For example, we currently have in the whitelist and that's how their 'acceptable' ads looks like:
Two pictures on the left are fine, but half naked old guy and that tumor on the right are clearly not.
Here is another unpleasant sample:

Hi Lain_13,

I have serious doubts that those are Criteo ads. Can you please provide steps to reproduce them, like urls and your browser settings?

Latest Ad block plus is no longer blocking anything properly.

I don't watch porn but to test your Ad block Plus here you go : ... il_taissia

Huge Penis enlargement pictures on the right.

And here ads on the right top side :

These were previously blocked.
Those surely weren't allowed by the Acceptable Ads whitelist; go to (EasyList forums) to complain about content that should be blocked but isn't.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.

The other you mention seem to have more to do with Google's privacy policy than with Adblock Plus.

The program defines criteria for the content, size and positioning of ads on a web page that are deemed to be acceptable for display even when the AdBlock Plus ad blocker is enabled. Once the ads on a website have been submitted and approved by the program, those ads will appear to visitors using AdBlock Plus. The displaying of acceptable ads, however, is only supported by AdBlock Plus, and may be turned off by users that do not wish to see any advertising.

YouTube advertising should be allowed if the ad runs for less than 10 seconds.

YouTubers rely heavily on ad revenue and a 10 second ad is a small price to pay for the content some content creators post.
