If you navigate through links in posts it should (the forum software is supposed to add affiliate information when someone posts a link to Amazon, though I think it's spotty). There are also banners/buttons on other parts of the site, though have been meaning to add them again to the forum footer again.

Date a farmer, obviously.

And sorry, I'm trying to filter some of these (and make them less obtrusive).

Part of what is happening here is that at this time of year, many premium/regular brands have not yet launched new campaigns for the calendar year. So the ads you see across the internet in early January tend to be more bottom-feeder, cheaper stuff than usual. It's still influenced by targeting/browsing history, but more so than other times of year, the cheaper weirder ads have an easier time getting through and beating other ads in auctions, because they are competing with less.

Now I’ve got my excuse lined up for when I get some “dodgy” ads in the future.
