We try to restrict any ad categories that we think are NSFW, but there is no way for a member to custom filter at the LQ-level at this time. That said, the answer unSpawn gave is valid approach (also, the more you post, the less ads you will see; up to a point where you will see none). -Mesanovich-, please keep in mind that all responses here at LQ should be constructive.
I recall a thread in which some folks strongly preferred a browser add-on and disdained a hosts file.
I like a hosts file because it's passive and is browser-independent.
I recently started to use "no script" type add-ons in my browsers, but that has less to do with ads than with that annoying Meebo toolbar that is quite the rage amongst U. S. newspaper sites. All the cool newspapers seem to be wearing it this season. YMMV.
