2. Ad servers on the internet are robots. Merchants subscribe, specify certain criteria & pay.

I'm pretty sure that exclusions are pretty limited and pricey, so websites such as this probably don't see who's buying this screen real estate, until the stuff runs here.

4. Yeah, it shocked me the first time I saw something like that. Somebody mentioned it here the

I bet those ad brokers can get premium fees during certain types of news-cycles, so they probably market the hell out of that stuff.
