    Title says it all
    Ad says 690 gun deaths in Kentucky last year
    By everytown research. Just doesn't seem like an ad that fits this audience

    Upgrade to a paid membership and you won't see any ads;)

    If memory serves, Spark signs up for an ad service. They pay money and load the ads. Spark doesn't actually have anything to do with choosing which ads get run. Except I think he does get to require that they be family friendly.

    I think the ad software reads your browsing history/cookies and feeds you applicable ads.

    All I get is hearing aid ads, bras and some other stuff I can't post here.

    This AM I see ads for Best Buy, Gearbest, and The Irish Store.

    Funny thing is I've seen a fair number of knife ads for non supporting vendors. I would guess that's part of the algorithm to try and feed the people on the site similar interests.
