Angry Puppy mill ads back again

I mentioned this a while back and was told removing them was taken care of. It was a while back it happened, can't find that thread or I would have bumped it. Well they are back. Theses people have a website for every state. Purebredbreeders they call themselves amongst other things.

Purebred Breeders - America's Top Dog Breeders on PurebredBreeders.com

Massachusetts Puppies For Sale - Top Breeders

I took a screen shot. Please make them go away, thank you. -Steve.

I also saw this first thing this a.m., which surprised me because I use Google Chrome and Ad Block Plus. I cleared cookies and updated ABP and it went away.

I suspect the heated puppy mill discussion here has tagged us for puppy mill ads by Google ads.

Sent a PM to Admin with link to this thread.

Anne, I only saw it because I intentionally turn off ABP once in a while. Otherwise I never see an ad.

I was surprised to see it myself because I thought ABP was on. My computer has a mind of its own.

I am unable to do anything about ads. The best you can do is like you did by sending a PM to Admin with the link to the ad so he can pass thins along.

Thanks!

It was still there this a.m. on Chrome, so I added yet another filter to ABP and it went away. It never shows up on FF.
