Article is about online advertising.

Yup, someone doesn't know how websites have linking to every damn advertising server in the world.


That said, you'd think by now there would be an advertiser-side equivalent to ad blocker lists.  If not, that seems like an opportunity for someone.

I'm not surprised or outraged by this, this is likely simply automated targeted ads. The real test here will be if the companies request these ads are pulled from these sites.

Nike shoe culture, from my perception, appears to be this,:
Jens new shoes
Youtube SO4MzTfM9XQ
but targeted at male presenting humans.

You know what?
Fine.

Sell qanon idiots shoes, less money for them to donate to Trump.

Wouldn't make a difference. Crazy people buy shoes too, and potential sales are all that matter to corporations.
