    A while back I kept getting Amazon Fresh ads here, but when I clicked on them it turned out the items in the ads weren't available. I really wanted those organic eggs!

    Today I'm getting an ad for some kind of collagen face cream. The model in the ad is stunning. Maybe using this product will make me look like her.

    A college ad and an ad for the top 6 collagen powders.

    :lol:

    @_@ A rightwing . org ad (I am not an R), a Rite Aid ad and The Real Real ad.

    A very odd mix. :wtf: :lol:


    A Grimfrost ad (some kind of Medieval store, it kind of looks interesting), a H and R Block ad and an ad for AAA.

    An “EV testing solution”. I don’t own an electric vehicle and don’t know why I should test one anyway, soooo…

    $5200 gowns and $2900 handbags.
    I do not wear gowns.
    I do not carry handbags.
    And for me, $5200 is a used car, not an article of clothing.

    Ads? What ads? Where? Oh, should there be something in that blank grey area towards the top of the page between the menu and the thread title?
    Clearly, my personality is so toxic, adverts can't bring themselves to look..... :)

    It might be blocking Javascript.

    it isn’t: a lot of stuff (such as the quote function) on trekbbs uses JavaScript.

    No ads on my iPhone today either! I had them yesterday.

    I got one for a $130,000 watch yesterday. Considering that that's almost four years' salary for me, someone's demographic software is way off.

    And now I have ads for laptops…on the same device that didn’t have any ads this morning. Go figure.

    The watches keep getting pricier. The latest one was $340,000. That's a house, two in some places. For a timepiece, and one that doesn't self-update like the clock in my smartphone does.
