over it.

Yes, I saw them in our AdSense too when I was filtering yesterday, but that AdSense id is no longer used.
