Ashley Madison?

When I see ads here because I'm not logged in or something, mine are almost always video game related. So, uh, what have you been up to?

Which is strange now that you brought targeted ads up... I've never used a dating app/site on my phone.

Nothing, I swear! I usually get conspiracy ads... like a book to buy.

But I remember that Ashley Madison site is where wedded people cheat. I didn't agree with that. I don't blame ATS, I may have been targeted by faulty means or ATS did let an ad run.... I dunno.

They're called "targeted ads" for a reason. They simply do not happen "accidentally." You don't have to 'go there' to trigger them. You simply have to visit another site that Ashley Madison thinks is compatible to what they are selling, perhaps a "partner" of theirs, perhaps something of "similar interests." There is no such thing as a coincidence.

I didn't think ATS did targeted ads for some reason. The ads always seemed sponsored. Religious, conspiracy, military flashlight, etc...

Hahahahaha

I get ads for guitars and d'artagnan because I look at guitars and food.

You get ads for Ashley Madison because you like to spank the monkey and tell thousands of people about it. Nice Transparency, refreshing.

Edit

best response



well what happens is that when you join the site, the MIB who are assigned to monitor you, pass on relevant info to the owners and then they tailor ads specifically to you.

Also have you noticed the Black Helicopters yet?
