For this thread (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=107694), i am not sure the third google ad along the top is appropriate :) humorous though

I agree with you.

Some sites, including it appears Press F1 may have set up "interest" based ads to display with Google Adsense. Thus some targeted ads to a visitor arriving on a Google adsense site, may be displayed based on a visitors recent browsing history. For example I have just spent 2 hours updating my Google maps/hotel site, and currently some maps and hotel ads are displaying in press F1.

Did you search anything regarding children?

That's probably what caught it.

Are you sure it doesn't have anything to do with the contents of the page? I am seeing very similar ads on that page...

Could very likely be that. Google is evil in those ways.

Actually come to think of it, i have sworn at google search a few times when it doesn't return what i want, perhaps this is googles subtle way of calling me a Wayne Kerr

Yup thats exactly how it works, have a look at the LCD Plasma TV thread, the ads on it are all for TVs, normally I have adblock but I am playing with Opera 10.5 at the mo, and haven't bothered to add a blocking script
