Banner Ad Fail...

I was perusing the forum today, just like any other day. 99% of the time the banner ads at the top of the page are just background noise, and I barely notice them, but this one... Well, this one was different.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that FRF people was probably not the targeted demographic on this one.

I'm dying here..

Tim

P.S. And before you think "ads are custom generated based on history"... Not on this computer. This is my work office computer, and I would never look at anything that would prompt this ad on it. Even if I wanted to, our net-nanny is locked down so tight it would make Marry Poppins look like a swinger by comparison.

My TV and TT requires lubricants. Could that be the demographic match?

So do I, but I don't own this computer. It belongs to my work, and they don't wanna let you do ANYTHING to them. We can't even use the USB ports or change the windows background picture. Hell... I'm even stuck using Internet Explorer :throwup: . I don't think getting the OK to install ad-block is gonna fly with the IT weenies.

Now that you mention it.... it DOES sound like some sort of high-tech 5th wheel lube...

Your company provides you a computer, obviously isn't blocking IP addresses, lets you surf the web and post to forums and doesn't want to install ad blockers.... Interesting IT concept. Not sure why you'd have any complaints?

Google serves up most of these ads and while we specifically tell them we don;t want certain categories of ads, sometimes there are goofs. recently I saw an interesting mistake - probably not from google itself but instead maybe from the originating media firm.

Do you see anything unusual here? (hint - look for the red arrow)

I don't care what they put on this site, just wish the screen would just stop jerking around when the ads start popping in. Some pop so late it takes awhile to see the posts because the screen keeps jumping up or down loading the ads. Only on this site.
Is it only me???
