Is anyone, especially from outside Canada, seeing the adds on UG about our countries political parties? We are in the middle of a election, and they are advertising, although I was suprised to see the ads on UG. So is everyone else seeing them, epscially the people outside the country?
Nope, I'm getting ads for broadband and car insurance.
Ads have used GeoIP information for years to give you relevant information based on where you live. that's why when you watch porn there's always ads that say "**** hot girls in <your city here> tonight!"
Ads are based on your location, and often also on your interests gleaned from your browsing habits.

political party ads: always bad, despite the party
"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted."
