I was browsing physics.SE And I noticed a pattern in the ads carousel.

It started with a Pillow ads then it escalated quickly :
A pillow ads

Sex performance Ads

Sex improvement drugs

enter image description here

The carousel was fast I just had the time to get the link before it switch.
At the end I was a bit shook but it's ok. Next add will help:

    Really you guys should get a VM with a french Windows. I make daily reports, on case I collect in less than 10 minutes. This one was longer as the ads keeps changing for something fun. – xdtTransform Sep 24 '19 at 13:13

    I heard that before... and as you can see, whatever you do to "address this" has no effect on future ads, where "future" is even couple of hours from this time. Sorry, but this is plain useless. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Sep 24 '19 at 13:25

    @ShadowTheCoffeeWizard sorry you feel that way. However, I still appreciate your feedback. Have a wonderful day. – Terry Guyton-Bradley Sep 24 '19 at 13:43

    As a side note - I do appreciate the [staff] pin in user profiles, but perhaps it would be nice to have one of those in post cards, too – John Dvorak Sep 24 '19 at 13:44

    @TerryGuyton-Bradley to make it clear, nothing personal here. You do your job just fine and I admire that. Problem is in the top levels who decide to work with problematic ad providers. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Sep 24 '19 at 13:48

    What I want to know is how this happened. Was a moderator asleep at the console when these ads came in for approval? Did SE get hacked by a rogue advertiser? – Robert Columbia Sep 24 '19 at 14:19

    @RobertColumbia most likely outsourcing to a dubious party. Anyways it confirmed my believes that the french are always up to dubious practices, even at work ;) – Luuklag Sep 24 '19 at 15:03
  • @ShadowTheCoffeeWizard, while I also experienced this "frustration". About 6 hours after this post, All bad ads where removed. Only ads now are either IBM/Microsoft or StackOverflow related – xdtTransform Sep 27 '19 at 9:56
  • @xdtTransform well for me it's deeper than just frustration. It's disappointment, and disbelief in the decisions made by SE. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Sep 30 '19 at 6:05
