We use this site for Free so the cash to pay for the site has to come from somewhere. Just ignore the ads and all is good.

Ads are served up by google and we each see different stuff. Typically what you see is based on past surfing or perhaps geo-location.

If you see a specific ad that is a problem and contains adult content (for instance) we might be able to have it blocked but would need the url of the ad to make the request. Ads keep the lights on and so while you may choose to block them, please understand why we have them..

That is certainly sometimes true. I know I see ads for things I have searched for or looked at on other sites. But, I also see ads for things I know I have not searched for or looked at. That said, it is just the price of doing buisness so I ignore them.

I had similar concerns. I use Firefox and Adblock plus to remove all ads and have been very happy with the results.

I guess I've just been spoiled, usually don't go to sites that have ad bars. I'll live with it, but although I use Ali-Express, I don't search for stuff I don't want to see later

It goes to show just how deeply embedded and invasive these internet companies are in tracking our every move on the net. Our web surfing habits, shopping, searches, etc. are all being surreptitiously tracked by these big internet businesses. They've truly permeated and infested just about every aspect and nuance of what most people think would be their own private business. I realize that these parasitical businesses "pay the freight" for sites like these, but at what cost?

George Orwell, in 1948, who wrote the novel "1984", spoke even back then of how there was nothing personal that wasn't known by "Big Brother". The man was something of a prophet in his day. It has all come to pass...

Commercials are what make this site possible. While I don't appreciate the toe fungus ads, or the highly repetitive nature of the ads, I realize that they pay the bills.

This is likely the result of a high level of apathy, but I don't mind most of the ads, I even look at them from time to time. Mostly they reflect what I was shopping for most recently.

Joe Mac.... delete ALL of your "history" in your browser and most likely the "Lingerie" ads will go away. True, there will be other ads, but sometimes ads DO come from your search history and purchases online. Deleting the "temp" files will help resolve this.

Alot dont know it, but you NEED to go deep into your "user" on your hard drive and Windows "temp" and delete files there. I do IT and have seen tens of THOUSANDS of fragment files hanging out there. It slows your computer down as well AND can cause printing problems, etc. Of course, if you're not comfortable with that, you could get a comp. guru friend to do it for you.

Just a thought and a tip.... no charge!

Send a message via Yahoo to Darwin Maring
It seams to me that when I look something up on the internet I start getting adds for that item on the side of my screen on this and other sites.

Darwin, The sites you visit leave "cookies" on your computer. The software generating the ads reads those cookies and then decides what ad to display.
