For the last 7-8 days, when I log into Yahoo and visit Yahoo Mail, Yahoo News and MyYahoo, all of the ad space is dedicated to Oracle. I page through emails and articles and stock listings and all sorts of stuff and while I do get served several different variations of ads, they are all very similar and they are all for Oracle.
Somebody bump the robot making these algorithmic choices, it's stuck on Oracle.
If this is Behaviorial Marketing, then their BM stinks.

Maybe they've read your ABW posts and connect you (perhaps rightly so) with the Oracle within the Matrix...

Not surprising at all. A while ago I posted about A-B testing that I did by using a random key for php includes - alternately serving Goog and YPN ads.
That testing did lead me to remove most of the YPN that I was using. I was hoping to give my readers a wider selection by alternating the ad source. I could even serve twice as many Goog as YPN blocks. But Yahoo's targeting became so atrocious over the last few months that I replaced the YPN stuff with some aff text links and small banners that better fit the sites.
