    Default Google AdWords

    A depressing sign of the times. The Google adwords banner that appears above this post replicates the articles and keywords that are used.

    As you would expect, a lot of the banner ads are for political parties and political personalities, as well as oddities like MMO's and software packages.

    Increasingly though I'm getting:

    Reduced Cost Counselling
    No to Pedophelia
    Want to quit your job

    You are what you type it would appear these days, and this is a reflection on what's on the boards at the moment.

    If you're using Firefox, install Adblock Plus (get to it from your add ons menu in Tools) and kiss the spam bye bye.

    Goes to show you....even google knows you're bent on living in the past.
    History will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.

    If you see an ad from someone you don't like, click on it and have them make a contribution to the running costs of P.ie.

    Simples:
    "Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest." Mark Twain

    “When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.” Napoléon Bonaparte

    Because Politices.ie runs on fresh air? Best solution is now and then to click on an ad for a political group or company you don't like. That way you are costing them money while also supporting P.ie - which I imagine probably really needs the clicks these days.
    Clicking an ad a day keeps Politics.ie in business.
