    Ads are fine...just reminds me of what I've recently purchased. Tickets on Qatar Airways, another pair of Costa sunglasses, and flowers for Mother's Day. You'd think the ads would be for similar but other vendors to try to get you to purchase more of the same. Or maybe they don't know you bought...just that you visited the page.

    I understand that these targeted ads are there for a reason, but don't really pay much attention to them anymore. Just a chunk of compromised screen real-estate along with the package of free content.

    And dammit, I know I have researched the issue to death when the ads still want to sell me books for the coming economic collapse. Those ads ain't that smart. Perhaps a better indicator of "get a life FFS"...

    No but thats picked up off the 'thailand'..

    Basically the algo works like.. site content.. page content.. user history (searches, sites visited, etc).. And then puts a custom banner up per user. Its not that I put up a banner and every visitor to the site sees it.
