Really, political ads

Political posts are banned but political ads are just fine.


Anything for a buck.

I think the political ads are more of a function of the ad software associated with the page based on your browser history. If you look up political stuff or appear more potentially responsive to political ads or Bloomburg just spent another gazillion dollars on ads then you're likely to see a political ad.

This. If you're seeing political ads on Camaro5, it's because of your browsing habits.

I guess it makes sense that I would get ads for democrats on this device, I use it for searching porn.

The ads you see are based on your browsing history. We don't control it. If we did, nobody would ever see a Mustang ad on here ... and a number of people have made complaint threads about just that over the years.
