Ad System Comment

Post by Russly » Mon Oct 05, 2020 6:53 pm

Never had a chance to mention this anywhere before but for those who are interested....

When ads started being run on the home page I noticed they were the standard money maker random computer generated guesses. But that means it included those silly lingerie ads or even those singles waiting for you ads.

Wait, what are those doing here of all places? I haven't seen many of those specifically anymore so maybe it was caught, but this is exactly like a certain ad campaign a few years ago....

I had actually saw when that happened and was like what the hell is a Koch ad doing being presented to the Daily Show audience? And lo and behold I clearly wasn't alone.

And for those who want the bonus round, there -is- this....

Not ads, but Google Autofill. Would be overridden by supremacists who would search stuff like "are women evil" repeatedly until the autofill started displaying it as the first result.

Next thing we know the inertia was too strong and it apparently resulted in subliminally reaching Google's mainstream audience.

I never noticed that. Probably because I use adblock lol.
Call me Celina. This forum still have a long way to go until it gets filled with its intended public. And I'll do my best to help us reach that goal. I'm a battleaxe, and when you hear my voice it'll be as loud as a thunder and as clear as a blue sky.
