    Tynon Ads - Cleavage my lord?

    (decided to make a new thread in the hope a Hivemind Overlord reads it)

    Am I getting these cleavage laden ads simply because I'm in Japan and every company assumes that the best way to market to Japanese people is big cartoon boobs? (Correctly, unfortunately). Or are others getting them too?

    They don't seem to be the kind of thing that RPS would approve of.

    This is one of these awkward moments where advertisements may be tailored to your cookies.

    Edit: Nevermind my stupid comment. Well, the ads are outsourced.

    Heh. I did consider that. But I don't use the same PC every day, and they are networked workstations that load clean images each time you boot them up. So unless the whole IP has somehow been a bit naughty....

    That said, I've seen them on several other sites as well... non-game related sites. But maybe they're just flooding the ad channels.

    As people are always keen to point out, some ads are tailored to browsing history and such.

    But these ads are for games, they're not actually trying to sell you boobs, so they'll come up if you have games sites in your browsing history.

    The "Find singles now" ads and stuff are the ones that come up if you're looking at boobs. So I'm told.

    I don't get those ads.

    The ads I get are for declaration.net, which is sort of like a amateur Library of Congress, and the Bronx Zoo.

    Y'all are dirty, dirty people.

    If I spend too much time on chess websites I start getting ads offering Russian wives.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Funny enough, they might actually be good at chess.
