Conservative advertisement on DU

Why do I get so many conservative ads on DU. For instance, this one showed up this morning http://www.stevefortexas.com.

If they want to waste their money thatís fine by me, but weird.

1. The ads tend to be targeted, so if you are visiting conservative sites you get conservative ads.

8. I dont

I am trying to figure out what sites I visited that were considered conservative. Now I do live in Texas (where this morningís ad was about) and itís a conservative suburb. So maybe itís that?

9. Yes, it could have just been a geographical targetting of anyone that lives in the area involved.

5. Ok

But that wasnít the question. I donít mind the ads and normally donít pay attention to them, but they catch my attention when itís something like that.

Even a $5 donation will do.

11. The banner ads

are put in by the hosting company, not DU, and target your ISP based on an algorithm of your web behavior.

Bit these algorithms arent perfect or precise, so you get conservative ads.

13. Given some of the attitudes expressed here, they likely figured there are pockets of fertile ground

Sometimes it feels like a right wing chatroom.

14. Report this to Skinner on ask the administators and be as specific about the ads as possible....

they have some control over the ads here. Another solution is buy a star for whatever you want to donate and loose the ads.
