The ads that I am irritatingly getting constantly bombarded with are those advertising savings on funeral costs in "x". The algorithms have obviously identified my age, and given the Covid 19 situation have picked me for a worthwhile punt. So if I post about Morecambe it's "in Morecambe", Colchester it's "in Colchester" etc I once mentioned Christow and obligingly up it duly came. I guess the reason might be that I have my location deactivated, and undeterred the fecking things are constantly guessing !

I have however managed to score one pyrrhic victory in the battle between man and machine. It seems that an algorithm capable of deciphering the phonetic use of the Devon dialect does not yet exist, so my repeated use of "Tebbern" totally defeats them ! Lol

I seem to remember someone (who will remain nameless) causing many an advert for Ukranian ladies on the site. This may be fake news
I occasionally have a sneaky peak at exeweb from the office laptop and I'm only on as a guest then. You still get adverts for ladies from Ukrain I think it is. I seem to remember that the advert says 7 women to one man. I do wonder if anyone ever clicks on any of those. I suppose someone must otherwise they wouldn't do it.
