    Default Asian women ads on the right hand side!!!

    Sorry, I don't know where else to post this!

    Yesterday when I logged on to the Sport Horse Breeding forum and saw ads interchanging on the right hand side. Just as I had clicked on a topic, I saw boobs on one of the ads! Quickly went back to the page but the ad was gone.

    Logged in again this morning and see the ad again on the right hand side in big, bold letters, "Do you like Asian Women?".

    Really? Really COTH?

    I'm sorry, but I frequent this board to converse about horses and horse related topics. I am NOT interested in seeing hook-up ads and big boobs on the side panels.



    Is there a place we can formerly complain on here about this?

    I suggest you check your own search history. The ads are based on your previous searches that have been cookied and then show up when you login (at least I have experienced this with other websites as well).... For instance, I always see groupon ads becuase Im on it every day.

    I couldn't agree with you more. I've also seen it and was floored. I would have thought they would limit the advertising to horse related topics like they want us to conduct ourselves.....

    I don't think its always a search history. Right now my current COTH pop ups are a site for Uncommon goods and Beer neither of which I would ever search or go to sites for. I also am the only user of this computer.

    I agree, it's commonly created by previously visited sites. For example, I regularily see ads for Victory Canter, Smart Pak, Stallion Services, etc.

    Yup, based on search history. I usually just have horse related ads but yesterday I searched for tax forms online and today I also have a tax firm ad.

    Adblock is definitely your friend. It's a browser extension and will even stop the ads on youtube

    lol I can honestly say I don't go on porn sites, dating sites or anything closely related to that. I design websites for a living and venture to a few horse forums each day, veterinary websites, etc. and that's about it for me...and no one else but me uses my computer.

    I'm not great with Internet and some computer lingo, so bear with me...

    I went on here a few days ago to read things - not logged in or anything. When I went to a different topic, all of a sudden the 'malicious page' warning came up on my browser (google chrome). Said something about malware or untrusted source, which I thought was strange, but I abandoned ship and got out of this site. Sounds like someone maybe hacked into the forums and put those ads there, rather than cookies/previous browsing history (although I'm not judging, lol!).

    Geez, all I get are the same old dull ads for dublin and the stallion guide. I have a toyota ad right now.

    Youtube on the other hand - don't care for the predictive offerings of other vids based on "what I watched" - boring. I used to always check out "what other people are watching right now" til they did away with it.

    If I were the only person on the computer I'd be a little spooked by something like "asian women". Is it a work computer and are you positive the janitorial staff isn't rocking out on yours in the late nights?

    NEVER click on those ads to the right! I did it twice...ones that showed amazing properties for sale that I wanted to drool over. After that I got "click through" malware on my computer so every time I do a google search it brings me to a click through ad. Total PITA! Had to have my computer cleaned out and I even had virus protection on my computer.

    There was a period of time last evening/night that I couldn't access COTH. My first thought was a hacker attack.

    Well, considering that most of us on this forum use terms like stallion, stud, and semen, I am not surprised the porn malbots lock onto us from time to time.

    ReSomething, this is my home laptop computer. I'm the only one that uses it. About as kinky as I get is venturing over to www.equine-reproduction.com and reading about inseminating mares and ground collecting stallions. Maybe Down Yonder is right, it's all those Google searches for semen and inseminating.

    I recently was clearly not thinking and quickly typed in ‘semen collection bottle’ as I needed disposable AV liners and bottles… this was a very large mistake and the google results haunted me for some time. From now on I will stick to the print Har-vet catalogue.

    lol!!!!!!!!!! <snort>

    thanks for early am tea-out-of nose episode!

    folks you might try ad block, and all the other privacy software out there that blocks tracking cookies, etc. i live an existence free of most annoying ads, pop ups etc. and i love it!

    i will say that i dislike strongly the new feature on Youtube where it "suggests" videos - based solely on watching dressage and stallion vids the entire right side of my screen is horse mating videos with one or two other randon horse vids thrown in for good measure....and i cant figure out how to tell them to stop!

    i use my computer for work and it is a bit embarrassing to have all those horse mating vids popping up!

    Y'all might be able to edit the content selected for you by changing your Google Ads preferences

    If that doesn't work search for "Google Ads Preferences Manager" and see if you can change your interests and demographics. Below that, you'll see ways to further edits your ads preferences or opt out completely.

    Not sure if Coth is using the Google Ads, but it'll certainly help elsewhere. Oh and try clearing your browsing history and cookies
