THAT is the pain in the butt aspect of that ad. It does initiate in mute mode, but it plops in the middle of the healines and I can't close it/get around it :evil:

My one-person fan club!! :P

Seriously, things have improved.
The ad blocks the news page for just a few seconds.
And the audio crap has disappeared!!

No ads today on my front page, but to the left and right of the message board are Asics ads that include flashing that might cause some epileptics to have a problem.

I'm looking at ads to the left and right of what I'm typing right now. The one on the right has pictures of 8 young ladies that I could meet if I clicked there (and presumably paid something--I'm not going to find out). The ad does not mention their religion, but none of them have any kind of headdress.

I haven't been surfing any sites that would remotely lead a marketer to think I was interested in meeting young women (or young men, for that matter).

me neither... i mean, this is why i don't understand google, it's supposed to be so smart and everything... but they keep pushing products i don't want and women on me... what a waste. (when i check my hotmail account, i used to get "date women over 50" ads...).

on the other hand, when i surf yahoo news, they know i'm a secret muslim fag commie abortionist 'cause i keep getting obama 2012 ads...

today i got an ad for "meet afghani women" (on another site, not TFN).

the google ads people are getting desperate, i guess... i have gotten before ads to meet african women, muslim, ukrainian, chinese, russian, filipino, dominican, brazilian, colombian etc.

on FB, i get suggestions to like all sorts of rightwing and tea party wacko organizations... i guess the google ads, fb and other internet giant companies are not very good at figuring out my interests! LOL.
