Are the Google ads in SP adequate ?

It makes me smile, but on the other hand I'm a bit sad to see that these kinds of keywords generate such ads based on the must vulgar stereotypes...

What do you think ? Is there any way to filter the ads ?

Sure, just install firefox and adblock. I haven't seen an ad in a long time.

An add-on to Firefox. It works great. Warmly recommended.

Adblock works in Flock, Seamonkey, Orca, and Safari for Windows and also in the now defunct, but very fast Netscape 9 (but you have to go through some trouble to install updates to it, I'm just a Netscape fan). Google Chrome plus has an "Adsweep" that is just as effective, and Opera accepts an adblock look-alike. All give you a window completely free of ads. (You can turn them off, if you want to see some Ukrainian beauties!)

You can adjust the options from the Add-Ons menu. You have to select a list which keeps all the popups, which will be blocked. The lists are updated regularly and sometimes this process takes a bit of time.
