Google AdChoices…

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. How about, two pictures?

AdChoices "pledge"

So, the important points of the above text are:

“It’s our goal to make these ads as relevant and useful as possible for you. Google doesn’t create categories, or show ads, based on sensitive topics such as race, religion, sexual orientation, or health.

Sounds reasonable. Let’s see the ad that actually got me here.

An AdSense ad about dating, based on religion, while watching a video-clip from a popular Christian band

One can claim that the ad is targeting single people, but it is actually targeting the intersection of Christian and Single, thus effectively targeting both.

Google, don’t be evil.
