Ahem! Not the type of ad I really want.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. unwanted.jpg

    As I'm neither gay nor own a Kindle or other e-reader, I don't think this sort of ad is appropriate.

    Found in the right-hand area (coincidence?) of My Subscriptions.
    • Like Like x 1
  2. It goes of your web history...
    • Like Like x 2
  3. Don't be silly. This is an ad for soft porn so there's obviously some mistake.

  5. If you are being targeted by brown-hatter adverts there's a clear reason for it. It's time you came out and admitted you're a Marmite miner.

  6. Definitely a chutney tunneller:)
  7. It'll work on ip addresses, if you have a son id be worried.
  8. This is what comes of buying a used laptop off Jarrod.
  9. Mine at the moment is all for "American sew on patches", so very much doubt it!
  10. I have a wife but I'm not inundated with cook book ads. Just as well because I think we've got them all.
  11. Well, we know what you've been searching for recently ;-)

    Puttees, meet Jarrod :rofl:
  12. Well, let's think...

    Gas cookers and regulations concerning ventilation - my electric oven has recently packed up.
    Oman, Dhofar, RCT, RASC, 47 Air Despatch Squadron - in response to an ARRSE query.
    Lindisfarne - I've heard they're doing some more Xmas concerts.
    Cultivating potatoes - I've got 6 tubs full, 3 of which apparently will be ready in the next fortnight or so.

    ...and that's about it since I cleared my cache and checked for internet creepy crawlies.

    None of that lot seem to have invoked associated ads.

    Then again, I've spent a bit of time in the NAAFI...
  13. just accept you've been de-closeted by the i-out app on your rather gay computer
  14. Gotta agree lol
    It's not as simple as just what you've searched, there's complicated algorithms at work. But it is all based on what the advertisers think will interest you most relative to what's been viewed, searched, cookies etc.

    I'd be setting up a lil clean up prog to run daily, if I ever views porn on a PC that is ;)

    That still doesn't give me any clue as to why I am inundated with ads for 'Muslim Singles', the ads for Ally gear, yeah I can understand, but 'Muslim Singles' why and why me and why every time Mrs CC looks over my shoulder is it an ad for a 'Muslim Single'?
