Hey CM - I don't speak spanish!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

 I know there are alot of people on here that do speak spanish. But I don't.  I've noticed that somethings are customized just for me. Like the ads on the side. I'm a horsie person and it picks up horse stuff for my ads (due to cookies, I'm told)

But why do I get Spanish ads then?  And the one that always wants me to take a survey?  Its written in Spanish when it pops up on my screen and the secondary language is English.

Are yours in English or Spanish?

Nothing against spanish - I would love to learn to speak it. But currently I don't and I find it annoying. This appears to be an English site so why do I keep getting things in Spanish?

My last name isn't even remotely spanish so thats not how i get it. I just wonder if i somehow flagged a database somewhere in CM world. Sounds like i'm not the only one though.

Those I don't notice, but when I get taken to a survey and it's Spanish (and it's been happening a lot here lately), I get annoyed.

 The survey thing that pops up is always in Spanish for me too. It doesn't bother me too much. What really bugs me is that when my husband googles something for his woodworking projects, it always brings those ads up on here. Why does it never use ads for things I look up? lol

I get the same ad.  I get at almost every day, it drives me crazy.  I am not of Spanish decent, am not in an Spanish groups, I am wondering why the Spanish ad.  On a side note, I can read it.  But I don't even want to take the survey in English much less Spanish.

 I don't get pop up survey's

 I don't usually get them in Spanish but many times the surveys say I have completed them and I haven't. That was annoying because I try to do them all.
I did notice ads for a perfume I had recently looked up...dumb me thought it was a sign that I should buy it, LOL! <<< it's ok, you can laugh!
