    We don't control any of that. Those ads generally go off of your browsing history. For instance, last night I was on Amazon looking for some new shorts. Here is what that ad looks like on my machine today.

    Not accusing you of searching for Russian brides as many times, ads will randomly slip in there - again - which we can't control. But more proving a point that third party ads you see on EVERY site - not just ours - are generally created by a user's browsing history.

    With all the discussion about uniforms, school colors and such, I just pressed on an ad at the top, which I almost never do, in part to support this site but also out of interest.

    https://www.garagecotton.com/

    ISU gear is new apparently, and 15 percent off before "5/7" (I think I saw).

    https://www.garagecotton.com/collections/iowa-state

    I don't know if that date is in error, or maybe you would get it anyway if you call.

    I also saw a message there that lady tank tops are 20% off, and looks like they might have ISU gear under that.

    ya. i get that. I've seen the amazon search history stuff showing up in some of my ads.

    this is my work computer. it has a squeaky clean browser history. daily I get that ad and some for thai mail order brides too. it's borderline pornographic.

    sounds like nothing can be done and this is the price to play?

    And the problem with garage cotton dot com: I didn't see any with Wrestling Cy.

    Time for wrestling fans to pony up.

    Google knows. Do you use your Gmail at work?

    If I watch a random YouTube video the ads here change. Not CF's fault. Google knows.

    Edit.. Right now CF is telling me I need a vasectomy, Sprint phone service, radio telemetry, and a concealed carry permit. It is fun.

    Every time I login on mobile it works for about 20 seconds then redirects me to a walmart gift card page.

    (using apple MacBook Pro) Over the last few months, click on forum, whats new, page not found. Go back page not found go back it lets me in. Going from page to page within the individual topic, same thing it might take 2-3 times to change pages? I don't have this issue with other message boards
