    I think that is based off of your browsing history. Mine is always showing Bigfoot gun belts or Alien gear holsters. I think itís tailored based off of your history and what you might like.

    Sir, I BROWSE NOTHING OF THE SORT. NO REASON for Google, chrome, or any other algorithm to think I'm interested in things of that sort.

    Ha! The raciest thing Iíve browsed is the TMZ website. Wanted to see what the Kardashians are up to.

    Regardless, Iíve seen members chastised for minor bad language. We all need to practice what we preach otherwise rules have no teeth.

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    Perhaps they are trying to tap into a previously-undiscovered audience...

    I saw the same ad. I have no idea what prompted it to show up. That's one of the things that prompted me to install the Opera browser with the built in ad blocker. I realize the ads generate revenue, but I don't need that sort of stuff showing up uninvited.

    Probably going to turn out like the other ad promoting alternative lifestyles that is on here with the Admin claiming that they cannot control it, which, I find incredulous.

    UNLESS the model is sporting a 1911, or wearing a fine jeweled watch, their add revenue is being wasted!

    It can be controlled. Early in my career I bought media, including banner ads on websites. Website owners can restrict what businesses buy ads for placement on their website. If an advertiser is categorized as an adult themed business, then there is no legitimate reason it would show up on here unless they donít restrict who advertises.

    Often, websites like this will outsource their media selling. So they sell a certain number of impressions through a third party. Since this website is owned by a group which owns lots of websites, my guess is someone just isnít paying attention like they should be. Being most of us are politically conservative, this is a lot of egg on their face, especially given some of the rules we are expected to follow.

    Maybe they also run adult themed websites and somehow they trafficked the ads incorrectly. Who knows.
