The only reason Macs aren't targeted is the relatively small number of them out there. The PC share is huge and ya spend your resources on the largest target audience, even if you're a hacker...

Glad I am not a "Winner" as they will soon be targeting my MacBook Pro software once you PC chumps give it up.
Firefox and Adbloc + have made a big difference in my response times.

We have identified the source of the problem. One of the companies who supplied us with ads that were supposed to be targeted toward Sailors is now on our Banned list. We apologize for any inconvenience.

ps: the banned ad supplier was also responsible for the infamous "You're a Winner" ad.
