> "I do enjoy targeted ads because when I am looking for something those ads could help a lot"

You said could instead of do. Have they ever actually? Do you really click on ads? I don't think I've ever encountered somebody who admits to willingly clicking on ads. The only ad clickers I've seen are people who do it by accident or people who don't realize they're clicking on an ad (usually older folk with poor computer skills.)

I occasionally click the ads when I am shopping online, by 'could' I meant just seeing (not clicking) another options/alternatives of the same type of product helps.

Clicked on multiple ads for a multitude of reasons in the course of the last 38 years. I'd be surprised if I'm the only one in here.

What were you clicking on in 1980?
