The banner ads
Some, if not all the ads, on this site and others, tell me horny singles are waiting to talk to me. Other less inhibited ones are willing to more!
Depending on whether I'm on GayTorrent or not these are either men or women, all of them horny and all 150 miles away from me in Grand Rapids, MI, USA. It would be quite a drive to get a little strange, considering gas prices – luckily they are willing to chat online or cam. These people are gorgeous, fit and somehow incapable of finding dates through human interaction. And all one-hundred-fifty miles away. It's just my luck-- here I am, gay and alone in Northern Michigan and there are tens of randy singles a half a days drive away from me. Some even look familiar in an imageboard or dlist porn actor sort of way.
But get this. I switched from AT&T dsl to quicker than shit cable broadband.
Suddenly, this pool of handsome, yet desperate singles have migrated to a town just 40 miles away! Maybe one day my ISP will come to my hometown and I'll see my neighbor up here.
In all seriousness, don't you think there would be a way to more accurately pinpoint someones location? Even though I suppose I appreciate the fact 'the man' thinks I'm half-way across the state.
Just my rant, thanks.

All of my ads are for beautiful, fit people who live in my own little town in Ohio.
But when I'm in Los Angeles, the same people have all suddenly temporarily moved to LA; no doubt so they can be handy in case I have need of their companionship.

mine come from "Garden Grove, California" and I am NOT in USA :P
Let me bet: I'm in Germany but I'm sure I will see the same guys :)
Might be you overlooked the last sentence?
*Persons appearing in photographs may not be actual members. Other data for illustrative purposes only.
Trenteviso - what I thought you were going to say was "those same people have now moved to another state when I'm in LA!"
** added today 1/25/2011 - I must have been tired when I posted this - Trenteviso did say exactly what I was driving at. The banner ads are the same people, where ever you happen to be at the moment. Yeah, Mgr, I know the disclaimer is "not actual members" but what is the point of showing, "Jim, hot guy 28, from _____" if he isn't REALLY available? Maybe he isn't even Gay in real life. But they want to give the impression these are real people so the disclaimer shouldn't be allowed.
Just like on diet product ads - they show someone who is really fat, then after he/she loses a ton and the disclaimer is "results not typical" - - well then advertise it to say "there is a snowball's chance in hell that you will lose 100 pounds in two weeks, but Buffy here did and look how beautiful she is now. Might as well give it a try?"
But my favorite is the one for Herpes - I forget the name of the product but they have all these people outside, camping, riding horses, swimming etc. And they say exacly the following - " I take Wonderpills, they control my herpes with a low risk of sexual side effects." HUH? Guy A with brown hair, you are supposed to portraying an actual person, so you should be able to say YES it had side effects or NO it didn't. He was able to say flatly "Wonderpill controlled my herpes symptoms." Right?
I'm sure these companies are glad I'm not writing consumer truth in advertising laws, they'd all be out of business! :)

I couldn't really tell you what the ads say as I don't have ads on the site as I've donated multiple times and as such, have the power to turn ads off completely. :)
i don't see the ads too hehehe
