Re: Wtf?

I already have ad blocker activated on my iPad and I regularly clear my cookies. I was doing a lot of google searching yesterday but it had nothing to do with speed dating. Wireless KVM switches and video streaming server HW.

Yeah, MS, I do have a date with Stephanie tonight!!!

So I just re-cleared my cookies and the ads are for Allstate and Honda. I refresh my browser and get Mr. Rooter and Asian beauties. I double check and my google search history is blank.

Yikes!!! Smack has been complaining to the mods about getting "Transvestite Sailing Lovers." Told him none of the rest of us have seen it. Now we know. Maybe that explains his self portratit...

Re: Wtf?

Sadly, or greatfully, I don't see ads with firefox and adblock plus. Also nicely kills bogus pop-ups, and unders.

Re: Wtf?

You guys are harsh!!!
Some of the ads I get have nothing to do with my browsing history. Maybe they're just phishing...

Re: Wtf?

This is odd because I also continually get the "looking for mature men ad" & this computer or myself has never been to any place like that... At least not on this computer LOL

I did look at honda civic's a month ago & since have been getting bombarded with still looking at new hondas?
Scarey...

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!
