Why is this a problem? You're pro- enslavement of women to fetuses, she's pro-enslavement of women to fetuses. You're helping your cause by helping hers.

How is this surprising, especially to those that have "Conservative" as their ideology?

Google Ads look for keywords and bring up some of the most relevant stuff. For instance, I get ads for liberal stuff, and at times I got ones for the Manning Centre - a conservative think-tank, but a Canadian one.

They look for keywords - if you don't want the Ann Coulter ads, don't put in your ideology.

They're on the left. Unless you have that stupid add on that gets rid of them.

I'm getting both. They are both from the Human Events column though, so the ads are probably from the same source.

I also keep getting an ad for something called Evony that has an old-fashioned-looking woman showing lots of cleavage.

That's a game apparently and I get that too. It's an eye catcher, eh?

I get the Ann Coulter add 99% of the time while I'm on DDO and there is nothing conservative about my profile. I think the Coulter add has something to do with DDO cause I shouldn't be getting it.

Yeah, Chrome does s*ck. I tried it for 5 minutes, then just gave up; I expected better from Google. I use Internet Explorer.

What did I do to deserve it... I list none of my ideologies on my profile, yet I'm getting all this conservative stuff. Should I change my ideologies just to avoid that sort of thing?

Parenthood could be described as enslavement. But it doesn't change the fact that parents are responsible for the well-being of their children.

I really need to debate with you on abortion one of these days.

Another thing: I keep getting lots of ads for dating websites; at this very moment one is on the top of my screen. What did I do to get those? It's just plain weird...

Very true. Though in reality, people who make ads will target people that would potentially want the product. For example, pool table ads were playing today when billiards was on ESPN.

The difference with that and the website ads is that the ads on ESPN are crafted due to the TV show by thinking humans. On the website, the ads are crafted by computers, who pick and choose different keywords from the page to craft a ad it thinks will spike the interest of the user.

Same method, but the mind behind the scenes orchestrating it all is different. The question is which one is more fallible?

Ha ha. Actually, I have a general dislike of humans in general; I have no desire to marry or have children. I am somewhat disgusted by the fact that I am myself, human. However, I manage to live with this when I take into consideration how much worse it would be to be a dog or some other such animal...

What the...? AAAGGHH! Ann Coulter is back!!!

I'm not surprised, I just feel... hunted. It's as though she's everywhere I go, on my profile, in my debates, on billboards...
