I get lots of ads for engagement rings for some reason. I'm very single, I live alone, and I've got 0% desire to even think about a relationship, let alone spend a months salary on a ring for someone else. *shrugs* 

 

I also get lots of ads trying to get me to rejoin Facebook and that's even less appealing.

The heck? :hmm:   :floor:       

Don't even pay attention to any ads that show up. Ad blocker gets rid of 'em quickly anyway.

Evidently it’s a Japanese exercise mouthpiece:

@PALM MOD, how much commission do you get for selling these things? :P:floor:

 

Only joking of course, he’s got no control over what ads are selected.

Ads are one of the ways helping to allow for the continued open and free use of PalmTalk.

Well, I doubt many people here are going to go for this click bate. I just saw your notification of a response & guess what popped up on this thread...  Sorry, adblock for this site from now on...

Can the ads be that bad?

This particular one has resulted in a nice humorous thread.

Using the Brave browser allows you to block these scripts & ads without using any other software. Just enabled script blocks & all ads are gone. Just a heads up.

Brave is probably the best browser out there right now. :greenthumb:

@PALM MOD Ads are an important form of revenue and yes, Brave Browser blocks them,  but if you were set up to receive the BAT token as a tip from Brave, I would certainly tip this site with the token.

In all seriousness, if ads are being served for completely irrelevant products like Japanese lip exercisers that might be a red flag. If this website makes money from ad impressions it’s not a problem, but if it’s clicks or actions then relevant ads need to be getting served for the ads to generate any revenue.

For anyone concerned about what ads Google is serving to you (based on your browsing history) - click on the "x" in the upper right corner of the ad for more information about why this ad was served to you and how to configure any future ads to be more to your liking or relevance.

It's a device for helping one keep their mouths open during strenuous activities. Act now and they'll send you a 2nd device absolutely free. Any guesses where that one goes?
