Angry Who do I talk to about offensive ads on DS?

Where or who do I talk to about offensive ads that DS is having on the website? I don't mind having a bunch of ads on here but when it comes to flashing a woman's almost naked boobs in front of the screen with my children around, that's offensive. I'm referring to the "True" ad that seems to be popping up on every screen that I navigate to. I love this website, but I am not on a trashy website where I'd expect to be seeing this stuff. I don't even understand why it would be on a website where the majority of viewers are not only women, but women with children/families. It would be nice for DS to have more discretion on whom they let advertise on their website.

The one that has a young woman laying on her side sucking a lollipop. She points at her breasts that are half covered and the IM at the bottom asks "Do you want to talk?" It's supposedly a live feed of her asking if you want to see more and chat.

I see it almost every time I navigate to a page.

It's a banner on the right-hand side of the page. Maybe everyone's ads are different, but it's definitely on my pages.

I don't have any ads on the right hand side, just middle left from all the sponsors.

Re: Who do I talk to about offensive ads on DS?

??? I am asking because I see a lot of flashing ads at the homepage (DS sponsors) but I DO NOT SEE any woman like you described. I am just curious.....do you see ads, I can't see?
Or is this ad in a DS member signature?? Or inside on of the many forums??
(that was for zabibaby....I am just curious)
