Revcontent ads not blocked

I'm using iOS 10.0.2 and the latest version of Adblock Plus, but revcontent ads are not blocked in articles on for example.

These ads are not relevant to the articles, neither are they relevant to anything else I care about and they have clickbaity titles like 'Fungus destroyed my life, until I found this 2 minute trick', '12 famous people, who never wear a bra', 'If Clinton wins, nothing will change - Economic collaps imminent', 'Thailand Millionaires want this video banned. Too many getting rich' and other trash like that.
The photos they are using aren't much better.

That's exactly the kind of ad, I don't want to see. Is there anything that can be done about it?

Hey octabrain,

Thanks for reporting.
Could you send us a screenshot of the ads you see? You can use imgur for that.

Also, what is your device?
Hope to be able to help. Cheers!

Here is a screenshot of Revcontent ads running on and not blocked by Adblock Plus.

Some of these ads are borderline scams (eg: undisclosed rebill offers) and others lead to fake news sites. How is this garbage acceptable to Adblock (Revcontent is on the Adblock whitelist)?

The owner of Revcontent was also the subject of an FTC court order for using deceptive advertising:
