Some specifics would be helpful, plus reporting what you see that is objectionable.

We do take this seriously.

Up until an hour ago, when I downloaded a app to block the ads. Degrading pics of big chested woman. PLUS other very strange things. Bad enough to make me find a cleaner app.
Not what I expected on a hunting forum.

Plus all the add garbage would kill my battery. No problems on another forum, no junk adds like here.
It was better before, and wasn't even a member then.

While I typed those 2 posts. MY cleaner app says it blocked 50 adds. Pretty bad guys.

Maybe some of these ads you guys are seeing are from past viewing searches....I'm not seeing anything/inappropriate...maybe it on your end!

No, it's this site now.
I don't appreciate what your implying.
Before the change in format all I would see were ads from Duluth trading. Plus I'm on 2 other forums. ALR forum and xbow nation. Neither of them have any garbage like hpa does now.

Let me guess, the moderator is a paid position now.
I guess it's true, you can say whatever to whoever from behind a keyboard.

Also who would somebody report a moderator comment to?

You simply hit the report post icon (triangle with exclamation point) icon on the post. The forum software tells the relevant people about it. You don't message or directly contact a specific person.

I understand your frustration. I have brought the topic to the moderator/admin team for discussion and to see what we can do about it. I'm a mod, not an admin, so I don't have access to the whole system to know if the ads can be managed or not. I do admin/run another forum, and I have zero control over ad content, which I'm not really happy about, but that forum is on free software, so we deal with it.

One suggestion while we sort this out--- AdBlocker is a great add-on to your browser. I'm not saying we shouldn't try to deal with the issues presented here, but in the mean time, it might help you alleviate the issue on your end.

And to address your implication--- no, mods are not paid. My wife can verify that!

I also am struggling with the ads on this site. Often check when at work and it makes it look like I'm up to no good.

Lots of click bait, scam news, and half dressed women. I just try not to scroll to the bottom of a page much.
Kinda sucks...
