I vote for the red flashing scarey 'DONT THROW OUT YOUR FILTER' or something like that. That is just plain scarey, this big red thing flashing!!

woke me up though!

always an upside to everything I guess

Casino ads - there was this one on the bottom of msn messenger every time your mouse accidently rolled over it would play an annoying little jingle. That really annoyed me, not quite as much as the mosquito one but they both should be banned. And the ;casino and smiliey ads that pop up in new window' when you visit some sites are terrible. Death to these ads.

I have a problem with these, however, they are "Ads by Google" so I don't know if anything can be done about it.

Why would a site dedicated to denying ignorance advertise a buy your way through college service?

When you go to the page, you'll get to listen to what this ad sounds like. Why in the world would they make a Flash ad like this for a site?

The Kennedy Space Center ad that pops up on ATS sometimes isn't bad, if they would just get rid of the roaring noise that goes along with it

Yes, the ab-toner is really out of control. When I visit websites, I usually make a note never to return to sites that have #ty ads like this...I'm sure other people have felt this way after seeing/hearing this monstrosity on ATS. Really low class, and something I will never click on. The internet is being destroyed by this kind of garbage, and ats shouldn't promote it.

Whats worse is when there is TWO of those ab-ads on one page, they both play their audio concurrently over each other.... AAARRGGGHH!!

I think the basic rule should be NO NOISE! I'm sure many of us are at work, and sometimes forget to hit mute on our computers. And I'm sure many of us have had people in the next cubicle over from us look over with that evil eye. And I'm sure many of us said have looked over to that cubicle and said "Sorry bout that Carol..... No I'm not web surfing....Are you gonna tell Joe? Thanks, won't happen again." Am I right? everybody? You know how Carol is.

Is there a screening process that can be used to weed out these troublemakers?

I don't see why we need that big annoying banner at the top anyway...the google ads are fine, and probably get a lot more clicks from people, as they aren't designed to annoy the hell out of the web surfer. If the money is really that tight, I bet there would be more luck just starting a drive for donations to keep the site ad free, rather than hoping some people will actually be lured into buying some product through these shady online advertisers...

We were testing a new service that appears unable to negate the audio-playing ads.

Sorry about that... their ads are now removed.

I dont really pay attention to ads. Unless they are the stupid annoying ones that have sound. They should be banned.

The [insert event here] and win a free ringtone ad's are pretty annoying but they are ignorable, unlike the flashing ones.
Does anyone here actually get 'drawn into' clicking these? Bad marketing if you ask me.

Heres my contribution. Not that Im a prude but its kinda crass Not to mention the toolbar is probably spyware too.


There is also another ad that suddenly starts talking extremely loud. Scared the hell out of me the other night.

Ad URL For HornyMatches.com Needed

We've gotten complaints about this, but not the URL for the ad itself (i.e., the actual URL for the link which identifies which ad service is displaying the ad).

If you see this ad or any like it:



Please capture the URL and post it here as with other ads (and as described earlier in this thread).

No, we don't want ads for HornyMatches.com on ATS, if anyone was wondering.


But if you can help us track this ad down, we'll be grateful.
