Maybe we should start an add collection of all the different ones.

The Habbo Hotel ads seem to be promoting mass raids...

No they don't.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

No they don't.

Have you seen the large line of those people wearing the exact same things?

Sound familiar?

Damn Steve, you must be LOADED!! ;D, jk but at least you have a solid soultion for the money problem anyway. Besides at least these ads aren't annoying pop-ups, and most of these ads are pretty much the same, not very harmful. Great job steve! :)
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

I know nobody has any control over this (Googlebots picking the ads and all), but it would be nice if there were some way to keep Ann Coulter from stairing at me as I perused everything else.

I keep getting scared she's going to try to "perfect" me... ;)

Overall, I'm actually finding these ads amusing.
Generally it's fun to look at what google thinks I'll want.


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

No, I'm seeing it also.  I'll shoot Steve an email to see if he can opt out of it.  Makes for an awkward situation when the girlfriend comes over to look at a post...

As long as they're not porn adds I'll be happy.
One ad said "Free Bom Chicka Bow Bow".
A part of me died at that. :(
That was just an ad for Tomb Raider.

Anyone else seeing that one Ad for a space game where "Explore" is misspelled? There is a total of 5 words in the add, how did they manage to screw that one up? ???

I think it's Star Sonata, and it's spelt "Exlpore"

I don't know weather it's to do with the ads, but lately, the tab tries to link to http://dg.specificclick.net/%3Fu. This fails, and I'm sent to a Google page saying that it can't be found, with a list of related links. It might not be to do with the ads, but it only happens on this site, and it's only started recently.

Other than that, I find the ads unobtrusive.
