    I thought this was pretty ironic...Look at the thread I was reading AND the ad at the top :D

    Has this been pointed out before?

    Looks like some of our ad affiliates are going to get banned or wastelanded. :D

    there was a banner at the bottom about picking your free ipod! :p :p

    Is it irony, or proof that we are all whores? Slaves to the advertising $$ that pay the way! :eek: :eek:

    Please tell me that you did not set fire to a paper bag atop {your | someone's} head solely for the purpose of contributing to this thread? ;)

    I’d say it’s photoshopped...

    Yes, we know this happens. Yes, it's been reported. No, I don't think we can fix it.

    Whether a post says "let's talk about lemurs" or "please don't talk about lemurs", the ad generator will likely pick ads about lemurs. As far as I know, we can't disable particular words or topics that it picks up on.

    Bwahaha... if we all mentioned "lemurs" enough times, this ad from Google might show up at the bottom:

    Has anyone noticed the banner at the bottom of this thread? :p

    Daniel

    EDIT: Never mind. I guess it only shows up every now and then. It was a free iPod banner, in case you were wondering.

    Actually I had seen a similar picture on Albinoblacksheep.com but it has their url on it and says oh noes. So I search for a picture of a guy on fire, and put oh noes under it. It's probably psed, but I doubt it.
