I thought reporting an ad just went straight to DeveloperMedia
Well, given that Developer Media is under our CodeProject Solutions umbrella you're correct. We started Developer Media to provide advertising services to sites just like our and I'm committed to ensuring the ads don't suck. Lots do, and that bugs the daylights out of me, but Yuriy (Lead Dev / Product Manager at DM) is on a mission and he takes the reports very seriously.
Do you prefer just reporting an ad once?
Report as you see fit. If an ad bothers you slap it down. The last thing I want is for your time on CodeProject or anyone using Developer Media ads to be annoying.
It seems I have not been paying attention to what my own options are for opting out of ads . About an hour ago I was going to report an ad for Discover credit cards, but instead of the little [x] box there was an arrow that popped out information saying the ad had been chosen based on my browsing history. I clicked a link that took me to a Ghostery opt out page and after opting out of all the listed sites, I browsed around on CP without seeing any off-topic ads.
I have now also gone through the Google AdChoices and opted out of all that stuff and so far it looks like it is working.

Turns out there is a link on the page you linked to that reads, "Suggest a survey." It ends up taking you to an email form. I have used it several times and have never had any feedback so I can't verify it actually does "suggest a survey." Then again, my ideas for a survey could have just been too boring for CP.

Nah - it was carefully selected for a near-as-dammit straight paper path so I could get heavy paper through it. This one works very well with 260gsm photo card. but poorly with anything under 90gsm (my minimum letter paper)
It's ability to print on perforated rolls was not considered important at the time of purchase!

I am facing an email confirmation dilemma on my account, and hope that a sysadmin could kindly assist with the matter.
There is a red notification on my CodeProject dashboard when I log in, saying "Your email address needs to be confirmed." (because I updated my email address under "My Settings").
When clicking on the notification, the "My Notifications" page is displayed, but the page is empty, there is no hyperlink on the page with which to perform the confirmation.
I did not receive a confirmation email in my inbox either, with which to perform the confirmation.
It appears that my account is in some sort of error state, thus leaving it in a condition where the Login email address needs to be confirmed, but the notification mechanism to do so, is not fully operational.
Thanks Chris, that makes sense! However, I changed two (now four) posts nearly 48 hours ago so that the link says <a href="http://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/BlogArticleList.aspx?amid=3453924" rel="tag" style="display:none">CodeProject</a> and these articles have not been pulled yet.
