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.

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?

I’m getting ads for LinkedIn Marketing Solutions probably because I’m midway through writing a review for a Marketing book and have had a break. I’m also getting motor homes ads regularly because I had occasion a fortnight ago to help someone write a letter of complaint which involved looking for background on a company website selling them … Moral is clear your cache and internet browser history out more regularly. Creepy algorithms.

Happiness Is A Warm Gun ‘?

Have you been posting or searching online re the gunshots featured in ‘Oh Woman , Oh Why”?

Have you been googling John’s opening comments in ‘Come Together ’?

I did listen to Happiness Is A Warm Gun on Spotify at some point yesterday, but if that is enough to get it in my ads then that’s pretty creepy…

A suggestion or maybe a dealer is in your neighbourhood and is trying to stir up business. Times are hard out there with covid etc, every little helps.

 

Oh. 

Being a mod I should do the sensible thing and warn about the danger of drugs so here is Paul with a truly abysmal song about taking them. The song isn’t here to get you to think about the dangers of taking, just if you do we will tie you to a chair and play it on repeat until you vow to never do them again.

The amount of earwax removal ads are crazy! They show the earwax, yes, and it makes me lose my appetite!
