Frequently Asked Questions

This is a single FAQ from the MetaFilter FAQ.

A sketchy or inappropriate ad is showing on the page. What can I do?

Copy the URL that the ad is pointing to and send it to the mods through the contact form, telling us what the ad said and where on the page you saw it. This allows us to get it blocked. Metafilter does not pre-approve the advertisements that are shown; we can only catch the bad ones if users send us their URLs. See here for more about how advertising works on Metafilter.
