Odd Advertisements

Am I the only one getting odd advertisements? Some are slightly inappropriate, scam-like, and other odd ones (for instance, one that wants me to modify the software on my iPhone), etc. I used to get ads that were relevant to my interests for the most part (like fish, cell phone companies, etc.).

Is there any way I can change the kind of ads that come up?

Thank you.

They're based on your internet browsing. Not a whole lot you can do about it. If they're really inappropriate, I think we can ask that they not display that ad, but in general, it's based on what you view online.

Oh okay. All I do on the computer is Aquarium Advice, some email between family members, and aquarium youtube videos (I have Yahoo for email, I think). I bet Yahoo is doing something to my ads or something of the like.

Thanks a lot for your help!
