I have researched specs of farm machinery on various sites only for a pop up window to appear encouraging me to visit a porn site. I haven’t visited such sites as I don’t agree with porn or want my details logged by such sites.
But why and how is it acceptable for these pop ups to appear when browsing for machinery data? I won’t use machinery data sites again that allow porn advertisement pop ups. Must of these data/spec sites are rubbish anyway and just a lure in for other promotions. As I’ve never viewed porn online I can’t see they have tailored the pop up based on any of my previous browsing other than maybe they guess I’m male.
It’s a bit like the various betting site adverts on the TV. Why on earth are they allowed? They only serve to make poor vulnerable impressionable people even poorer. Should be banned if there was real care about lifting folk out of poverty.
Sooner be seen coming out of a sex shop than a bookmakers!
