What the...? PETA ads?

Has anyone noticed the PETA adds on the side of the horse forum? There selling t-shirts and all kinds of merchandise. I am just curious why they are there.

Unless I am mistaken, the ad tailer basically takes keywords from whatever happens to be on the page and finds an ad that has the same or similar keywords.

I/E: On a thread talking about show clothing, pants, shirts, etc, there may be an ad for a clothing store or a brand of jeans or something.

I've never seen PETA ones, but I think someone mentioned it before a while ago. I always get Toyota ads..probably because I've mentioned my Corolla several times on the forum.

Right now I have H&R Block..haha

I think some of the ads just cycle through like the car ads and such. But I do think that some of the ads that come up are depending on like, things on the page or things you usually look up on your computer or something. That's how a lot of sites are.

I haven't seen any PETA ones. Right now I've got Toyota and Netflix. lol
