    Post Google Targeted Advertising

    I understand the need for the targeted advertising, and it's not glaring in your face overwhelming the rest of the page like so many other sites I've seen (and I even follow some of them on occasion, the ones that show up her actually do interest me sometimes).

    I've noticed that sometimes it's very blatantly reading from the pages it loads - for example, when viewing my Gold entry for the lite challenge, I hve "Gold stocks" "Mining cables" and "Printable Treasure Maps".

    I got to thinking about that, and now I'm wondering about something.

    Whenever I load the main forum page, I get a link to a site with Private Bedwetting Solutions.

    Is Google trying to tell me something??


    [edit] I just tried it again, it still does it!

    Not sure I get different stuff all the time or not, I pretty much just 'tune that stuff out'.

    I go straight to forums and I donate cos I like this place and I run adblock and never see ads anywhere. Anyone who wants my script is welcome - though you have to be a donor
