I couldn't get the URL to come up, but I had an Ad saying I was the 999,999th visitor come up on My ATS, and it's come up at least twice. Can we at least tell them we've gone past our 2,500,000th post?

Link to Ad



It is the constant flashing of this Ad that has my head spinning. I'm not one to ever complain of the advertisements on this site, but the constant flashing of this one has forced me to speak up.

Has anyone had this ad come up??? It's a banner ad on the top and I think it's a flash ad because it talks and won't shut up...EXTREMELY LOUD.

I wasn't able to get a snapshot of the ad...because I had to close my browser windows as soon as possible. But, today one page had an ad with sound that said something to the effect of "I'm hot and sexy..." and it went on an on. Unfortunately, I was browsing at work and my volume was up kind of loud so it blared all through my office.

Ads with sound need to go or those of us at work who need to have sound enabled for other reasons can't browse at work anymore.

The flashing Winner, Winner, you have won a free* laptop, must go. Flashing advertizements have been known to set off epileptic seizures. The ad is also False as you have not won a laptop at all. Since this is a clearly deceptive ad, it does not belong on a web site that seeks to Deny Ignorance. Deception is far from what ATS should be about.

LOL, I did the same thing, except I did not realize it was speakers until after I had killed the power (not knowing what was happening, I do mean flip the power supply switch in this case - NOT good on HDD's).

In my case, however, I thoroughly went over my PC, first all the connections in the case, then booting to BIOS, and then to Safe Mode. Only when I came back to ATS did I realize the correlation.

No, seriously, those flashing adds have got to go. My eyes hurt. My brain hurts. My inteligence hurts every time I am told I have won something when it is just a scam. ATS supporting Scam advertizing is like the Pope advertizing pedophilia for priests. It is just wrong.

Yes, I just got it, and it scared the heck out of me.


It was a flash ad, loading from www.officialtvoffers.com

Clicking on the banner brought me to getbigguns.com

Edit - oops on tags.

So, this thread seems to imply that Skeptic Overlord is monitoring the situation and will remove adds that members deem disruptive... But Wait.... Numerous members and even SuperModerators have deemed the seizure inducing flashing advertisements as horrendous yet nothing is being done about it. I even sent a U2U to the creator of this thread asking specifically as to whether or not there is any intent to actually do anything about adverts that people complain about, and I never got any response.

My questions are: Does Skeptic overlord actually have a hit list, or is this a made up topic designed to pacify members with a false sense that anyone cares? Given that numerous people in this thread have complained about these flashing adverts, and have even gone so far as to open up other threads specifically complaining about them, Why is nothing being done about it?

ATS is all about Deny Ignorance, but it seems that with this case they actually promote it. A thread about negative advertisements seems to be offering false hope. Is ignorance bliss or is there a conspiracy to make members submit to harassing adverts? This add in particular is bad because it offers a free computer but in all reality there is no free computer. It is clearly false advertising. By keeping this add up ATS is promoting lies which is the opposite of denying ignorance.

Yeah, I know this is a rant, but since so many people have talked about the flashers, and since my U2U went unanswered I figured I'd bump this thread up again and see if anyone notices.

I recall receiving your U2U and apologize for not responding.


The goal of this thread is indeed to give us a centralized location for reporting nuisance ads. I've seen quite a few get removed after being posted here.

However, what ads are kept and what are removed is up to the Overlord to decide, and I can't speak on his behalf regarding why some ads are removed and why some aren't.

I'm pretty sure he keeps an eye on this thread, because nasty ads posted here do disappear now and then.

As for why those obnoxious seizure-inducing flashing "WINNER!" ads are still popping up, I can only guess.

Hey, you never know: maybe they contain subliminal messages forbidding him from removing them.

If you don't like the banner ads block the damn things. Here is a site to kill them. It's pretty simple. You just save the no-ads.pac file anywhere. I'm not sure about I.E. as I seldom use it but firefox you go to Tools>Options>Advanced>network>Connection settings and enter the path to the file in the bar under "automatic proxy config URL" in example my path is file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/sadams/My%20Documents/no-ads.pac. Tick the bubble and hit o.k. The only time I ever have to set it back to "direct connection to the internet" is at downloads.com and a few other places but it is worth it!!!!!


I have been doing this for months and where those annoying banners used to be, it just says "The proxy server is refusing connections"

I'm disappointed to see that the flashing "you've won a laptop" banner has yet to be terminated. Also, it now appears that they are selling "alien i-beam fragments" from the Roswell crash, as I have been seeing in a few ads lately on here. The sad part is that many people on here would probably actually purchase one of these.

Like I said I don't see what the problem with banners are if they never load
