Rant time...

usually I have my settings so that I do not log out but now when I click x I have to log in each time I load the page...and each time there is advertising... what is starting to pee me off is some of the Ads...

ok I am in Australia...fair enough the ads may ( and usually focus) on aussie oi oi oi carp...but and a big BUT

wft is there "'lose your bellie' AND wrinkle cream??? 57 year old Mother buys some wrinkle carp and looks 35???"

well if it is customised per country/member age, I take offence.

I maybe 43 but I don't need this kind of ad BS.

how insulting.

Put the banking ads or finance ads back on... at least that is not insulting!

Just because I am 43 does not mean I am interested in some new wrinkle cream! and just because I am mature aged doesn't mean I have a middle aged donut I try to lose.

so your getting the wrinkle cream ad as well?

urgh! maybe it is some stupid social trend where people even younger than 30 are obsessed with aging?

or maybe it is just Aussies cos they spend more time out in the harsh Sun? Well advertise for some Factor 15+
Sun Cream...

This is funny, because I'm a 30s-something married woman and I keep getting ads to meet young girls....

Before you get your wrinkles in a knot. Go here...

You should also go here, where you will find an opt out feature.

Below you can read the text to the first link I posted.

Being that I work in the advertising industry, I thought it was funny that one of my clients was on the advertising banner.

I assume they were hoping someone else to see it...

One day I had the pleasure
of being greeted to the ATS page with an ad at the top from our provincial political party, a bunch of corporate-loving, greedy, lying group of shanksters.

The exact opposite of what I had hoped to see on this site.
