Default Ads on the side bar!

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.

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.

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
