Default Ashley Madison

What is up with the Ashley Madison advertising on this site now? Has rail photography become a hot bed of people looking for extra marital affairs?

Really? My ad-blocker is off, yet I'm not seeing that.

Hmmm, I have always found that the RP ads seem to be directly related to my recent internet searches. I get ads for B&H, Adorama, etc. If you're getting ads for Ashley Madison, and you're not looking for some action....who else has access to your computer?

No one has access to my computer and I have been Happily Divorced for over 30 years and not looking for any 'action'.

I have gotten the same ads the last few weeks! Finding it rather odd as well....

I just refreshed my homepage a few times and got:

Chase Bank
Generic Drugs
Geico
Trump's Border Wall (!)
Squarespace
Sean Hannity

None of which I have recently visited online......and I keep the ad blocker on most of the time unless the site owner asks nicely.
Oh, and deleting irrelevant cookies works wonders except on sites where I actually want to be remembered.

UPDATE: Well, now Google or whoever thinks that I too might be interested in Ashley Madison. The ads have close and report buttons, so that's just what I do- report them as inappropriate.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Now I am seeing ads entirely in Spanish- so much for targeted ads!
