Are there any good ad networks somewhat like the now-deceased “The Deck” that explicitly focus on serving “dumb” digital ads? (i.e. non-targeted/privacy-respecting)

You would think DuckDuckGo would love setting up something like this, but the only way to buy ads on DDG seems to be by just purchasing Microsoft ads which also end up getting DDG targeting

also re: “you’re not the customer you’re the product”, having now interacted with the ad buying side of most of the big ones, they also suck at building products for their “actual” customers of ad buyers

well well well, case in point, I just got this with zero actual explanation

rep claims they intentionally suspend all new accounts. gotta actively keep people from giving you their money I guess


FWIW, Google also suspended my account as an apparent matter of routine
