Tracking on PCA Forum

  Old Shep 18:30 15 May 2004

I do not know if I am getting paranoid but depending on the web page I open the adverts at the top of the forum web page change to the subject I am looking at. Is it me or are we being tracked as obviously this site needs sponsors to pay for it. The reason I ask is because we all download software to delete tracking cookies but we seem to have one in our mist.

Not sure about that but everytime I read a thread and change back to the forum my popupstopper kill a dozen popups

You're not using Opera by any chance are you? If you select the Google Ads in Opera, the sponsored ad-banner will display ads relevant to the pages that you visit. In Preferences, Advertising, you can change the options. Personally, I much prefer the Google ads, as I'd much rather see ads for meditation cushions and incense, than for dating agencies or viagra.

Old Shep - sorry I don't know what you mean as I don't get any adverts at the top of the forum webpage. I use IE & Avant - there are no adverts, except when I hover my mouse over the underlined terms in the thread. Do you reckon I've somehow blocked them somewhere?

Don't worry about it you cannot do anything, other than cut your throat, they cannot track that
