Starting a few days ago I started seeing ads that I felt were not relevant to my audience so I added the domain to my blocked list. Problem is, the ads kept showing. So I was looking at the ad code more closely and I could see code that said domain_PSA_AD the domain is an advertiser I do NOT want to block. So what I figure is going is a big national advertiser is somehow paying to run these public service ads for a totally different domain, but the only way to stop them would be to also block the big national advertiser's domain. Crazy right?

Didn't they retire PSA ads? You could try to hunt down the specific one in ad review center.

Hi levo - that's what's odd too....these ads do not show up in the ad review center. I've looked multiple times over several days so I can't block them that way either. So strange.
