Lotus Elan

Chinese Brides

PostPost by: Henry VIIII » Thu Jun 07, 2012 1:58 pm

Is it just me or is Google providing adverts for Chinese girlfriends/brides at the bottom of the pages for everyone else.

I wonder why Lotus or Elan triggers adverts for Chinese brides, I suppose it is misinterpretation of Lotus, which is usually used as in Lotus Blossom (a Chinese flower?)

I hate to be the one to break it to you Henry but the adverts are targeted based on your previous searches and viewing behaviour. Are you sure you're not interested in a Chinese bride? :wink:

Firefox, with Do Not Track Plus and AdBlock Plus? You?ll be amazed at how much this speeds things up.

?and no ads for Chinese brides, under scored word links, or car parts you don?t need and all free to boot!

If there are pictures of the Chinese brides and they are cute........you're lucky.

The bottom of my page is toilet tissue..........

I use Firefox and just was served up Persian wives and I haven't been shopping for any lately, so you are not alone. Apparently there is an assumption out there that if you have an old lotus, you need a new wife. :lol:

...I've been served up a vaccuum cleaning robot and an offer of fertility treatment in Spain this morning. :shock:

Being neither disposed towards doing the vaccuum cleaning (SWMBO wil testify) nor extending the family (at my age) I decided to pass. :wink:
