I don't get it

Recommended Posts

For being a site that does not allow political opinion there are sure a lot of one sided political banner adds.

Don't blame the site, the ads come from Google. Political ads should be filtered but apparently Google is having issues with that. I am sure Glenn would love to remove them. Fortunately it will be over after today.

If that's the case one side needs get there IT and bribery skills tuned up.

That makes a little more sense that the adds may be slipping through.

They're regional ads, and what makes it difficult is we're getting different ads displayed, based on location.

Advertisers and spammer (not putting them in the same category!) are getting very crafty at getting around ways that once blocked their efforts. As J stated, these are regional and I'm willing to bet that Google doesn't even know they are getting through. There's just too many locations for them to be able to nail them all.

Nate and J are correct.  ALL the political ads are coming via Google, and there's no way to filter them out.  They're all localized, which makes it impossible to find and eliminate them all.  It's like whack-a-mole!

Last day of this, thankfully!

I'm going to say something political. 

I hope every member who is registered to vote did. 

It should be an interesting evening, and I'll leave it at that.

I used to love that game as a kid. Just think how fun it would be today if we could play it with politicians.

If it gets people to get out and vote, then I can live with it....certainly less annoying, and easier to ignore than the fifteen pounds or so of full page, heavy stock campaign ads that have been overflowing my mailbox.  Even my three year old gets a copy!

All in the name of environmental preservation.
