Asks Jeeves things.

You've got a lonesome road to walk, and it ain't along the railroad track, and it ain't along the black-top tar you walked a hundred times before.
I'll tell you where the real road lies: between your ears, behind your eyes. That is the path to paradise, likewise the road to ruin.

I think they scan the threads for certain words, and then produce advertisements based on what is being discussed. For instance, if you are discussing drum kits, the bot will then tell the adserver to produce ads for drum kits on that page.

But doesn't the Google Adense Bot do that as well as the MSN ones?

But I don't see any ads except the ones for like Evony at the side and top.

edit: ok, so I say that and then go back to the general page and get ads about interracial dating services.

Robot know-all butler. Out of bitterness at the success of his rival Google, he frequently 'malfunctions' deliberately and emits STDs through the monitor while cackling madly and force-redirecting users to furry dead child porn.
Professional pessimist. Conservative socialist. Coffee addict. Fun at parties.
Freedom is when people agree with you, and the more people you can force to act like they agree the freer society is.
You are the trolley problem's conductor. You could stop the train in time but you do not. Nobody knows you're part of the equation. You satisfy your bloodlust and get away with it every time.

I use adblock plus so I don't see any ads at all, I've always assumed that NS normally has loads of ads all over the place.

Ew, this thread got scientology ads! At least the post page got the ol' Evony "Is this a sex game?" ads...
"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.

I usually use adblock, but it blocks a lot of things I actually want to see which gets a bit annoying so I've turned it off.
The Jolt forum had an ad after the first post in a thread, which was horrible in addition to ads at the top, bottom and sides. This isn't so bad.
