    Chris, Really?

    An ad for the University of Iowa on Cyclone Fanatic?! Are we really this desperate for cash?

    That's probably one of those ads that is dependent on your browsing, just FYI

    Re: Chris, Really?

    You realize that those ads aren't sourced from CF directly, right? They are based on your browser history and come from a third party.

    So the real question is: YIP, is there anything you need to tell us?

    Good call deleting the porn sites from your bookmarks.

    Re: Chris, Really?

    then why am I getting ads about Meth and Crank Bugs? Blech. Maybe because I was on reddit? No that's the cause of the gay marriage ads.

    Re: Chris, Really?

    That's a Google-based ad. Chris can block them when they come up, but they are dependent on your browsing history (and a few other things).

    I'll move this to Site Feedback.

    Congratulations, you are the 500th person to make a similar joke about an ad that is on the site....and you are the 500th person to publicly demonstrate that you don't understand...at all...how ads on the internet work.

    By the way, you have the most boring bookmark list known to man.

    Well, it's definitely less "interesting" than your fetish porn and taxidermy links.

    Hey, I bet we can get a few more Iowa ads if we can get a few people to run around with Fran McCaffery avatars and start like 7 threads about how nobody cares about the NIT and nobody will watch the NIT while they essentially post a play-by-play of the Iowa game in the NIT.

    Oh.
    Wait.
