Interspersed with adverts for boilers and the CQC, I am now getting messages from God and Jesus at the top of my GN page.
Am I being targeted for some reason or are others getting this too?

Messages from God and Jesus on GN?? Have you reported these or have they paid?
I fear you may be the chosen one grin

I don't notice the ads but atm I've got a toddlers laptop and a large high street catalogue store on the page.

I find religious adverts more disturbing than commercial ones. Commercial adverts only want me to buy something. Religious ones want me to buy into something.

grin I'm on the mobile site Alea. It's the banner thingy at the top, so presume it's paid for.
They've gone now.
I've clearly been chosen to publish a book instead grin

Nope, it's just YOU jane grin take it as a warning?

At the moment I have a banner for 'Durex' at the top. Nice to know they are trying to keep me safe.

I have been getting this for weeks now ginny and the latest is a Christmas Sexlection box along with pleasure gel. Am I tempted?...

This thread has prompted me to look at the top of my page, and I've found an advert with the heading 'Stiff Dog'! hmm
Turns out that it's advertising a joint supplement for dogs, not Viagra as I first thought after reading the other posts on here grin

My mobile site has the 'A' catalogue offers but one on my laptop has had Durex on it for a while blush! A bit 'nudge, nudge/wink, wink' (I'm just ignoring it) grin

annsixty Sun 15-Nov-15 10:35:24

At your peril Marelli grin

vampirequeen Sun 15-Nov-15 10:47:56

Are they linked to the websites we surf? If they are ....what are some of you up to grin?

ginny Sun 15-Nov-15 13:42:45

grin. As if we would tell you !

Luckygirl Sun 15-Nov-15 14:41:12

My Gransnet page has an advert for Durex! smile

Luckygirl Sun 15-Nov-15 14:42:01

Ah - I see I am like Marelli - we have obviously been singled out for this pleasure.

Purpledaffodil Sun 15-Nov-15 15:08:05

Me too! Can't imagine my blameless searches for holidays and oak furniture have prompted this? Unless they misunderstood "wood". blush

janeainsworth Sun 15-Nov-15 15:11:44

I'm now getting adverts exhorting me to do an apprentice in childcareshock

Galen Sun 15-Nov-15 15:15:06

M&S for me?

NanKate Sun 15-Nov-15 15:17:55

I've got John Lewis at the top of my IPad. I must have been spending too much in that store. hmm

ninathenana Sun 15-Nov-15 15:19:00

Starwars Lego at the bottom and a gift card company at the top on my mobile site. I've never seen religious content.
Earlier I had a 'make your own card company called The Dogs Doodahs grin

I have installed AdBlock+ and am not bothered by advertising.

granjura Sun 15-Nov-15 18:30:15

AdBlock here too- what a relief!

Long-time Adblock+ user here...

I'm being told to take a personality test! Oh dear. Many possibilities there.

I have Fisherprice toys and investor adverts.
