I have no issue with it because I generally ignore ads anyway. My husband on the other hand gets irate over it

I am like Belinda and ignore it.. so couldn't care less.
Very much so. There are a few on this screen at this moment.
Yes, I noticed when we've been looking up something, like places to stay at on a holiday, they'll have ads for it on my screen for weeks afterwards. Or if my husband has been looking at cars for sale, there will be lots of cars for sale ads! At this moment, I only have 6 cruise ship pictures from a cruise business. I didn't know he'd been looking at cruises!

I totally agree with dwatk and it is sooo bloomin ahhh! don't get me started LOL.
I hate them. I was on the train yesterday, & I remarked to my husband about 1 I'd just seen on a huge wall. And then there's all those huge ad signs as 1 drives out or into airports! Every time an ad comes on the morning shows, my husband will turn it over to another morning show, if it doesn't have ads on it, at the same time.

No, it doesn't bother me - I often watch ABC or SBS even though SBS has some ads.
there are so many ads on commercial TV nowadays that they all drive me silly!

Targeted advertising as in online? Not really. You can block the ads if they bother you. I think I'd rather see ads that are relevant to me than ones that are irrelevant or offensive (eg. for dating aps or websites with questionable content)
Yes, as in online ads, and the point you raise about inappropriate ads is valid!
by Vee
No, the billboard and other outside ads don't bother me, I too can ignore them. These ads on the screen bother me slightly as we are being tracked and targeted, "they" are watching! You can turn these off, as Jennifer Muirhead says, and give them a response too.
Yes, I like that you can let "them" know why you don't wish to see a particular ad any more.
