The Ads On This Site

I am curious if each of us see the same ads here. Are the ads appearing for all of us, or are they custom suited to who we are or what equipment we use.

For example, I use a Mac. I have been since the mid 90s, even before Steve took too much acid and started making fluorescent computers.

I consistently see the following banner ad:

I suspect it is due to some program the site uses to detect our settings, whatever they may be.

So, anyone else getting those cure herpes ads?

The other day when I was in the Downtime and people were talking about Twilight winning some awards at the MTV Movie awards, my ads started turning into something about Justin Beiber

I don't see any ads at all. My browser plugins block them automatically.

I wish I could add a plug in... but this is a work laptop and I've already cut loose and downloaded Google Chrome, which I'm sure my IT dept is going to be furious about

My browser is even blocking them in your posts. I had to quote it and plug it in my browser to see what it was.

Maybe you should have cleaned your Mac and you would not have herpes..

Say my name
I typically always see medical ads and, like, weight-loss stuff. Sometimes food ads. I don't understand why, though, I've never looked up weight-loss supplements ever. Nor do I research food, except at work I'll look up local restaurants for guests. But that can be on any one of 4 computers.

Usually I'm baffled by the ads. But I ignore them mostly.

We could get rid of them altogether but everyone/someone would have to pony up some dough.

I don't remember, how much did Zetaboards charge to get rid of ads permanently from the board and basically make it, "your board"?

It's been awhile since I ran one...

$80/year. Their regular ad removal rate though is $0.18 per 1,000 page views.
