Re: How Intuitive are the Banner Ads?

Being a Christian of Jewish descent, who is also gay... I'd say the banner ads to "Meet Muslim women online" are NOT very intuitive!

Mine keep coming up with ads for how to apply for a pardon.

I'm starting to think this tinfoil hat doesn't work at all.

Re: How Intuitive are the Banner Ads?

All day I've been getting amazon ads for a pair of headphones I searched for (but did not buy). I think it's hit or miss. I'm not buying the headphones on there now because I'm annoyed by all the ads. I'll buy some at the mall...

Well, it's at least more relevant than trying to get me to hook up with hot local whatevers.

On another forum, we did a test where everybody kept posting in a thread about "fried rice" and using those words repeatedly, until all the banner ads starting being about Asian food, etc.

I don't mind that the live peep shows seem to be only with Asian Women.

4 thumb nails of 4 very attractive human beings.

but it kinda gets degrading that the advert then feels compelled to tell me how much each of these women weigh.

Mine are always Google ads based on recent searches
Last June I did a series of google searchs looking at mattresses prior to making a purchase. The very next time I came here the three ad spaces were all for mattress businesses.

Very creepy.

There are banner ads?

Seriously, I seem to completely ignore them, unless they are blocking my view. Not only here, anywhere.
So from my point of view, I don't think that advertisments on the interblag are of ANY value for companies.
