Don't know how many times in the last 24 hours I've been congratulated as the 999.999th visitor of actually I don't know what. My 3 month on ATS
can't count that many visits yet.
I'm not going to claim my prize as the bouncing message so obvious wants me to. Whatever "the prize" might be, I'm not that stupid to invite
spyware, adware, and/or any other kinds of malicious cookies into my computer.
But it is a big annoyance, a real eye sore to me.
Just that heavy blue flashing on the deep red bouncing, can drive me nuts in minuttes. I scroll down immediately so I avoid the top-banner, just to
get it going as side-banner.
Just don't understand how I can remain the 999.999th.
I'm well aware that the bread and butter for a board like ATS comes from its the ads, but couldn't there be a lower limit as to what should be
accepted? I mean it's not just my eyes that get hurt, spiritually I see it as an insult to my intellect.
Hasn't the level been lowered lately? I also see quit a few lighty dressed females in the ads as well. Not that I mind them, they don't hurt my
But attention-demanding ads do.
