I was wondering if it would be possible to take that Clown Advertisement off of ATS? Maybe a member vote?

I don't mind the other Ads at all but everytime that laughing Clown comes up I launch out of my chair! I like to listen to some tunes while browsing the threads and that one seems to come up quite a bit, tainting my music experience and scaring the BEJESUS out of me!

Any ad but that would be very appreciated! Thanks Guys!

Yeah... Pretty irritating. much like my ex-wife!


Maybe if they would provide an off button or volume button... It's fun to splat the sucker, but not when everyone in the office is looking at you like you've lost your mind.

It seems like I'm constantly getting it. That laugh is the most annoying thing I've heard in awhile.

We're on it...

Personally, I want to nuke the sucker... Not just throw pies at him.

I have Norton Internet Security and I've never seen this clown. Y'all need better security software.

Blocking ads costs ATS money. Thanks a lot!

Amen! The only thing that works to shut the idiot up is to refresh the screen and hope that something else comes up.

I found that you can also right click it and click on rewind and it stops with the laughing.

Thank Vishnu someone brought this up, I was gonna, but I was a little unsure about if I should.

I HATE that clown add, the first time I heard it I jumped off my chair into a primitive crouch position.

I hate clowns, and that laughing...*shivers*

The software blocks all ads, not just those at ATS. Save your anger for someone who deserves it.

I don't need better security software, I allow ATS to send those ads through because I know those help pay the bills and keep this great site free.


I am only complaining about that clown.

If you are bypassing your software to allow ads through to keep ATS free, then you have nothing to whine about.

I'm starting to wonder about the median age of this forum. I'm probably too old to be mingling here.

Edit: BTW, I don't click on ads anyway, so don't get your Pampers in a bundle.

It is only for 1 ad that I am whining about, not all the ads, I think I or anyone for that matter would be entitled to that.

As far as the median age there are as many 30 somethings and above (myself included) as there are 29 somethings and below from what I can ponder.

In the words of the great Rodney King, "Why can't we all just get along?"

If that phrase is working for you as well as it did for King (i.e. not at all), just sit back and ask yourself, What Would Skippy Do?

I dont blame ATS at all but who ever made that clown ad is a %#@$%^
It just laughs over and over again with no end. The other ads have no sound or only a brief sound every once and awhile which isnt that bad.
