    The ad for "Free 2018 Gun Laws Map" violates the posted rules of this forum and should be removed.

    Gun Laws are a hot political issue in the USA.

    Keep VIDEOHELP free of politics.

  2. You want to ban it because you do not like that advertised product, not because it is a hot political issue. Let's be straight here.

    Most of the ads I see are related to shopping websites where I've recently browsed. That being said I have seen political advertising at VideoHelp from Google AdSense (rarely), but I haven't seen this one yet. I'm not sure these ads can be stopped if Google is choosing them based on our searches.

    A funny thing happened while I was writing this. I went back to VideoHelp's home page for a moment and I saw an ad for an organization which has a stated political orientation, which is really odd because it doesn't match my political orientation or that of the news sites I've been visiting.

    [Edit]@bendixG15 I just saw the ad you are writing about. It is for an organization, not somebody selling a map. There is no reason why I'd be seeing this ad either based on my searches.

    1. Ad is visible only for US people.
    2. To not see Ad's you can use widely available adblockers.
    To be honest large part of world can only dream about US constitution that provide US People right to remove tyranny of the bad government - Your country is unique and founded on People will not government oppression (even if with time you more or less voluntary give-up your citizen rights to bureaucracy and corruption).

    Agreed, nuke it.
    It's probably some shady ad, trying to slip by normal rules of the ad network.

    Reading Google's policy (available via the AddChoices button at the top left corner of the ad), thread titles may be to blame for the political ads!

    Google says:
    This ad is based on:
    The information on the website you were viewing
    The time of day or your general location (like your country or city)
    I don't use an AdBlocker at VideoHelp because I don't want to deprive the site of the revenue, so, I tried clicking on the "x" at the top left corner of the ad, and then clicked "Stop seeing this ad" plus one of the reasons offered to me, to see if I could avoid political ads that way. After I finished I was treated to an ad asking me to vote on impeaching ___, plus, a different ad from the same gun rights group.
