Thumbs down I don't get this.

WTH???

First thing I saw when I entered this site was the banners for the MapleStory hacking site. I mean there is something wrong. So what MT have been deleted because the money of donations goes to Hacking site and Porn site and now this site is hosting Hacking banners???

I need someone to explain this now.

For the last time, I can't block the inappropriate ads unless you guys report them properly. I've blocked the maple hack ads; it takes Google a bit to catch up.

For the record, any donations do not support the Google ads or the sites which they advertise. You're free to check the internet to see if there's another website hosted at MyMMOGames.net. I assure you there is not.

[My thoughts] I think the adds are randomized. It doesn't actually mean that mog supports hacking.

Yup, the ads target things you've searched for or viewed as well. I've never seen the maple hack ads.

This attempt to throw MyTrickster's deceptive practices back against me made me lol, though.

My computer is totally clean for virus, got Zone Alarm and other things like that. Also I don't play MapleStory and I am totally anti-hacks so I don't get why I should get this "targeting banners"? But still I was mad and I found it is strange that the same site (Maple story hacks) that was one of the reasons why MT got deleted, also appears in this site.

"First of all I thought the whole story was a big LIE. I mean someone realized the donations of MT was used for dirty side sites. Then he deleted MT and this is the new MT with dirty side sites?"

This is not accusations, this is only what I thought when I saw this Maple Story Banner. Now I don't know, I can't be sure of nothing. I still need clarifications :/

[My thoughts] Me thinks that you're metal? And as said before, the ads are a combination of the stuff you searched/surfed and random ads.

Learn how Google ads work before you come on here spouting nonsense.

Uh, I`ll give you clarifications. You probably saw that site cause Google is seeing the threads about MT hosting porn sites and hacks. Google said "OOOH THEY LIKE TALKING ABOUT HACKS AND MAPLESTORY!" Then Google went through its long list of ads and said "AH HA! PERFECT AD FOR THESE PEOPLE" and that is the reason why you saw that ad. MOG does not... /facepalm... host MapleStory hack sites... I know the site creator and I`ll guarantee you doesn`t do these kinds of things. If anything, the closest thing he would do is watch porn 8D.

Let's not point out finger without a sufficient proof.

Can't really blame him/her after what had happened.

If Google can't find anything to use in your browsing history, it instead randomly pick out an ad from its stocks. It's a complete and total coincidence you got that hack ad. It's has been reported though so it should be blocked soon.

And everyone's a bit on the edge because of the series of events that happened. Try not to get offended with what people might say ^^;;

No need to be agressive against me I said this is not accusations, only what I ve got in my mind when I entered this site. Also I am pretty sure that I will not be the only one who found this whole story (MT things etc.) really strange.

But still I agree I don't know how google ads work. I don't even knew what was an "ad" before now. So please don't blame me I am not an internet pro and what I have said before could be shared by anyone who enter this site and see "Free maple story hacks" banner.

But huh so someone can explain to me how does this Google thing work?

Google ads parses the page for keywords. It also checks any cookies on your computer (that it can read) and tries to display ads relevant to the content of the site and your browsing history.

If it can't find anything it displays at random.

Google ads are hosted on Google's servers. So, if you want to be pissed at someone for helping hack sites, go gripe at Google because we don't deal directly with the advertisers.
