If you are still bugged by our simple sponsor ads, even by opting-out by clicking here: http://preferences.truste.com/ (or if located in the European Union, by clicking here: http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/) you will still see them because we don't TARGET ads, they are just in a random rotation and have nothing to do with your habits on our sites or anywhere online.
