    The ads are generated automatically from an ad source company. NWFA or @Joe Link don't pick them out by any means.

    They come from your browser data.

    I bought a small order from LaPoliceGear.com and every ad that came up was from them or something similar.


    My guess is you've been roaming thru some interesting websites late at night:rolleyes:.:p:D

    Actually, that's at least partially incorrect. On my old work Windblows machine I used to get that ad banner as well, even though I'm a Gold Supporter. And trust me, no late night lonely clicky clicky there. :D

    Tag redirects to someone's ad server. What you get is based on what the ads they have to sell versus a collection of information they have about you. That might be vague, especially if you actively block data collection, so it might be just your gender, age range, location, etc but it also can be re-marketing from Amazon or Fork's Tree-topping Emporium and Cork Boots Supply about that special what-notyou left in your shopping cart.

    ETA: I used to work for one that knows just about everything about everyone.

    “...crick you rong time...”

    Fixed that for you.

    So, you studly men are getting ads for hot Asian gals? What does it mean that I’m getting offers for walk-in bathtubs and prepaid cremation?
