    Personalized ads to offer me things I don't want to buy!

    My phone thinks it’s blocking all trackers and ive never gotten a cookie demand from the site.  Makes me wonder if they’re being stuck on some other way.  If they’re not it could be a real problem though.

    Occasionally Adblocker fails to work here, but it's always an lttstore.com ad.

    The only thing I'm interested in buying there is a mouse pad, but I don't have enough and don't need it (yet).

    I have yet to see a single LTT store ad, barring occasional video plugs like water bottles, which seems sort of memeworthy.  I don’t know why my experience is different from yours.  It could be coming from another direction.  I don’t have any Google apps for random example.  You might have been so well pigeonholed by another piece of software that it shows you adds from a website it knows you visit a lot.

    There's also that Google thinks I'm 45 (set it to 1976 for birth year so I could use Google Docs), but I don't know. I've never really had any ads anywhere.

     

    EDIT:
    I was always confused why people were complaining about YouTube ads, since I never get them.

    My personal favorite was when I told Facebook I was a woman born ijan1 1901. Weeks of nothing but wall-to-wall ads for yoga pants.  There’s several terrifying points to that one.

    Funny story: I installed the drivers for my Sound Blaster Live CT4780, and it asked me to verify myself.

    Told it I was born April 20th, 69 AD.

     

    And it accepted it. "You are 1952 years old, correct?"

    I hit yes.

    It approved it.

     

    It then asked me to fax a printout to a number, but I don't have a way to do that here.

    Could have been a way around the junk fax law.  Someone introduced a junk fax law which was going to go nowhere, but the junk fax producers all took it upon themselves to lobby and inundated the various congressional offices with junk faxes so the legislators decided it must be a real problem and passed it.  That law could produce significant civil penalties, but if it was “business corespodance” because you mailed them first they could ignore it.  It’s possible if you sent that fax you would have gotten several hundred in return.

    why the fuck would you run Adblock on the forum, which doesn't even make a profit?

    Even with it off, I get no ads. So I leave it on by default.

    I don't know why I get no ads (I even tried uninstalling it), but I don't.
