    Why is there a pop up add trying to sell me Barry manilow tickets in Vegas....... on L R H ?
    What happened here? Gun & truck adds I could understand, but what's next, Neil Diamond? Or maybe Ray Charles endorsing optics?
    Come on... Really.....? Has it gone that far?

    Look I love L R H for what it is, for the friends I've made here, & all I've learned here, so if you reply to this thread please do it tactfully. It is NOT meant as a hate thread where people dog pile in on the problemb.
    This is simply meant as a wishful reality check for what we log on here for. (wich is not Barry manilow)

    In regards to ads posted on LRH I've found it has a lot to do with what you search for on your particular computer. My brother borrowed my laptop to do some research on buying an engagement ring and I had diamond and jewelry ads for about 2 months after.

    My wife has also been watching a bunch of shows on HULU and now I get ads for TV shows I've never even heard of. Some of the ads that come up seem out of place every once in a while but most of the ads I see seem to be related to things I've searched for while on that particular computer.

    If I remember there was a thread a little while ago about somebody wanting to know why it kept asking them about big breasted women and it made me laugh cause of what I mentioned previously. Don't know for sure if that's why it happened....just saying I've noticed a correlation between what you use google for and what pops up on ads on LRH.

    Poor Winmag thought he could get away with it and keep his Barry Manilow fettish a secret. hahaha jk

    Hahahahahahahaha, oh man, that was low.... but funny as heck.
    No I don't have a Barry manilow fetish, nor have I ever Googled anything to do with him or any other member of the menopausel aged fan club. :D
    You guys are a rough crowd haha :D
    However, I did send Royinidaho a p.m. a while back... Hmmmm.

    Very odd. I think ill just go with ss7mm's advise, & if I don't see it it doesn't exist. :D
    I was laughing the whole time I posted that, but I was roaring with laughter at the reading of some of your posts. It's Good to know you have friends.... hahaha.

    Sorry Roy, but this one wound up being almost as entertaining as some of your posts. Figured you'd join in sooner or later, so I had to beat ya to it :D
