How Intuitive are the Banner Ads?

For weeks now the banner ads have been trying to get me to hook up with Hot Asian (Voyager Forum, SHUT UP!) ladies, but now this morning the banner ads are suggesting I should spend my twilight nuzzling up with male gay millionaires.

THAT'S INSANE!

I don't care about money.

Re: How Intuitive are the Banner Ads?

Apparently, there are always gorgeous Russian women looking for me. Whenever I see that, I start looking around but can't find any. The internet is lying to me. That's probably OK with my wife, though. I don't think she'd be happy if I found one.

^True that; it's all lies on the internet - whatever product you buy, it won't grow any bigger

^I'm sure they have a product to grow one (well, at least that's what they'll say)

There's a higher probability they will be selling some device, cream or "supplement" that would make two other things grow.

Banner ads? You know, I am so automatically on"ignore" that I have to consciously focus on them to see them.

Hanes wants me to "go online for details" on their deals. Where do they think I am right now?

Would be nice if other sites were forced to deal with banner ads advertising TrekBBS
