I wouldn't go that far, it's not like this is a pornography site or anything.
Half of the ads being displayed are being targeted directly at the user, based on their browsing history - especially if you are using Google Chrome.
Example - recently I was doing a search for new Subarus, so its no coincidence that Im seeing a Subaru ad from a local dealership.
There is a type of science to it, this is from Google's Adsense page:
What Google does and doesn’t do to show you ads
We may show you ads based on many factors, including:
The DoubleClick cookie on your browser
The contents of the website you’re viewing, if it’s part of the Display Network or a Google partner site
The types of websites you visit, if they’re part of the Display Network or a Google partner site
Whether you’ve previously interacted with any of Google’s ads or ad-type features
Anything you +1 on Google and across the web
Your Google profile
Basically I dont get the outrage over ads.
Based on Google's TOS for AdSense, his site cannot have this type of content on it to be a participant (Im guessing), it's that simple. There are plenty of other places I can go to get my fill of boobs, really.
Granted some of the ads being shown are only because of the content of the discussion on the page itself and/or the users search or web history. I'm not saying the ads aren't borderline (such as the MILF or Asian ads) but they aren't porn, so they are allowed in Google's AdSense network (Im guessing here as well).
So, what Fishooked is saying confirms my "immature defensive projections"... that the ads are smart ads.
In retrospect I hope Borgo feels his tantrum was worth it.
I'm usually not right about much, but I'm pretty sure Im right about this

Finally, and this is something I should have said to you months ago, GO...F**K...YOURSELF, SCUMBAG. You are a joke and an embarrassment to this great site. Every thread you visit, word you type, devalues its content and history. How's that for "stretching your imagination", you witless twit?"

and everyone else is all:
"Paulie stop being mean!"
I love this place.
Use the quote buttons, n00b.

I believe that it crawls the entire site, not just the thread of forum you are presently residing in, although site crawling algorithms are tricky, to be sure. It may have something to do with your browser cache as well ,etc.
