    For example - while typing this I see an ad. for the Oxford Business School and their "Artifical Intelligence Programme" - whatever that may be - in the upper right corner, what do you guys see there ?

    When I spend too much time in Brexit threads I see ads for cheap tickets to London, when I used to debate Ukraine/Russia here a lot, it was pretty blondes that wanted to marry me...
    There are no ads displayed for me. I opted for the forum version that eliminates them.

      FireFox is pretty good, too. Anything associated with Google...

        The ads vary by person. Right now I'm getting one for ruggedized marine electronics and cables. (see what random noise gets you...)

              You mean a savvy mature person who is highly discriminating in his tastes. You've got to work on expanding your vocabulary!

              (actually, it has to do with selecting large font, which expands the page and "crowds out" the ads.)
