New for me today:

Ads seem to be absconding my ATS thread perusals. It seems to distort my ability to scroll down the page. Ads are also popping up in between member posts what the H?

This is ugly and unsettling.

I don't use ad-blocker per ATS Terms & Conditions, and I love ATS so I'm compliant.

But what is this horse heaps?

Wow I wonder why I was not affected by it before.

Sad, because it almost makes the site feel broken and usable.

Just today it started on my android.

I know the site needs income but it is too thick and fast.

Enjoy the site not the advertising bombardment.

It makes the site broken and shady. Like it's designed to make you accidentally click ads.

Kinda hard to enjoy a page that doesn't let me scroll properly.

ATS shouldn't feel this way.

To be honest the ads can get in the way at times. BUT I love ATS and understand the need for them to make money. So I don’t let it bother me.

Agreed mate. ( after an hour of un-called for distraction )
They need to earn a quid. We should however, remember ..it is user generated content. Would be rude to ask for cash.

So ads be it. The concern is in the method.

Yeah and they've asked for cash. Rudeness aside.

But whatev, as you Aussies say. If ATS wants ads to break their site it's no skin off my nose
