Quote from: Sh@mbles on September 20, 2018, 08:03:22 AMAs for showing relevant ads, I can honestly say I've never asked Google to search for a well-lubricated, bald Taiwanese girl guide willing to give me a rub down, in my local area.Well, not recently...
Quote from: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on September 21, 2018, 12:41:51 PMGoogle actually tends to offer dating ads, gambling and other less family friendly stuff as a default, IF the site has allowed it, AND you don't have enough history for Google to work with. The different ad categories allowed or disallowed can be configured per website.

Quote from: Antechinus on September 23, 2018, 01:32:21 AMThat setting blocks Google ads for me (Pale Moon or Firefox). The container element for them will display, but there's nothing inside it. Dunno how it would be on IE because I never use it.
Quote from: CoreISP on September 24, 2018, 10:52:55 AMOh those algorithms don't necessarily look at what *you* searched for. It's far more complex.If you could screenshot that advertisement and right-click it (copy the link), and then send all that over to me would be great, then I can block it here.
Quote from: Dzonny on September 20, 2018, 07:12:07 AMBtw, when you're talking about ads, you think about one ad position under the "Advertisement" in the header, right?
