I'm on a laptop today rather than my iPad, and there is an All Bran ad playing in the background somewhere when I click on new pages. I don't mind the ads, but the auto-play is intrusive when I can't find the ad to close it.

Jus reporting, thanks.

Waiting for this comment to be snipped.......

You know the site runs on ads, right? No ads no site.

That's all well and good with the regular kind of ads. However ATS has been forcing ads that redirect peoples/my phones browser onto the App Store. not just once. it took me 8 attempts to view the ATS homepage this morning without being redirected to an app that I don't want and didn't click on, only for the same thing to happen as soon as I tried to read a post.

ATS has effectively forced me to use an add blocker just to view the site. I fully understand that this sites revenue is entirely from advertising and did not wish to install the add blocker. However without it I would have no choice but to personally bouycot the site as it was rendered unusable on my phones browser
