I'll tell you one thing for sure, the ones that are popping up on my screen are most definately not coming from my browsing.
However I know what you mean otherwise. I go to some obsure bussiness's website, and the next time I come to Airforums, the ad tell me what I was looking at.
I'm guessing you are not suffering what we are here in Colorado. Next time there's an election ,if Colorado is still a swing state, I'm heading somewhere else for about 4 months. The phone rings 20 times a day, every single commercial break has at least 4 political ads, our recycle bin fills up with junk mail before pickup day comes around. Can you imagine what could be done for our country if all that money was put to some productive use.
I was just hoping Airforums was a refuge from all this election BS, but this evening it started showing up here as well. I am going to lock myself in the bathroom until next Wednesday. However, I'll probably find political ads on the toilet paper. At least that's a fitting place for them.
