My site definitely does not have anything to do with dating but I just had 3 ads in a block of four (336x280 rectangle) show up for "dating" and "staying connected" in 3 countries outside the US (which is where I'm located - Nevada to be exact). Not even the words 'date' or 'connected' are anywhere on the page! Ack! This just makes no sense to me, unless the bot is indeed broken.

I've gotten some horrifically bad targeting today, too, so the bot might just be having a bad day. OTOH, if Google thinks your page really is about dating, blocking the dating ads you've got will only get you cheaper dating ads. You might want to fiddle with the content and then do something to get the bot back, instead.
Edit after reading ken_b's post: ...Or maybe the mediabot is on crack.

On my site, food related, the bot being on crackers would be suitable.
Something has gone bad with the targetting sytem. I had a section of my site that used to get good targetted ads and was genrating good revenue. Now, most of the ads are off topic resulting in a 1000%drop in eCPM , ouch :( I want my old ads back!
