I'd wager a trivial amount of actual sales come from the 'targeted' marketplace ads on this silly website about a game that interests middle-aged white men.
Its downright amazing the amount of time and energy people are wasting on such a nonsensical issue.
When was the last time anybody with half a brain bought a product from a targeted ad?
Don't like the ads... just use an adblocker and move on with your life. I can't believe people even browse the web without one these days.
