google ads now estimates your demographics based upon the sites you go to and ads you click on. One, this is creepy two, it was close, but not close enough. had my age off by a year.

Yeah a lot of websites track all your history information to better select what ads to shove down your throat. I cannot stand advertisements. It pisses me off so much when I have to click here to do this in order to watch the video I want to see. Or click here to skip this ad in 20 seconds to proceed to the page you want to view, then half the time it's the wrong page with more bullshit advertisements haha.

There is a lot of things websites won't publicly announce that they track from your computer. Then there has been websites that do announce these things. One particular website tracked a huge portion of all bit torrent traffic and posted on their site exactly which files that were downloaded/transferred were copyright protected and who downloaded it. They actually did refuse to post the list of people who downloaded illegal content. But basically they have that info on their database. Creepy is right.

Funny thing is, I visit EF the most and see no advertisements for adult websites, sex toys etc.

Same here. Buy, or look at anything on o.co though and they ram ads down your throat just as you said. looked as some rally bad rings a few months back and terrible looking rings were on ad banners for days.
