    Just a point for those paranoid ones out there, this site tracks your browser history and pops up related ads.

    If this site tracked my browser history, I would be arrested by government thugs. They have not shown up yet, after years, so everything is safe.

    Ahh it tracks them. I was shopping online for vehicle brake parts earlier, now I get brake parts ads. Never seen brake part ads before on here.
    Aparently it does not work for porn though :D

    BTW only fools think that what they do on the net is private. Unless you are using VPN, encryption, etc.

    My encryption code can defeat any algorithym. Sometimes, even I do not know what I am typing.

    I seldom know what I am typing, which is why I fit in so well here.

    Looks to me like it takes key words from the thread and shows us related ads.

    Right now the billboard is trying to sell cyber protection.

    Wonder what the ad will be if I said I was looking at old National Geographic pics of Elephantiasis of the nuts?

    It does that as well. but I had never mentioned brake parts not advance auto parts anytime before on here. Search them out if you do not believe me.
