Inappropriate ads being served

Recently I've been getting ads served here that I consider inappropriate for work. It's only this site, and only in the last couple of weeks. I use this site primarily to keep up to date with the Surface for work purposes, and would appreciate not having ads shown that I would feel uncomfortable having my coworkers see.

Do you use one of the available ad blockers? AKA Tracking Lists in IE.

hmm, thought I posted this earlier but it was hanging as a draft..

Generally I do, but I am now using Edge so am at the mercy of what Microsoft provides. Still seems like a surprising suggestion from the admins of the site!

For adblocking in W10 with Edge the Hosts file method is all there is for now... nit it's effective.

See mvpshosts I just use the file from Hosts.zip without doing anything else. Rename the hosts file in windows\system32\drivers\etc\ to save it and paste the new one in. Done.

Can you get screenshots of the inappropriate ads. Also make sure you are logged in, you will see some ads as a guest that you won't see if you are logged in.
