Anyone else getting a really fecking annoying ad for travel to Saudi Arabia on this site? Had there been any possibility of my visiting that country, it is not gonna happen now!



... IMHO, of course.

No Joe, my default is the Army currently, it depends on what your browsing history is though so be careful what you disclose!

That's the thing. I never have had, I do not currently have and (because of the fecking pop-up) will never have any curiosity, desire or intention to visit the said country.

I'll clear my phone cache.

If you don't have an obvious browsing history then it will be the company spending money to advertise on sites or geographical areas that are relevant. So the army are looking for young fit guys and gals they will go for rugby/football sites in the UK.

What connection does Honolulu/USA have with Saudi?

I could be very wrong, but I like to create a mental picture of each poster based on their contributions and I don't get the feeling there are too many 'young, fit guys and gals' posting on this site (no offence intended)! Not sure the army's hitting its intended demographic, but enlisting seems marginally more appealing than holidaying in Saudi Arabia.

Flipping heck Tom, don't run us all down, in my mind I have the body of a 19 year old as for mental age my family are continually telling me to grow up, so I clearly hit the demographic don't I?

I dont think Saudi Arabia is on my top ten list, in fact its not in my top 194 (apparently there are 195)

The worst holiday destination IN THE WORLD Woodpecker...strong stuff. Surely there must be a few worse places?! Given a choice between Saudi Arabia and Yemen you might have a tricky decision to make. Interesting (well, to me at least) that Rwanda trying to promote tourism there- big ad campaign at Arsenal for starters.

Still getting ads for Saudi Arabia JTF?! The army seems to have pulled out here and there's a dull ad for IBM and one for mobility furniture, both of which seem far more suitable methinks!

Can you even go to the Kingdom as a tourist? I thought you had to have a relative or something.

Seems an odd place to go for a non Muslim, seeing as you are banned from going to all the intresting places. (Hajj, Mecca, the Kaaba, Medina, etc).

Perhaps I underestimated the number of Muslims in the Bath support.

How can they ban non-Muslims from visiting such sites? For starters, how would they know, but I'm also picturing the stoning scene in Life of Brian and thinking that appropriate dress amongst the vast crowds would certainly go unnoticed!

That can, and they do.

Frankly, I would t want to mess with the Saudi religious police.

As in several Middle Eastern countries people be they visitors or residents don't have anything like the same freedoms and permissions. That is why Europe with all its failings can be so attractive.

Chippenham- are you suggesting they wouldn't see the funny side? Hugely disappointing!

Sorry to restart an old thread but it bought a smile to my face. Today I'm seeing an advertisement offering me a 'lingerie styling appointment' where I can 'let their expert Lingerie Stylists find me the perfect fit from their range of A-J cup bras'.

Now, I'm not sure of their target audience or how their algorithm works but I'm fairly sure that a 40y.o. male blacksmith is not the sort of person who usually buys himself bras. Even for Christmas.

I do have radio 4 on all day in the forge and the Archers is supposedly set near me, however if you're referring to Chris the farrier, whilst I grew up around horses, the closest I've got to shoeing a horse was telling a donkey to f*ck off. (apologies for shoehorning a blacksmithing joke in there)
