Default The Dangers of Checking out Swim Briefs Online

I was interested in taking a look at exactly what swimoutlet.com was offering in men's swim briefs under the inexpensive "Sporti" brand, so I went to their Web site and started searching and looking at the various colors and designs. Turns out that there are a lot of them, and I had fun looking through them all.

Except, of course, a huge number of non swimwear Web sites that are funded with ads use Google's scheme of placing ads based on the users past Web site searches particularly searches for anything that would be a potential online purchase like swimwear.

Nowadays, whenever I go to an ad supported Web site, even my aol mail service, I almost invariably get an ad alongside featuring a guy in a Sporti swim brief! And as you can imagine the picture often shows a guy in a bright red Euro brief or some other equally skimpy Sporti brief.

I am glad I live alone and have no one here who might notice that even when I pull up my email, the list is "decorated" by an athletic guy in a very skimpy swim brief.

Be assured that I am not complaining about this, however :-)

And, many of the Sporti designs are very good looking.

Default Use an Ad Blocker

I use Ublock Origin to keep out all those ads. It has a red shield that shows how many ads are blocked on the site you are at, sometimes the number is very high. Link to site for the program

Try searching for something boring like Landrover Underseal Spray now and then to balance out your interests and confuse the AI.

Default Guys, I am not complaining

These ads are far more interesting than the ones for women's clothing I have been getting, despite not shopping for women's clothing. Plus, I am getting to see the wide range of colors and cuts in Sporti briefs, an inexpensive way for guys who like to wear them in private as well.

I am on Facebook, and used to get ads from women's whorehouses on my FB news page. I had to put "prefer men" in my FB bio, to stop that.

BikenSwim; you have just given Facebook personal information, bad move!

It appears that Facebook members are being hacked, inappropriate comments are being planted on their accounts which cause the Facebook system to expel them from Facebook without explanation or appeal.
The Facebook system is unable to accept that it is being hacked and that fake entries are being made so account holders are being held responsible for fake entries on their accounts.
It is a Catch 22 situation, the hackers are laughing because Facebook members are being expelled at their instigation while Facebook is unable to accept it's being hacked.
