That is true, I have a habit of modding game's to hell and back so often visit a modding site called the Nexus and when I come over to ATS on the
same session or vice versa I have all these unpalatable add's would suddenly begin to pop up, one of which was to me highly offensive as it seemed to
show what looked like a teenager in a sultry pose but then I noticed it was from a heavily modded version of Skyrim and a computer generated character
- definitely a perverted creation though so I still complained to google with no effect, other time's when I was researching a point due to the
topical Current Islamist terrorist threat's the advert banners would instead suddenly pop up with images of attractive and often suggestively dressed
woman and telling me to meet Arab lady's, not to offend them I am not in any way adverse to attractive lady's regardless of race, creed or religion if
they want to pay for the beer but I really can't see them doing so and so that was also not up my street.
I actually now find the pathetic advert's quite stupid and also funny if annoying as hell so yes you have a point.
It is down to both tracking cookies and tracking software including non local at the google/bing end on there servers that monitor were you go, what
you do and all for market research and marketing or so we are supposed to believe.
Site's like ATS can only really make money by selling advertising space so that is not a big thing and many site's such as the Nexus sites were I
download and upload mod's are actually very sensitive to if you have a pop up blocker enabled as they make there revenue mainly from advert's as
The day's of the old internet were free sharing, collaboration and even free news were all present are now long gone, copyright lawyers trawl it for
anyone and everyone to prosecute for the slightest infraction, pervert's both openly and secretly trade there wares and dating site's are vying to
take stupid people's money left, right and centre, ahh I miss the older net very badly.
