you will find it is serving adverts based on what you are talking about. Your iPad is eaves dropping on your conversations.

If you don't believe me, try it. With your iPad in hand, talk out loud about a totally random subject that you would not normally discuss, and see what adverts you get over the following 24hrs.

Yeah yeah, we’ve had this before.
I don’t search for Asian ladies or porn on my iPad or phone.

So if this place is going to start serving up these ads and the general feeling is

“It’s your fault” it’s going to get very quiet around here I reckon.

FFS, no, I can’t take a joke over this, as I don’t read the Daily Star either or peruse sites with scantily clad ladies down the side.

Joined the Flyer Club thing so that Ian gets a bit of support and this place doesn’t completely disappear, but what’s the point, if I can browse it for free? I’m not paying to be served soft porn

Its true: I ordered some (standard, nothing flash) knickers for 'er indoors from our Marks and Sparks online account (at her request I might add!!) one year and within a day I was flooded with shedloads of knicker ads from Y fronts to open crotch ladyboy stuff (now there's a mind-picture).

Went on for several months before they decided I wasn't a perv after all.

Now, C 571 where are these porn ads you speak of...................?
I'm not getting 'em.

Peter :lol:
Edit for clarity!

There certainly shouldn't be any inappropriate ads served. If you see something like that could you please take a screenshot or let me have the detail so that I can get it fixed.

Apologies.

Thanks

Ian

I use Ubuntu / Opera or Firefox. use "control + " to make the text fill the screen, have some sort of adblocker , never seem to see any adverts at all, unless I deliberately scroll.
no complaints about this forum in that regard.

All I ever seem to get is Visicover ads. Over and over and over again.

I did click on one once, to get a quote.

I've just had an ad for a plastic Airfix type kit for assembly/painting of a what can only be described as a fairly lifelike miniature Lolita in schoolgirl uniform .

Peter :oops:

Ian didn;t see your screenshot request in time I'll try if/when it comes up again
