    Tasteless In Your Face Ads


    I've had MSN.com as my home page for as long as I can remember. Today I have finally had enough of their tasteless social ads. Maybe it would not be too bad if there were one ad offering to meet men or meet women on my home page but when it is at the top, side and bottom, it is too much. Good riddance MSN.com!

    MSN is not the only money grubbing guilty website, where is this good ads blocker I keep hearing about?

    these ads do me appear on my msn.com

    although these are targeted ads based on browser history and browser search..

    not saying you but somebody.

    in IE click the gear icon go to manage add-ons to tracking protection and get a tracking list online. I recommend easy list and stop google tracking. You can also go here to set your settings in your Microsoft account for personalized ads and privacy and much more.
