Not trying to sound rude or anything - But is it possible to have certain ad servers blocked?
I haven't seen this ad myself so I can't say it's breaking a rule, but by the way it was put, it sounds as if it's NSFW.
rule #16; viewtopic.php?f=93&t=59201" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I'm not sure if it'd be possible to sort through which ads are okay and not though.

As far as I know, WH uses Google ads, and Google ads are based off of your search history and other similar factors. This means it'll show ads similar to things you have browsed in the past. Half naked anime chicks is prolly from one of those MMOs.

more info:
The ads you see may be based on the content of the website or app you’re viewing and your recent geographic location, among other factors. Other factors that determine the ads you see (based on your Ads Settings) include:

Types of websites you visit and mobile app activity on your device
Websites and apps you’ve visited that belong to businesses that advertise with Google
Your activity on another device
Other activity on Google services, like Google ads
Information in your Google Account, like your age range and gender
from google's ad FAQ

that is not something we can control unfortunately

edit:
yep, just checked. They are google ads so they are definitely based on one of the above factors.
