Default Ads gone wild? Anything goes?

I just deleted an ad on the front page that prominently featured a nude woman.
Not long before that, I deleted an ad by an extremist political group.

Is a hobby website really an appropriate place for stuff like that?

Women in bikinis, Russian girls looking for love.....and lots of B&H ads. No nudes or extremist nut-cases......yet. Hopefully, my 85 year-old mom won't encounter any of that, when she occasionally looks at my pictures.

Since I posted the complaint, the ads have been milder. Right now it's Ziploc bags and a chain of furniture stores.

EDIT: A couple hours ago, I deleted and "reported" a sleazy ad no less than 6 times. Google would remove it from one spot, but it would just reappear in another spot. A lot of good "reporting" an ad does!

Nude women, yes. Political bullshit, no.
