Thanks Merle. I was trying to find a button or link to "report ads" - but couldn't find anything.

Hello,

Sorry you ran into that issue. It helps us improve the quality of our advertising when members report problem ads. Please send an email to adreport@sparkpeople.com to notify our advertising team. If possible, attach a screenshot of the ad plus paste the URL of the ad (if you clicked on it) in the email. These screenshots and URLs are especially helpful in getting these ads blocked.

Have a good evening!

~ Merle

I know SP needs ads to bring in money. I do NOT have a problem with that.
But, I would think they would be a bit choosy about the ads. Especially malicious ads that tell users their Flash Player needs updating.. and then takes them to sites where malware is downloaded. While I'm sure there are many members who know better - there are many who don't. I have spent hours on family member pcs cleaning up such messes.

Please SparkPeople - block those malicious ads!!!
