Troubling on so many levels

…that Google’s allegedly context-aware advertising service on Gmail gives me the Advertising text:

Vakre Thai jenterhttp://www.ThaiLoveLinks.comThailandske jenter + norske menn. Se profiler og bli kontaktet-GRATIS
right above an e-mail conversation with my wife. The norwegian text means “Beautiful Thai girls – http://www.ThaiLoveLinks.com – Thailandish girls + norwegian men. See profiles and get contacted – FREE”.
D’uh! I’m a dane – and a married one, for that – living in Sweden! Don’t really know whether to laugh or cry, you know?
Apart from the obvious stupidity of it, the indirect endorsement of  such obviously racist sites, which also seem like an open invitation for white-washing of human trafficking, doesn’t exactly add to my respect for Google.
