Shalom bizarre advertising.

Seriously, these people need to work on their marketing. I imagine the demographic interested in learning a high-standard of Biblical Hebrew is not commonly found lurking on a Gaming forum.

Then again, how many Gamers are interested in Ukrainian Cars and the finest Iranian Mail Order brides? Why is the Internet so terrifying? Do people actually buy these products? Did some lurker on GamingSteve thank Yahweh that now he can finally learn Hebrew from home with the greatest teachers in all Jerusalem? Is some would-be entrepreneur still in negotiations with Nigerians over the 'code to main money'? Did some cautious homosexual finally find confidence in his relationship due to GayParship.com? Does someone out there actually enjoy the terrible MMOs?

We may never know.

I've been seeing some weird Ayn Rand ads lately.  :-\

Got that in this thread.  Pretty meta.

I've been noticing a marked increase in the appearance of dating sites. Too be honest who at these dating sites thinks its good business to try and inflict the gamingsteve community on there currently user base. Some women could be scared for life from some of the posters here. (Some men to I suppose.)

I seem to getting a "Win a Wii + GH3", despite the fact that I have both and do not wish to have another pair.

Maybe Huck is the reason why we get those ads.

Also, are these christian ads trying to tell us something especially when this forum is openly atheistic?

We also get Muslim ads. I suppose any discussion of religion brings these things upon us.

I keep getting an ad for a 'free Pokemon MMO'

Nintendo are going to go spare when they get wind of it.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Though I'm glad someone tried to simulate the concept. Nintendo just needs to make a Pokemon MMO and they'll get even more wads of cash to spend on developing other mediocre games for the Wii.

Despite it's age-oldness, Pokemon is still rather popular. Even I'd buy the new game released in the red/blue canon. Shouldn't a third one be coming out soon for the DS to go with Pearl/Diamond?

But an MMO is something that has been speculated for ages. Though the idea is nice, I have a good feeling it just won't be what I'd want in it.
