ATS why do you have a banner ad cover 1/4 of my screen nearly every time I navigate to a different page? Then I have to wait a specific period of time before the "x" appears so I can close it.

Forget about browsing ATS on a mobile device. The stupid ad covers almost my entire screen.

It is beyond obnoxious. Does it really have to be that obnoxiously large and why make me wait before I can close the stupid thing? You've already pissed me off with ridiculous size of the banner ad.

ATS does not do the ads.

You simply need to identify the ad so they know what you are talking about and they will look into it .

They do so all the time.

That assumes that the ad is not sent by your phone service ... some are.

Calm down mate.

Yes, I am having the same trouble on both my mobile and PC. It's the Better Call Saul ad, unfortunately. That show looks cool.

No ads!? Then how will I find hot singles in my area?

What I find particularly troubling aside from the banners you mentioned is the ad tracking on this site.

I use Ghostery and every time I come to ATS, I'm being tracked by over 76 individual tracking entities.

That's freaking ridiculous.

This is the first time I've ever had trouble.

It's a big ad.

Just to clarify...it is not just on my mobile phone. It is on the ATS website on my computer. It is beyond obnoxious. "Better Call Saul" ad covers 1/4 of my screen every few pages I navigate on the website. The fact that I have to wait 8 seconds before the stupid "X" appears so I can close the damn thing is like pouring rubbing alcohol into an open wound.

I wish I had time for that. I'm too busy installing new software the popup says I need to remove the virus it installed when its banner popped up.

Thanks for the headsup on a cool program.


Mine only says "4" are. And 2 of them are Google God, which is embedded everywhere you can click on the web just about. If I "the extremist" have 19 times less craopla than you a newer user does, then surely that's an "ID10T problem".
