... The current ad system being used does targeted ads based on the users search history from a certain unnamed but well known search site . So theoretically the ads should be pertinent to the viewer, theoretically. ...
heheh... Not sure where the Maybelline ads are coming from. Maybe from another life?
Well, Merlin, you DID post in the makeup at Faire thread a while back... :D

Anyway, I like the fixed position that the ads are currently in. Thanks for that!
   I second that.
    I'm seeing random ads, not targeted, but I don't care anyway.   They are starting to show more garb and the Pyramid (I get the catalog) site.   I'll click those!

I finally broke down and turned mine on. Since I don't allow websites to ask for my physical location (IE Security option); the " find great deals in XXX City" was creeping me out.

I just want to let everyone know that there is no intention to add any kind of popup ads.
Thanks,

  Thanks Tom, 
I know that's a deal breaker for a lot of folks, including me.  You do good work.

Is this related, or just a coincidence?

It seems like since the ads started, the forum is being hit with more spammers.  According to what I read before, there were 6 already today.

It looks like a coincidence. The spammers do often hit in bunches.
