no more, I saw an add for...

Seriously, i have seen two threads that got attention.  Can't we delete these and mine in a few days.

While many don't understand ads, its simply an extremely basic code pulling data from the current page it finds its programable code sitting on.  I.E. on a canon driven forum, if a topic has Nikon, or Minolta topic the add may decide to pull from the minolta or nikon content producing a competitors advertisement on the very content its producing. 

IM NEW TO THE SITE, BUT I WOULD NEVER BLAME CR FOR THE AD....spend time posting better content, instead of, "Hey why did cr promote....." for example, why did cr promote rather camera or nikon in ads on there site...............


enough already?

Google is very clever, they actually serve ads to match your individual browsing profile and are very accurate at showing something you have shown interest in previously.  Thus, one person may see a ad that others haven't just because of what he has used google to search for in the past.  Any ad they have that is considered similar, they throw in.  For Example, I'm retired, and AARP ads pop up frequently.

Several people must had to answer: "On Canonrumors.com" for the question: "Where did you hear about D800" when asked while buying it online ;)
