why all the porno and "dating" ads?

I get literally only one sort of ad ever: porno "dating" spam ads. Nothing else. There are so, so many things an ADULT might actually be interested in, but no; that's all I get. They are saying it is based on my email content. Do you mean based solely on the spam I get? Well, can't be that. Where are the dying Nigerian rich nun ads? So... Why do you only send offensive ads? And I'm easy going I think. Target some people like that, and I don't see how an eight year old girl doesn't see those and you end up constantly in court in a neck brace trying to convince and angry dad and judge why you should be allowed to ever own a computer again. Can you explain that? How do you stay in business at all constantly pissing off your audience? Can I just get your address so I can explain to you what manners are? That might be easier.

I'd suggest you get familiar with AdWords Policies on Prohibited Contents, Prohibited Practices, Restricted Contents and relevant Editorial and Technical Requirements. A favorable user experience has always been a highest top priority for AdWords, since the very beginning.
