I decided to post this now that it's been four days and nothing has changed. When I check my ad reveiew center for targeted ads, I'm getting 12 or more new advertisers UNRELATED to my website (teeth whitening, spa treatments, etc.), each day. I'm spending a lot of time checking and blocking these ads from showing. Is anyone else seeing this since Nov. 1, or is it my issue?

FWIW, when this came up a few days ago, I changed my settings to not allow any ads from all these 3rd party networks.
I haven't noticed any changes to the ads I typically see on my sites and I haven't noticed any changes in my revenue/numbers.
It's easy to go with what AdSense tells us and assume that having more advertisers bidding will result in more money for us - but that's only true if one or more of these new advertisers are willing to bid more than the advertisers who were there first.
