    offensive ad.

    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

    I like it!

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

    Re: offensive ad.

    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? (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?

    It must be due to someone else using your computer.

    Re: offensive ad.

    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:

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

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

    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.
