Are you missing an ad setting for the "Question and Answer Moderation" page?
I ask because on that page, I keep getting an ad at the top of the page for a local car dealership. Everywhere else the ads appear to be relevant.
If an ad's off-topic then the upper left hand corner should have a little "x". Take a screenshot of the ad, click the "x" and drag the screenshot onto reporting system and report it.
We used to be able to sniff what ads were being shown but they are making it extremely difficult. All we can do now is constantly refine and update the blocked advertisers and blocked categories (of which there are a zillion) list to ensure remnant ads (ads we show when our main sponsors are up to date) are relevant and on-topic.
Actually, there was no [x] in the upper left corner, just the AdChoices in the upper right corner.
Do you still have that [x] functionality? I don't see it on any of the ads right now.
Maybe it's a browser thing. I will check it out in Chrome.
Of course now it is not showing that stalking car ad anymore. It's as if they know...
Yeah, it looks like the little [x] is missing on the ads in my IE 11.0 on Win7 64-bit.
I see it in Chrome and Firefox.

The [x] is only there for ads that we identify as being from a remnant provider. The ads we server directly from our Developer Media division are hand picked (and trust me - I'm picky) and don't have the moderation option.
This member is a spammer: Member Profile[^] But he can't be reported as such because there is no report flag, or even a at-code for it to be next to.
If you click on "member profile" on the left, it takes you to this account: Member 14596 - Professional Profile[^] which is clearly unrelated and hasn't been used for years acroding to teh rep graph.
We can reject his posts, but we can't kick him!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
The "Submit" button in the "Have a Question or Comment" box seems randomly not to work. If I post a comment and press submit it sometimes just closes the box but the posted comment does not appear. I have tried resubmitting but to no avail. If I refresh the page the comment still does not appear: so where does it go? This is definitely random as I have posted comments that do appear immediately.
I think that many of us who spend the time trying to answer members' questions are frustrated by the current "Have a Question or Comment?" box. I know that I have significantly reduced the number of responses to questions due to frustration with the dialog box.
IMHO, what is needed is a dialog box something like the solutions dialog or like the box I used to enter this message. With such a box I could easily format my response without actually using the solution dialog box. This makes my response more professional.
Questions and comments are deliberately meant to be brief. Their purpose is solely to get more info in order to provide the best question. Ultimately the questions / comments would (in a perfect world) disappear once the main question is answered.
With this in mind, what specifically would you like to see changed?
