Just done a quick search for DMOZ on Google here in the UK and was a little surprised that the AdWords ad is for Adult Toys.

Search on .com results in a related adword.
I tried it on .co.uk and sure enough, s*x toys.

Content match snafu?

Hoho - that matching is most certainly 'broad'...

Maybe might be one for Google to manually adjust :)

..Dmozzzzzzzzz.. ..zzzzz... ..zzzz...

Er.. ..Does anyone know where the reverse gear is on one of these?
