I was on a thread about hearing loss. Advert for hearing loss (can't actually remember the details). On a thread about recycling, ad for "Eastern Waste Disposal". I know how it works but it is really really effective and rather creepy. <waits for advert for psychic in the North East, specialising in cynics>
I hate this. DH always knows when I've been online shopping (even if it's just the window variety or I'm thinking about buying something) because related ads pop up in the sidebars of all our shared web bookmarks. Grrrrr...it's like a portal to my BRAIN.
Yes, we know the Google ads do look at bit odd sometimes (to say the least). But they do make a wee bit of extra dosh for us - that comes in useful in keeping the site running and paying for new servers and stuff - so we hope you don't mind them too much.
If ever you see an ad that's truly distasteful and out of place - and we'd class penis extension ones in that category, for sure! - do please let us know, and we'll block them.
