Don't mean to complain.. but I thought the dating ads were turned off?

This one offended me, because it kind of stings to have google ads tell me that I'm old :laugh:

I like it! :D

But this is a family site and that is not appropriate.

Also, I love Homage clothing, especially since they make a ton of Reds- and Ohio-related stuff. And yet they keep pimping stuff like this to me. Am I allowed to report this as offensive? :devil: (I'm kidding boss! I don't want to waste your time. It's just funny. And completely creepy that all the advertisers know exactly where I am.

Yeah it's amazing that the ads on the site completely link to things I have been looking at online...dare I ask the complaintant if the offensive ad somehow could be explained based on web history?

Boss, I found inappropriate content in my Google search history. That is entirely unrelated to you or this board and I'm fully aware that I searched the offensive content myself but I just wanted to follow REDREAD's example and be open about this stuff.

I don't know what it is about this one, but something kind of gets under my skin about it:

It must be due to someone else using your computer.

I got it last night on my Kindle. No sites I've been to to cause it. Some ads are just there, I guess.

I watched the 30 for 30 on him. Tragic story.

Guess I'll report this one.

EDIT: I can't figure out how to post it, as its an ad, not a still pic, so I can't open in new tab for the URL. Anyway, its for some game called "Wartune" or something similar, and features a scantily-dressed animated woman, with the flashing words "You deserve an orgy today!"

EDIT 2: My bad, didn't realize a word I had in there would activate the word filter.

There was once an ad that popped up in a thread that discussed Ryan Freel, that used the word "Hustle". The ads were text only ads for Hustler magazine subscriptions.

I can see people thinking that I'm a pervert, but Marc getting the ad proves my innocence :)

Getting ads for Jillian Michaels weight loss programs now. So I guess Redszone is calling me fat?

I also get linguistic advertisements.

(Completely obsessed with the ad generators now.)

I just got that ad. My wife tells me I'm old everyday now I have ads doing the same thing. :laugh:

On the good part I saw an ad for BCubbs book.

Those ads support RedsZone.

I understand, but if someone doesn't want to see these ads, they can always DL the extension.

For what it's worth, I actually got a sweet deal by clicking on an ad for a free dining plan at Walt Disney World for my wife and I's anniversary trip this November! :thumbup:

I think it's possible dating ads are one of the default ads that googleads and others use. I have seen ads like that immediately after I clear my browsing history.

Right now, the ad I am getting is for google adsense

I just got an ad for heartburn medication featuring Larry the Cable Guy. Nothing reminds me of heartburn more than watching one of his movies.
