    I'm not sure if it still does it, but google used to pretty much rip what you search for and stick it into an ad. [or it uses similar words]

    So, sometimes you end up with ads to "Buy slaves" if you're searching something to do with slavery.


    Then you have the age-old "Meet women online" style ads when you search for WoW.

    Since the TOS update, it uses Web History in the Google panel to deliver ads. Since I wiped and disabled that feature on my account, it has confused it somewhat.

    I suppose a video of FPSRussia firing a gold AK47 does have a slightly pimp theme to it.

    FPS > Type of game > Nerd/Geek > Single + socially inept > Mail-order brides.


    This is how ad-sense works. [in my experience]

    Facebook is pretty bad too. Most ads are targeted according to what pages you 'Like'. I unliked everything to see what would happen. Result: Facebook now delivers ads that are based off my friends' likes. -_-' I guess the next step is to delete all the friends? haha
