Sure, those ads that say "Meet singles in your area" are pretty annoying. They take up screen real estate, and list regions pretty close to your city, which they determine by your IP address.

This "Meet singles" ad, though, has switched from being annoying to surprising: apparently, they fail miserably at determining my location, and they offer me singles not near Seattle, and not even in my state. And while some of them are in California and in Texas, half of them are in Mexico.

Why in the world would I click on an ad that says there's a single 42-year-old, and a single 50-year-old, in another country? Whose idea was it to make this ad? How is it at all profitable?

I guess the subtle message here is to update my hosts file, or to install AdBlock Plus...
