is there some new kind of adcertising joke that I missed?

I clicked on omega's thread about sherdog and at the top the first advertisement I see in big (Which sadly was also seen by my peers) was

REAL JOCK. FITNESS FOR GAY MEN. *Insert picture of dude without his shirt on*
Visit realjock.com

I put my password and username in to check out the link in omega's thread and the next ad i see is gay CHUBBY dating. Browse singles in your area-www.gaychubbymen.com. *insert picture of two fat homosexuals*

Am I missing a mothers day joke or something?
I'm not sure whats worse. Lietuenant X ads or chubby fat guys looking for love.

I haven't gotten any ads like that.

Just so you know, the google ads you see are based on what websites you visit.


Yeah.

Targeted advertising is the future. Learn to love it.

I'm glad I'm on a public shared computer or that could have been real awkard huh

At a guess the site owners who use the google ads don't have a say in what gets advertised nor can they control it right?

There is a bit where you can block certain URLs on Google Ads, according to this (https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=9716&hl=en-uk):


To create and manage a filter list of websites whose ads you would like to restrict from showing on your site or AdSense for search results pages, simply log in to your account at https://www.google.com/adsense and click the Competitive Ad Filter link below the AdSense Setup tab. You can create separate filter lists for your content pages and for your AdSense for search results pages. Ads for the websites that you add to your competitive ad filter list typically will not run on your pages.
Although that does say 'typically will not run' rather than 'definitely', which isn't all that reassuring.

Are these ads any worse then the 'pressure-point-deadly-eye-gouge' ones that pop up on my computer? At least the realjock website probably has people that are in shape.

The filter is limited to 200 entries and we've already blocked the most annoying ones for ringtones and such. Seriously, wtf is a "Fedor Ringtone"? Did he put out a rap album or something?

Honestly, I've seen that before on a periodic check of what ads are running through the preview tool and thought it was blocked. I'll double check.

Also, this should be in the Support Forum.

You post? Why? You're like The Question's third testicle, only more stupid and less funny.

Well, just look at the title of Omega's thread (I'm assuming this is the thread you are referring to):





http://www.bullshido.net/forums/themes/tren_z/buttons/firstnew.gif (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=69870) Sherdog members are officially metro sexuals with homosexual tendancies (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=69870)

It's no surprise that the google bot pulled up targeted advertising relating to homosexuals in a thread with the wrods "sexual" and "homosexual" in the title, IMO.

Minor update: apparently that ad wasn't blocked when I rebuilt the blacklist a few days ago. It's added to the blocked list now.

I don't see why gay ads should be blocked. Some of the most respected members here are gay. Kidspatula, Annatrocity, Omega etc..

Why can't we just all hold hands under a big inclusive rainbow of dildos and butts ?

When I click on that thread I get the gay chubby dating one, and connexton.org where boys can be boys.
