Just want to point something out before you guys start thinking you're getting "Signs" from the universe.

When someone types a title using Key words such as "heart attack" or "bipolar" (or even the recent Romeo & Juliet) the search engine that runs those ads that appear above the forums FINDS those key words and provides similar advertisements, in hopes of having discovered your interests and now offering something you might want to investigate.

It's salemanship in the internet.

Do not let yourselves think "oh, I just thought about heart attacks and wrote that post and then the next day there were all these ads about heart conditions!!!"

Logic. There is always a logical answer, my friends.

Peace,
J

What concerns me about your post is, you may be the last one here to have figured that out.
Remember JB, most of the members here are younger than us. They understand what it means to be "Googled." And thank you again for suggesting I type out the Romeo and Juliet thread by the way. Such a great title, and the negative, judgmental pm's have slowed to a trickle....

Yes I think sc is right, I myself thought the board makes money on putting up those ads, I would have never figured out the connection between the posts and the ads, I guess I m way too inattentive for that...
