Talk about irony… Anytime I go into my gmail spam folder to check if there are any non-spam mails that have been marked as spam (of which there have been a total of 2 mails in the past 2 years), most of the mails I encounter these days are regarding “obesity” and “getting slim” and “perfect weight”. Going on a tangent, surprisingly these days the perfect-weight spam are out-numbering the “body-parts-enhancement” spam by a huge margin. Seems the spammers’ target audience is changing.
But the ads that are displayed in the Web Clips, on top of the messages (in this case on top of the spam messages) those ads are nothing related to losing weight, instead they all would help in gaining weight. All ads are from some recipe site and they use Spam (processed meat) as an ingredient.
Going on another tangent, yesterday I noticed that Yahoo Mail includes the ads that it displays in the inbox while forwarding any message. So whenever I get any forwarded message from a Yahoo! account, the Yahoo ads are displayed right in my gmail inbox, but the Google ads are blocked by Adblock. Adblock is not able to block the Yahoo ads, as they are now a part of the message. Seems Yahoo! have a sneaky way to earn revenue…
