So i was downloading PureBDCraft for 1.13 when i got an ad that was very innapropriate, it was literally porn, this is a site to download minecraft texture packs and alot of kids are gonna visit it, there needs to be more control over what ads to show.

I'd also like to mention that my mom was right next to me, which makes it even worse

We're sorry to hear that. We're not sure why adf.ly is getting so bad... they really shouldn't expose minors to porn.

When you see inappropriate ads you should report them to adf.ly by clicking the "Report Ad" link on the advert page.

I've just sent an email to a contact we have from Adfly stating that we can't accept Malicious or Porn Ads and that the issue must be fixed as soon as they can.

Basically the problem is that advertisers submit an Ad to Adfly which moderates those before the Ad goes live.
However after an Ad gone live, it can still be modified by the bad advertiser to display anything else (scam or porn for example), bypassing the Adfly moderators.

There are technical solutions to fix such issue (like Adfly hosting the validated ads), so I'm not sure why those solutions are not considered by Adfly yet.


In the meantime, you can consider removing all the ads by becoming a supporter. ;)
