    I've just looked at booking an MOT at Kwik-Fit.

    Guess what advert is now at the top of the page?

    Yep, Kwik-Fit

    The interesting question I think relates to why some are getting easily understandable targeted advertising and some are getting completely inexplicable adverts.

    The answer's somewhere to be found between obvious and completely incomprehensible...

    It may be browser related. I have criticised Firefox recently for being too stringent with what it lets me see (as well as being super slow and prone to hanging) but maybe it's protecting me?

    I still see no advertising at all. From what I have been told in no uncertain terms in the past it is related to surfing history (however embarrassing) which stevetroms posts would appear to back up. Could someone else be using / hacking peoples Wifi ?

    I'm going to try looking for something bizarre to test out your theories. Umm. I know. A bra for a goat. I believe there is such a thing.

    Nope. Had several goes. Alan's Skip Hire. Car accident claim. Big Bear Mountain resort. Oh and War records 1790-1940s.

    I'm sure it's very satisfying to maintain that browsing history is the only factor... (Tee hee, someone's making sex searches on someone else's computer and they think we'll believe them when they protest innocence...) And it's obvious that it goes in to it. But also we've established that there's more to it than that. My WiFi's password protected, I've had no suspicious usage, and no-one within hacking range even smokes...

    I don't know if it ties in at all, but when I was using a BT Yahoo Internet address and Firefox, my e-mail inbox was constantly flooded with spam (and, as I still have to have the BT Internet address for a few things, to a certain extent it still is).

    But, when I switched over to G-mail, I also changed my browser to Chrome. That was about 3 months ago, since when I've had ONE spam email in G-mail, and that's all.

    Depends what you use your bagpipe player for - do they do "Extras" (Haggis Carving, Caber tossing, etc)

    I get the Nicorette and 'Asian Lady' adverts on here too. I've never smoked- and never intend to- and am happily married to a man with no 'interest' in ladies...and I have sole use of this computer. It also has the strongest of filters as I use it around my small children, so I'm pretty certain no-one's ever searched for anything remotely 'dodgy'. In fact, this is the only site where the adverts are in this vein. Odd.

    I started getting funeral plan ads just after I got out of hospital after having a heart attack - yeah, thanks, people; I really need that to welcome me home . . . :( . . . would you like to come and measure me up for my wooden overcoat?

    I felt like this bloke:

    :D
