Yeah, mirrors.
Oh and don't forget about the Road Runner drop down ad, errr, very annoying.

Ok, here is the list of annoying ads but will anything be done about it?
What next?

I kind of like the smiley one. i dont mind it as much as i guess the hate iut brings out in others.

Throwing my 2 cents worth in on the Mirrors ad. It is creepy and disturbing and often times even refreshing the page doesn't get rid of it.

And Denied, that is the worst "Ohmygosh! No way!" It at the top of the screen for maximum annoyance, and the robot "Bite me".

Hahaha! That one has to be the most stupid of all ads, but then I guess people are pressing it!

Simple tasks for simple people!

The flashing "you have three messages waiting for you" ad that looks like it was based on an old windows 98.

its misleading

So how long will it take before we don't have to look at the creepy "Mirror" ad? Especially when that one character streches their mouth open. GAWD, if I see that one more time! I agree with the others. It's disturbing and I wish it to be gone!

Unlikely, 'tis a prime target for the movie people here. the site owner is probably at home rgiht now with a big bag of cash that i doubt he wants to be seperated from.

Firefox and ad block plus makes it whre you do not see/hear the annoying ads.

I am really annoyed by the "Take a crash course to learn more ... the computer is personal again" because it interferes with page loading and scrolling. The top banner ad doesn't seem to be as much of a problem as the sidebar ads, which insist on playing all the way through before the screen will continue scrolling.

(don't know if it matters, but I use Firefox on a Mac)

My anti virus protection keeps alerting me to a "HTML/Crypted.Gen".

Only on this site. I have to click twice every time and sometimes it's frequent. Very annoying.

I have an AD issue. There is a banner ad I often come across offering a free 10 day trial of the mmorpg World of Warcraft.

I have never played this game and only real knowledge of it comes from an episode of South Park I saw. So I thought, since it was free, that I would click on the link and generate some revenue for ATS but its a dead link.

Whats up with that SO? Is there anything we can do?

Been treated to a new 's very loud Pac-Man sound. If you thought the talking emote smiles were loud shouting a prolonged "hell-ooo" wait until you get a listen of this and it does not stop until you refresh the page to get a replacement ad.

Makes me want to visit 's office and give them a very loud and prolonged unpleasent sound of my own.

I have a problem with the banner add at the top, that says something about a gift, and give you two options, return/accept

you are then lead to a bs mobile subscribtion page, where it tells you yout true crush or some crap. but thats not the worst part, read the T&C

I'm getting one for Rhumatory Arthritus that keeps sliding down, even though I do my best to avoid the darned thing.

The main thing that gets me (in addition to the distraction) is the fact that it advertises itself as "RA" - which for someone such as myself - tends to trigger an association with Ritual Abuse (RA/SRA).

Every time that darn ad slides down, I get triggered for a moment, and my thoughts go to an uncomfortable subject.

Any chance of asking them to "fix" the ad so it doesn't slide down?

Thanks a million, SO. I know you're busy...

*edit for errant letter.

Oh my god. Has anyone got the Pop up on "pathology?" I clicked a link over to BTS wich i was automatically not signed in for(but was on ats, really annoying)
and a womans chest popped up with an incision mark, it has a x to click so i moved my mouse oevr to it, and the chest opened up revealing horrificly gory chest cavity.

That was a shocking ad. i think it will scare kids away from this site

I hate that one!!!! I'm for getting rid of any 'talking' ads! I'm sitting at my computer in the middle of the night, all is dead quiet..... then suddenly 'Smiley' screams "Hellooooooooooo!" and scares the living crap out of me and I jump 6 inches in my chair! If anything, it makes me not want to click on this ad ever!

Please, I beg of you, make it go away!!!!!!!!!!!
