It's not really intrusive, but I'm getting tired at looking at it. It's kinda gross. At least the lady with bright red skin and the face lift one are not showing up lately.

The solution is to install adblock and use Firefox obviously.

That's true, but I don't think website owners can do anything about it. Ads are probably randomly chosen.
Adblock may be a solution.

The banner, inline, and square-box ads on this site have all turned into blocks of Chinese-looking text for me. It doesn't alter on page refreshes either. I threw some of it into Google Translate and it just looks to be a series of random words and phrases (rather like those spam posts which are used to hide referencing links in forums). Anyone else seeing it too? Only happening on XDA, other sites show me the usual Google ads, AdChoices, etc.

I have been getting these "hot girls" ads for a few days now that it is really annoying. Especially when I am at work trying to browse XDA forums.

Here is the screenshot:

Does clearing your cache stop those ads?
