I think what we need to understand is that ATS can not keep everybody happy. Just because you see an advert on the ATS pages, it does not necessarily
mean that they endorse it. From what I have garnered over the time I've been with ATS, is that they only endorse one thing, neutrality.

This is not solely directed at your post Terapin, as it is a collection of posts along the same lines, but I really fail to see why some members can
get so upset over a simple advertisement. We all gather here for one reason. To discuss the content of our community. The adverts pay the bills so
we can continue to discuss here, at no charge. I don't care if the adverts show Richard Simmons in his birthday suit, doing the moonwalk across my
screen. If they pay the bills, I'm all smiles. Ok well, that one might be a little much. But nonetheless, you catch my drift. The ads are just
that, the ads.
As long as I am not hearing that dreaded, "Oh My God!" emoticon, I couldn't care less what is being flashed on my screen. I'm here to read the
posts, not the advertisements.
