Spiceworks and FJ - my world's are colliding and I couldn't be happier!

Just got my first ad for Spiceworks on FJ a few minutes ago which made me grin like an idiot.

Kind of a waste of an ad since I already love and use Spiceworks daily (and have for years) and I don't need the sell...but I love when I see ads for stuff I personally endorse.  Which I am sure means loads to the 3 people reading this.  

Spiceworks is an excellent IT community with great apps which help IT people manage their networks, etc.  Software which is free - still baffled by that since I'd happily pay for it.  

Anyway I am in no way affiliated with them except as a customer/user - just gave me a doubletake as I had Spiceworks open in another window when the ad popped up and for a second I didn't know why they were talking about fundies. :)

Aren't the ads targeted? I assume that's why you'd get one for something you like :) I must have an adblocker on because I don't get any.

I don't have ad blocker or anything...must do that...and my ads are nearly always something I've been googling.  Currently glass vases and holiday websites.

I don't use ad blocker, because I visit a couple sites frequently and if I get a lot out of a free site and enjoy going there I want them to get my ad revenue.  I'm not telling anyone else what to do - but I know ads help pay for bandwidth and like on youtube my favorite youtube channels...I want them to keep making content and if the ads allow them to do that it works for me.  I'm lazy and I like being able to support things without effort or money. :)

I was just surprised as I'd never seen it before.  And sometimes my ads are targeted and sometimes totally random.  Unless the ads know something about me I don't and want me to go to a Christian university, visit Israel, open a Sbarro franchise, and buy teething rings which have been my most frequent lately.  

I don't think those ads know I'm long done with school, broke, and everyone I know already has all their teeth!

So spice works has nothing to do with cooking?

No, it's an IT forum.  But our levels over there for upvotes are peppers on the capsaicin scale.

      I think he’s barking up the wrong tree. This is a small town and many people offer to help with all sorts of things but most people suggested therapy and respite care through insurance and he didn’t get anything but likes and one suggestion of someone’s car dealership contact for the 15 person passenger van request. he also posted about looking for odd jobs… can’t figure out if he works a full time job or what 🤷🏻‍♀️

      Where I life the county mental health provide some respite services for a child with an autism diagnosis. He should start at the department of aging to register his child.

      February is about to begin, and I have one wish. I want Gary to post complaining about how people care more about the "Supper Bowel" than they do about God and hell.

      You have twelve days, Gary. Pretty please?

      I think she's keeping wall up because she sees us as possibly wanting to take away her faith. Which she is very protective of. So she's a bit cautious about us.

      When I was first really starting my recovery/deprogramming there were a lot of people who wanted me to abandon faith altogether. Friends, a therapist, internet strangers. It didn’t matter that it ultimately wasn’t a solution for a number of reasons, it felt like an easy answer for people. There are plenty of reasons why people don’t believe, or choose to stop believing. I have my reasons for maintaining my faith. I don’t feel the need to advertise or “recruit” but there are some nonbelievers that use the same tactics they shame religious people for. 
       

      I’ve gotten pretty used to ignoring certain topics/posters/discussions around here. But there are definitely moments that are really uncomfortable. Part of why I post so irregularly.

      I read the book. TL, DR: Gothard is a creep and a false prophet. The one anecdote that I found surprising was that the older Duggar girls once were hanging around at the mall and they tried on a blond wig and said “You’re ready for headquarters!” meaning that Gothard would find it hot 🤢

      The fact that literally everyone knew Gothard’s type and did fuck all about it is so typical but still so disturbing.
