Just like VEF , image hosts - all of them , have no control over the 3rd party Ads

No doubt some will be under aged while others just have that 12 year olds face & body

Far bigger issues in the real world which nobody can stop
Desperate people will always be exploited if they have no alternatives

If they really concern - block them all or just the individual site

ad-block plus was the first but others have followed

script blockers

no script
script safe (chrome)

How does that work? Someone registered and owns the the domain name pixhost.to and therefore must control what ads are displayed on the site and earns money from those adds. It's not Google Ads or anything like that - these are big splash screens that appear when you're viewing a gallery and you need to close the screens to continue viewing the gallery.

If they are displaying adverts loaded with links to videos of what look suspiciously like under age people, then it is a real world problem and it is exploitation!!!!!!!

Even if it is just adults that look young, I do not wish to visit an imagehost that displays such adverts.

It was a good image host but I'm going nowhere near that site now.

Sadly it is a common business practice to rent out advertising space of websites to ad networks. There is just a snippet of code embedded on the site site that loads the ads from another source. There are many ad services out there, some are less reputable than others. The website then has no or little control of the ads.

It sometimes happens that even legit ad networks distribute malware. This happened once to a German news network. This is the reason one should never browse the web without ad blocker, even if you only visit reliable sites. Ad content is just uploaded by advertisers without manual inspection or further checking.

I always criticize embedding 3rd party stuff you have no control of. Not only ads but also user tracking like google analytics or social networks like facebook and twitter buttons. These are all security and privacy risks.

Illegal content of that nature you have encountered is usually not online very long. Even the most shady advertiser do not want that.
