    If you search on amazon for the brazilian butt workout (my wife wanted it, not me), you get nice pictures for the next week or so under the supporting memberpoopie thing to the left of this screen.

  5. So talkbass must be supplying your user ID to Amazon (via a script from a company called quantcast) so they can "select" adds for you..

    Imagine if ALL your internet browsing habits (yes, including your "special interests"..) were logged, tracked and used for/against you..

    Because they probably are..:ninja:

    It's just cookies, not usernames. The ad space is served by Google or similar, not Talkbass, so the content of the ads is from Google or Amazon tracking, nothing to do with TB.

    there was a case in the news here recently of a public figure mocking a political party's website because he saw it had "adult" banner adverts... not realising this was based on his own browsing habits.

    Don't tell us, tell your wife so as to keep the peace. Or just clean your browser cookies. Or just enjoy.
