  1. As we checked, there seems to be no problem on our end. We advise to clean your browser history or check with another PC. Thanks!

  2. lovely full-size sedan! Btw, Yuga, is there a way that you can remove those NSFW ads? or at least give us a way to filter them or replace them with something more appropriate for the corporate users. It’s quite embarassing to have people glance at our screen seeing dating ads with racy photos.

    • @Oona

      anyone else using your machine lately?

    • @Yuga @Carl – Strange since I always use incognito and I never go to dating sites. FYI, those ads won’t even open their web pages on my machine due to our office firewall. I noticed these ads are coming from outbrain.

      @Anonymous – I can’t, stuff can’t just get installed in this machine due to restrictions.

    • Hi Oona! One of our Ad Networks uses some re-targeting technology that shows ads based on your browsing history. As such they may show ads that are exactly the same, similar or related to previous sites you have visited. We suggest using Incognito Mode to avoid the re-targeting.

    • Thanks for the heads-up! We’ll check on that one.
