On-line advertising fail

Been reading up on immigration.  Post coming soon.  But just had to comment on this absurd ad I just received:



Seriously?!  All the great algorithms now that keep showing me the DVD player I’ve got in my Amazon cart and haven’t pulled the trigger on (my wife has something to say about that, if she’s reading this), political websites, etc., and I get a horrible ad to meet local single girls.  I’m going to assume this is not targeted, but goes to all readers of this article, in which case 1) The Hill needs to re-think their advertising and 2) the single girls people need to re-think their advertising.  Dumb all around.
