Do the ads for browsing 10,000 Asian Women Profiles go away if I'm a paid member?

The ads that appear are a direct reflection of what you have searched for in the recent past. So if you haven't been looking you might want to speak to the wife:)

I am getting the same ones, plus Russian offers as well. Not that I'm complaining but I can assure you I did not click on anything that should have brought these to my screen. But since they're there, I'll take #3,4,5,7 and 8. Guess I better click on a viagra add as well.

Might be BS!! on your computer, but that's how it's working on everybody else's. Things that I have done searches on in the past few days are what is advertised right now.

It's OK Ed, we have all done it. Nothing to get offended over.

BTW: Do you want me to read your PM for you?

In all honesty 90% of the ads I get are for things I have search in the recent past most of my ads are for guns or corvette accessories and oddly today I got an ad for Quilted TP I guess that's because you said I'm full of crap and I should be prepared:)

Actually, most of what I get has nothing to do with anything I would click on or search for. However I am getting a lot of drone advertisements along with the mail order brides. Guess that's how they're going to deliver them to me.

I think everyone is correct.
Your searches certainly help but for now, on a brand new computer at work, I'm getting a big mix of ads.
- The asian girl ad mentioned here
- Watches
- Tons of boats
- travel
- Keystone pipeline

I don't get any ads like that. As above all ads I get are related to stuff I click on the help the forum

Since it is a new computer I suggest clearing cookies, web sites etc. There were reports in past of Asian built computers being preloaded with junk.

In the upper right of the ad there is a triangle arrow. Check it and it opens up a site where you can control the targeting and privatization of the ads

Is it my imagination or are the ads growing and the content shrinking? It seems like I have twice as many ads as I used to. still 90% are of recent searches. Todays ads are for Corvette parts, Motorola two way radios which I just placed an order, drones which seem to keep going down in price I may soon have to buy one and Teamviewer which I just used two days ago and of course boating supplies.

Has anyone noticed it looks a bit like Les may have resurrected some of the marine parts/equipment store in the ads below? ( Boatstore.net based in Portsmouth, NH )

If that is the case, it's good to see.

Just to add a bit to the ads "issue". Its is NOT just what you click it is also what you SEARCH, and YES it can travel with you from one PC to another being you log in and Google recognize you are the same person even with a different ip address so wallah! You are being watched!

If you are on a company owned computer within a company's firewall you are probably going out into the internet through a proxy, so everyone (or many people) at your firm will look like they are all coming from the same IP address. Perhaps some of your co-workers are looking for companionship.

Personally, I never really noticed the advertisements at the bottom of the page until now (I have noticed the ads at the top of page), but it is mostly stuff I have displayed an interest in recently.

Ed- This is how you can get the valuable anchor. See link below.
We all get a lot of value from this site, plenty of projects ended well just because of the hundreds of Ro's that subscribe and throw in their valuable knowledge. I highly recommend supporting the site and getting an anchor.

Allen this is not Ed's first rodeo about buying an anchor at least not using this AKA. This was the topic of many a thread a few years ago back in the rainbow days. It's all good! I believe Ed is planning to meet us in Block Island this year just look for the guy in the bow rider, maybe we can talk about it over a few mudslides.

Ed/Bob I really have no issues with you but the games are getting old! You were more fun when you weren't in hiding:)
BTW I hired a landscaper so I have an old weed whacker if you want to experiment.
