Does anyone else get food ads all the time on this site? It is cracking me up every time I see one for Chik-fil-a or some other food related product.

Wow, I am so glad I don't see them. I'm always in an epic battle with my willpower, lol, I need the least temptation possible.

I use Adblock Plus and so legit I hardly ever see any ads anywhere.

Just now I saw a McDonald's ad! Oh the irony.

Keep in mind the ads are "smart" because they're designed to correlate with what you search for with your browser. ;) I get a lot of restaurant ads because I'm constantly looking up nutrition info for them! The latest haunting me is Red Robin. :lol:

Yes, they are annoying BUT they do pay for this free site.

That's a very good reminder, Ruthxxx, Adblock does let us whitelist sites we want to support :)

I turned off the "smart ads" option on my iPad, and all of a sudden I started getting really weird ads -- for example, an ad in Spanish for maxi pads. I quickly turned smart ads back on. I much prefer my innocuous LOFT and Title 9 ads... LOL

Newleaf - too funny! I think after hearing that I will leave smart adds on. I currently have adds for a window blinds store and caoch purse. I did recently look at the coach website and I've been browsing new windows for the house. All my googles are boring and usually house / home decore related, so I dont mind them :)
