An ad-blocker installed on your browser will fix that issue.  I didn't know this site have ads like that.  Good thing my ad-blocker is on.

I've seen several ads like that. I'm guessing that the placement of ads go by keywords, while not factoring in the context behind them. It's still a targeted audience fail though. Razz

It just had me cracking up, so I thought I'd share it. Wasted their money on that one!

I guess I think of antisexuals as pretty heavy-duty and serious, and we're all sitting in our fortress around the campfire with our knobbed boots and battleaxes, talking, and in skips this unwitting ad doing the rounds:

"Hey guys want to buy some sex..."

"WHAT."

"Oh shi..." *ad backs away very carefully*


Okay, so maybe I have too vivid an imagination.

That'd make a great idea for a forum game!

I still get email spam for "enhancement" drugs and for some reason Google seems to think I have a romantic interest in women from Asia.

About half the ads I see here are for dating sites. Advertisers are failing a lot here!

When their profession is centered around attracting as many idiots to their business as possible, I can't say I'm surprised to see their own idiocy.
