Default think I've gone crazy

Awhile back when logging into myspace I had a bonneville related password but no mention of pontiac or bonneville anywhere on my page yet I noticed that I would see ads for pontiac bonnevilles. I brushed it off as a weird occurance and later attributed it to being that I had belonged to a bonneville myspace group.

Fast foward a few weeks later

I have sinced changed my password but I later see more myspace ads however they are no longer "bonneville" ads but rather ads to a particular model car that I have no refrence at all to on my page except being the password for my myspace account. Now I figure this could be one weird occurance so I'm asking anyone with a myspace to check the ads and see if there is a relevance between ads/password. Don't mention or post the password but if you do notice this occurance post up your findings

My password and the ads do not even correlate at all.

However, the ads I'm getting relates to the fact I'm deaf.

Since Myspace is free, I would assume that it has an ad bot similar like the one here on BC. Weird how it relates to your passwords and the like.

do you type it in every time? if you do then there might be something that tracks what you type. I don't have a myspace, nor will I ever, but I know a little about computers and stuff like this

Ahh yes Key loggers. Got to be careful about those!! Usually an antivirus will pick it up or an Adaware scan.
