Bang & Olufson's Beolit 12

I'm getting that ad, as well as a hyundai cars add... I have No interest in either of these products, and have never searched either of these products.. So, i don't know why they are showing up.... If google would be smart they would be showing me adds for used Ram 3500's!!... As that is about the only product that i may be buying in the near future.

But then JP would get nothing but ads for porn sites.

I saw a BOSE ad earlier this morning - and they thought the Shout Box was offensive!

You must have missed the thread where Ian went on a drunken binge and bought up all of those other companies.

I hope Axiom will work to fine-tune their arrangement with the advertising provider so that it works optimally for Axiom.

I don't have a philosophical problem with ads on the forum. I agree with Mark and JP that having competitors' ads seems odd. But I don't really (want to) understand internet advertising, so it could be that the revenue generated by accommodating the ads is proportional to the perceived target market. I mean, Axiom would probably get much less for the space if they tried to restrict the content to non-audio (i.e. less relevant) advertising.

I suppose forum users should be happy that the number of hits, conversations, threads, posts, etc. has finally been monetized by Axiom in some way.

Yes, as much as I dislike advertising, I have less of a problem with it here because I know where the money goes. To support my message board addiction. grin

But then, as you said, they're gone now!

I'll await word from the mothership.
