I was brousing here as usual and then the pop up ad had Chinese in it and ask me, IN Fantasy, Who beat Hydra in Chinese..... :eek:

you know, I got the creepy feeling as Morpheus talking to Neo to follow the white rabbit....... :wink: How do they know I'm Chinese??

I got the Chinese ads too, and was wondering the same thing. :D

A little spooky, I thought at first. Then I was somewhat eased by the fact that they obviously don't know EVERYTHING. Otherwise, they would have known that I failed miserably at Mandarin, and can't really read. :D

I get zero pop-ups. Try using Netscape or Mozilla browsers, you'll never go back to internet explorer.

There are no pop-up ads on this site. If you are getting pop-ups, you should check your computer for adware/spyware.

Correction: CDX_nsx got what I saw... I guess it's not the pop up but the ad right by the top right corner...

So, English speakers here do get the same Chinese ad??

Since they are ads for Google, you must have had cookies in your browser perference indicating some visits in the past for chinese web sites. Those questions in the ads sound like the ads I see for IQ test or learning (dis)ability, and suggesting you need tutoring. :wink: :wink:

There's a problem with the way their system decides what ads to target for this site. I reported it and they're working on it, they said it should be resolved soon.

Guess what? Ever since I answered this thread, I have been seeing these ads myself. It is new to me. Never had it before. Is it one of us on Prime doing it?
