I'm thrilled to see that entities are paying for advertising space.

That said, am I the only getting "Thank you Donald Trump" ads? It would certainly not be based on my internet use.

Is it because the word "Bible" appears in this site's name? (And we know how deeply committed Trump is to the Bible)

Unfortunately, I am not recieving any ad space. This is quite possibly due to being the only South East Asian in the forum, much less a specific country.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff

The last ad I saw was for a Glock-19 handgun. I think it was because the algorithm noted I wrote several posts referencing Revolver that day.

A few weeks back I got an ad for a dating app encouraging me to "Meet conservative women!" Dunno how accurate their targeting is.

Very very disturbing. How does an algorithm decide this is an ad for me?
