Stop the political ads!

Post by rayj »

So been playing for an hour or so and the only ad I have seen in the main window is an anti-Trump ad!

Is this on purpose or coincidental?

Ad networks determine the ads that appear in your browser based on what they believe is relevant and who is purchasing advertising at the time. I think we can all expect political ads to pick up everyone on the internet in the months to come.

Yikes - Anti-Trump add? That alone is worth the gold membership.

Does every one logged in see the same ad or is it done on an individual basis?

Ads are served individually unless a company buys ad space directly for the entire site. That would be extremely rare on this site.

If you don't want to see ads, you can go cheap and buy a silver membership. (no, I don't work for videopoker)
