Thought it rather amusing in a sick kind of way. I've been posting to my blog lately about rescuing pigeons...now I'm getting bird control ads on that page Crying

I just looked and refreshed several times. I see lots of ads but none for bird control.

I did see one ad for a dog decoy to scare away the deer. That's a pretty good idea! I guess a scarecrow is for scaring birds. Maybe I should make a scaredeer!

Jokes aside, if you get the URL to the ad I can block it.

How do I capture the ad in question for you?

They aren't giving me a url when I hover. It's these kind of ads:

Don't worry about it too much Dave...I'm sure those ads are useful to some folks and if they bring in revenue for you...

Just too bad they can't advertise bird equipment, feed, etc. instead!

hmm, I saw an ad for Lifestyle Lift (a kinda sorta face lift that is apparently popular with some folks nowadays) and I sure could use one! If only I wasn't such a chicken ... and had an extra $5,000! Rolling on the floor laughing

I was checking on the availability of a domain name this morning at work - then at lunch I was reading ATP, and an ad at the bottom of the page was for register dot com with one of the domain names I was checking on!!! Just shows you what can be captured from your pc. Blinking

I research lily images all over the internet and have lily images following me around everywhere I go. Nicer to look at than the usual ads. Clearing cookies gets rid of them.

Yep, they got our number where ever we go! Amazing isn't it? For heaven's sake don't accidentaly go to a porno site by mistake or you'll be hounded by them! Rolling on the floor laughing

I was thinking about testing it and checking by searching for something very specific. I do like the ads here and have gone to a few to check out what they offer. Love the See's ads!

I don't get See's ads. I'd better start talking about peanut brittle in all the forums. I get ads for laundry soap. What have they heard about me? Hilarious!
