Blargh

OK, I really need to switch to GMail. At least I do if someone can assure me that I won't be getting creepy ads over there. Yahoo mail is just a step away from advertising prostitution at this point. Hell, I'd prefer if they did, that'd be less creepy than the sex ads I'm getting now.

Today's new entry into the "dating" ads that appear in my email is for a site called "Established Men". The subtitle for this site is actually "Sugar Daddy Dating".

Why oh why am I getting these ads? What have I done that would direct these to me? Is it just because I'm male and of a certain age? I don't think Yahoo has any other information about me. I tried to look up their ad system and found other people complaining about it only to be told by Yahoo that we can't request any changes to what ads we receive. That seems inane to me, wouldn't the point of advertising be to get people ads they are likely to respond to?
