OK, I really need to switch to GMail. At least I do if someone can assure me that I won't be getting creepy ads over there. Yahoo mail is just a step away from advertising prostitution at this point. Hell, I'd prefer if they did, that'd be less creepy than the sex ads I'm getting now.

Today's new entry into the "dating" ads that appear in my email is for a site called "Established Men". The subtitle for this site is actually "Sugar Daddy Dating".

Why oh why am I getting these ads? What have I done that would direct these to me? Is it just because I'm male and of a certain age? I don't think Yahoo has any other information about me. I tried to look up their ad system and found other people complaining about it only to be told by Yahoo that we can't request any changes to what ads we receive. That seems inane to me, wouldn't the point of advertising be to get people ads they are likely to respond to?

I use yahoo mail and I'm really starting to think it is time to switch to google mail. The creepy sex ads in Yahoo are getting worse. At first it was just ads for dating services. Then it was ads for on-line char dating services where even the ads had buxom women yelling "NO" at the person they were supposedly chatting with. If that wasn't creepy and disturbing enough, the latest are called "Seductive Singles" with the tag line "Young Women looking for Older Men". Why not just call the site Sugar Daddies or Long Term Prostitution?

The ads are vile enough that it might be worth the pain of changing my address on all the sites where it is my contact info.

Also, one of their most recent side-banner ads is below. Can anyone tell me why she's trying to eat her own face? Are Auto-Cannibals hot this year?

Bad ad

The copy for this on-line ad reads
We reviewed the top wrinkle creams. You'll be "shocked" at what we found!

So since they say you'll be "shocked", quotes indicating a euphamism, what will you actually be?

Why would I take their IQ test when they can't even get the teaser questions right?

I was looking at an electoral prediction site when this ad came up under the "quote of the day". These counting things have often amused me, so I counted. How many triangles are there?


Do you see 48 in the answers? Is there one even close?

These are likely the same idiots that have the ads trying to goad you into taking their test with "Bush has an IQ of 140" or "McCain has an IQ of 130" or "Palin has an IQ of 120"
followed by "Are you smarter than him/her"?

They probably make up those numbers. Then again, if those numbers are generated from those people taking these tests? The results might be right, but the questions are wrong.

And yes, I'm aware that it is possibly wrong on purpose to get jackasses like me clicking through to tell them they're wrong. However, I don't care if they know they're wrong.

What happens when [ profile] mekkasimian is in a room with many Japanese women.

I posted this because [ profile] wizardru hadn't heard of Salad Cream and I wanted to show him how disgusting it is. This is how I discovered it. I saw this ad when I was in England visiting [ profile] garrity in the late 90s. ([ profile] garrity, look away! The horror!)

All I can say is "BLAURRRGH".

Please post a comment to let me know if you watched the video. I'm curious who will.
