Adsense for content apparently has poor reading comprehension

Uh, so you may or may not have noticed that I removed my Google ads. Because you may or may not have noticed that they started featuring ads about how to be a transvestite.

Noah: Are you aware that this ad is about how to dress like a woman?
Erin: Wha?
Noah: There are actually several such ads.
Erin: Uh, that's not exactly my target audience.

So until I sit down and figure out how to teach adsense how to read my content better, I'll be ad-less. Which will be a huge financial blow, since I averaged earnings of about 27 cents a month. And for those of you who don't know, Google holds off on paying you until you've accumulated $100 in your account. I mean, this is going to set the delivery of my check back at least two months. So six years from now, when I'm sitting waiting on that hundred smackaroos to arrive, I'll have to be that much more patient.

My question is, how did adsense go from posting fun links for cool pajamas to panties for men? My apologies. I gather that none of you readers are transvestites, since none of you clicked on any ads for over a week. Either that, or you just hadn't worked up the courage to follow "how to dress like a woman" down the rabbit hole.

So yeah, I'm hereby dubbing Noah my advertising manager. Direct any and all complaints to him. I do.
