When I started turning off the various doo-dads and widgets that I normally have activated while surfing the net, I saw lots of Airstream-related ads.

As I enabled more ads, I also saw one for Nexxus beauty products and a nice big banner ad for... drum roll, please... Exclusive Thong Panties.

Neither of those are quite my style, though the latter was pretty amusing. Serves me right for mentioning Spanxx in my posts above.

The ads that show up for me are from web searches I have done. Apparently this website tracks other websites I visit to know what I am interested in.

I guess I haven't surfed the web lately.
Ad at the top: Atlantis resort-
Ad on the right: Toyota Mirai hydrogen car-
Ad at the bottom: Century 21 real estate-
I haven't visited any of these sights and I'm not interested in any of these products.
All other ads are Airstream or rally related.

LOL! This thread is hilarious. A good break from tow vehicles and hitches...

For what it is worth, I hate the targeted adds as well. Sure, I only have Electric Generators Direct advertising to me right now, but it's the concept of digging in my computer for information and then using that for marketing that bugs me.

How are we SELECTED for these advertisements?

"He used this weird old trick to . . . "

In the good old days of college almost forty years ago it was fun to fill out the Readers Service card from the back of your girlfriends copy of Vogue or Cosmopolitan and order stuff for your frat brothers as the mail room had all the privacy of a men's barracks shower.

The free training bra was the best. Always wondered about what was to be trained. In the dear departed 1970s no training seemed necessary. They swung in rhythm or they didn't. It was only a matter of periodicity, and there was always a geek at hand to help you do the calculations.

A close second was the Kotex Starter Kit from your little sisters subscription to teen magazine.

Requesting spiritual help via mail for an interview was a howl. Remember Werner Erhard and EST? Them boys didn't take no for an answer once you called that brother down the stairs and left him to it.

Too bad can't do this with ads. All in fun, of course.

My Air Forums page is haunted by everything I have looked at, and especially everything that I have put on my "wish list" on the Walmart.com and Amazon.com websites. At least I have gotten rid of gun ads that followed me initially when I started on Air Forums last fall.
