    1.) Date and time ad was visible: March 8th, 2013, 11:38 pm, EST
    2.) Region (Pick one: USA, Canada, Europe, or Rest of the World): USA
    3.) Location of ad (Top box or bottom box): Bottom
    4.) Brief description of objectionable content (including a name or other identifying characteristic): Drugcraft. Seems awfully inappropriate to be advertising a version of minecraft that is focused on Drugs. May just be me being overly sensitive, but I wouldn't want my oldest daughter stumbling across that if she got on my computer.(To be clear, it's a minecraft private server(from what I can tell) called Drugcraft)

    I didn't click on the ad, as they are usually scams/spams/malware. But generally when you see the words Free Video Games, you know they are iffy at best, and illegal at worst.

    I tried opening the 99gamers ad and at first glance it doesn't seem all that bad. It appears to be a service by which you can sell old video games and purchase used ones from others using virtual currency. The ad doesn't refer to "free video games", it refers to "free video game trading." As in, the trading service is free but the video games aren't.

    Also, the very few people who went on the site and rated it on Web of Trust gave it a perfect score for what that's worth.

    As far as I can tell for a quick look, it seems to be on the level. It's just a site that helps people trade their used games.

    Oh, also visible in Canada.

    Yeah, no. It's a common slang terminology for Magic: The Gathering cards, and there's nothing about the comic being advertised that is even slightly about illegal drugs. No action taken.

    I haven't clicked the picture itself, because as your post seems to indicate, it may contain mallicious executables, but an inspection of the image data shows that it links here: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=284147, a spam thread which has stayed up for a whole day by now...

    EDIT:
    Seems I must've mixed it up with where I stood when opening up the image data, which threw me off track as soon as I moved away from the page.

    I followed it and it asked me to stay to the end of the video, then when I tried to leave it asked me if I really wanted to.

    Looks like I missed most of these, though I'm not sure whether all of them would have qualified for blocking anyway. I think I probably would have allowed the DrunkQuest one, since alcohol is legal and the game itself isn't actually an alcohol product anyway. Buying a copy of the game will not actually get anyone drunk.

    EDIT: Was able to find the "slave to your boss" and TTT ones in my expired bids; advertisers blocked.

    While I don't think the ad itself is objectionable (though it may be), the website is trying to sell you a book with hints to seduce "any woman you want." When you try to close the tab or window, it does that "hey, look at this popup telling you not to leave!" thing that's synonymous with scams.

    1.) Date and time ad was visible: June 8th, 9:04 AM eastern standard time.
    2.) Region (Pick one: USA, Canada, Europe, or Rest of the World): USA
    3.) Location of ad (Top box or bottom box): Bottom
    4.) Brief description of objectionable content (including a name or other identifying characteristic): "Automatic SEDUCTION you can have her tonight," with a (fully clothed) lady to left, her pinkie in her mouth.

    While I don't think the ad itself is objectionable (though it may be), the website is trying to sell you a book with hints to seduce "any woman you want." When you try to close the tab or window, it does that "hey, look at this popup telling you not to leave!" thing that's synonymous with scams.
    Came here to report this ad at 1:08pm Saturday, June 8th in the Eastern USA timezone (daylight savings time).

    Pre-order the printed calendar from Ookoodook or the digital edition from Gumroad. Get the ornament and t-shirts from CafePress.
