Ad banners in this forum....it's a little creepy

Post by GreatNPowerfulOz on Sat Oct 22, 2011 4:01 pm

I've noticed that the add banners tend to advertise things on Yahoo that I've recently searched for on Google..such as camera battery chargers, etc...and it's really kinda creepy. This site is data mining its participants.

Perhaps that's why it's free. This site is, after all, a capitalistic venture designed to generate a profit.

Hmm I haven't really noticed. Right now, I'm getting a banner for some sort of skin cream for stretch marks (LOL?), which I have never in my life searched for on the internet ... nor have I ever been pregnant to need stretch mark creams. Yesterday I was getting ads for a college offering "Life Experience" degrees (more LOLs?) and I was thinking to myself, "How can you get a degree in life experience?" Nor have I searched for schools ... I already have two undergrad and a graduate degree. If I went back to school, it would be to get my doctorate, but I'm not planning on doing that any time soon, so I haven't searched for colleges.

Clear your cookies. I did, and immediately the ads for a website I vested today stopped. It's now back to "generic" ads.

Things that need stopping

Post by whitbyforklift on Thu Feb 16, 2012 10:59 pm

The British way of life as been kicked up the (USA) butt by the media trying to be (USA)
This as got to stop.Love them guys over the pond,but we are not them.
Phone calls,texts,Emails and TV adds about the stuff you were charged by your bank, that you did not ask for.
The accedent you had and not yet claimed for.
Free comps on line that when you enter one they take money out of your mobile credit.
Why is the govenment doing nothing to stop this?
The adds for quick lones with APR in the never land of paying it back.
Why is the govenment not doing anything to stop it?
