Lol, I get bombarded with those ads, Latin cupid just now, and I definitely do not search for anything related to that

I keep getting ads that I find highly offensive. I come to VB to get away from this sort of thing, yet here it is, staring me in the face.

I don't want to see ads for the company I work for!!!

You must be looking in the wrong place. I'm getting Russian love match (even though I haven't been looking for a Russian love match), Meet Black singles, Mexican women ready to marry, Latter-Day Saints Women, and Russian Love Match (again). I don't know how to do a screenshot, but, believe me, it's there.

Google looks at things such as your zip code, your search history, the websites you visit, the ads you click, and the threads you read on VB in determining which ads to show you here. What each person sees is going to be different. More than anything else I see ads for Anaheim Ducks NHL hockey when I am on VB, which I am sure no one else here sees. I'm a fan, I read the fan blogs, I visit the team website a few times a month, and my internet connection is in a zip code a few miles from the arena. Google has correctly deduced that is something in which I am interested.

Google may be showing you those dating ads because you've recently looked at or posted in VB threads that frequently mention relationships, dating or sex. And the fact you have now created a post using the terms "love match, Russian love match, meet Black singles,..." etc, means Google probably thinks you have a high level of interest in these things. You may have a lot more of those ads to look forward to for awhile.

When I look through the Dietary and Weight Issues areas, ads for all sorts of weight loss schemes will follow me around for awhile. If I go through the Environmental Issues forum on VB, I will start to see ads for solar power, recycling and car companies. It's Google trying to target the ads based on the things I view.

Some of the ads may be obnoxious, but look at it this way. When you click on an ad, VB, or whatever site is showing that ad, gets paid. Sites get paid by the click. It can be anywhere from a few cents to several dollars. I look at it as a karma's tip jar. I look forward to the obnoxious ads showing up on VB. I click them and they have to pay money to VB.

I believe one of the perks of being a paying member of VB is that you don't have to look at ads.

To do a screenshot you just push the PRTSC
SYSRQ key above the backspace key then put it into a word document or email but clicking your cursor where you want it and holding down the control and V keys.

Consider the source, Mojo. It's Yahoo reporting this story.

Don't be silly, small Mario is always that big in comparison to Koopa shells and he always stands around on them and also all pipes are really really small and also there are giant glitchy lines between textures. Well, actually, maybe that last part. But not the others.
