If you clear your browser history and cookies... the "special targeted ads based on your browser history" will go away. I do this regularly. Usually after I've searched for something that has triggered really-annoying-ads. Like, one day I'll mention I think Dr. Oz is a sellout shyster, and immediately the adservers start flashing Dr. Oz ads at me LoseYourBellyFat!LoseYourBellyFat! gahhhhh. Bam, clear history, it goes away. Until the next time i mentio... oh. Hm. Guess it'll be time to clear my cache now.... lol...

Thanks for raising that issue, if only to clear the air. I certainly learned something from the discussion.

Have a great weekend!

I appreciate the comments and I am relieved that this was not done with SP. I am an net neophyte and did not think about the goggle angle.

It's GoogleAds. You commented on another thread that mentioned Obamacare, which triggered the Google ad server, and the sleaze merchants who created that ad have a fake/shifting URL designed to sneak around "no political ads" filters. Definitely report it, but be prepared to see it again, because the scum that made the ad are doing it on purpose. Keep reporting it, and Google might ban them.

We don't allow political ads on the site, but sometimes they will slip through accidentally. If you send an email to adreport@sparkpeople.com with the details, they can track it down and block it.

Thanks,

I know SP depends on advertising, but I would think there would be some editorial limits. The pop up ad attacking obamacare is digusting. It is misleading and undermines what I believe SP is all about.
