"Opting out" of personalized ads doesn't block ads? In order to block personalized ads I have to.... wait for it.... opt in to receiving them in the first place?
You have opted out but you can opt in at any time.
About personalized ads
With personalized ads, we can improve your ad experience by showing you ads related to websites you visit, recent searches and clicks, or information from your Gmail inbox.
Google tries to show you the most relevant ads, whether or not you're opted in to seeing personalized ads. While we often match ads with specific pages (based on the page content or the search terms you enter), additional information helps us personalize your ads.
Why these ads?
Find out why we showed you these ads when you searched for "NOD32 AntiVirus." Opt in to block specific advertisers' ads if you don't find them helpful.
Who's on first? I don't know... 3rd base When did this start, I only noticed this a day or two ago...
