We have an ad blocker at work, but sometimes the adverts on GZ do show
And when they do, they are good - I've been looking at a Mazda 3 and now I get adverts for a Mazda 3
I then look at tires for the Mazda I purchased and bamn, adverts for tyres

Work has me looking at other things and bamn, adverts for those appear.

Well done advert company tongue-out

What ad blocker do you use?

 

I normally white list Geekzone, but on occasion when I come here and its on....there are no ads.
Maybe you need a better ad blocker? Or maybe you've got adware on your computer (spyware?) injecting these.

Maybe if the ads are so good, you should just let them run? hah

its google tracking you and providing the ads.   they do work well at times, hence the reason people pay google to run their ads they hit the target audience.

Hmmm... GZ/Google Tracking thinks I might want to join the Territorials.

I don't think they'd have me, even if there was a remote chance that I would apply. lol

And it does seem a bit self-defeating for doubleclick.net to be trying to persuade me to buy Ad blockers.

Even though I work in the IT Department, I can't tell you what the ad-blocker
It is automatic, so I am assuming it is built into Web Marshal that the company uses. 

Defiantly no adware/spyware on the system
