I get a banner ad from Dan's on this site. It reminds me of the price of VB and GOAK and some other things. What gave them away though was 'Crimson Cab. Sav.' I knew that bugger-all people would be buying that, I only did it once. So I'm being tracked by Dan's ... doesn't bother me but who else is tracking? And who and why? Obviously the ad content is tailored to the targeted individual. Anybody else noticed this?

I get 'buy an Asian wife' ones. I don't even find Asian women attractive nor do I want a wife

It is worse than you think Esty.

Just before I left Oz I got in the mail a letter from a car insurance mob and it was addressed as follows;

Drillerboy of Patrol fourxfour

With my physical address (as you would expect to get it in the mail).

OK, we all know that cookies are doing the spying, but the only way that they could have gotten my actual address is from my PM's where I have told it to a few people like Nissnut, Nizzbizz, Ethan and Brad, who helped Nissnut and I clean out a mates house, where I lived.

So, be warned, you are being spied on ...

I wish I got those ads.
Crimson Sav is now my missus's 2nd favourite drink. Dans had them for $5 a bottle last week. Bonus. :)

Join up with your local Dan's website and I guarantee you'll get his banner ads on here and they'll remind you what you looked at.

That is a bit of a worry DB. Thanks for the heads-up. I won't be posting my address on any forums I go to from now on.
