Ads have gone viral

As someone else said just below me, some of the ads on my board have become totally inappropriate, according to the members.

But in addition to that, it seems that they've become a viral menace. I have my own Adblock set to allow non-intrusive ads and show how many intrusive ones it blocks. Today when I was just there, the Adblock counter was flying. By the time I left it was almost to 1000 ads blocked. If the ad actually loads, it's three static pictures for a luxury Italian vacation, taking up a good 3" across the entire screen, and the ad count stops. If it doesn't load it looks like three video buttons waiting to be clicked and the ad counter runs like mad. Since it's located near the bottom of the board it can usually be ignored, but there appears to be something going on in the background I'm afraid might be harmful to anyone who isn't running an ad blocker. There's no way the system should be generating 1000 ads or more over the space of 20 minutes.

I have a screenshot of what it looks like when it doesn't load that I can email if you think that would help.

Thank you.
