Why do the ads troll the forums?

I know this is somewhat of an odd question but I believe the advertisements are in violation of the T&C which has been recently changed to prevent political bashing. A lot of the ads are in favor of Palin or show John McCain on them. Very few of them show Barack Obama on there. I think that there needs to be more Democratic Partisan advertisements to make it more balanced.

I accuse the ATS ads of trolling and they should be banned.

Actually, I think that ownership of ATS is actually left-wing in their ideology, but I can't say I have seen any direct affect of their personal opinions for the most part. Ads are ads, and the owners are capitalists before anything else most likely.

The owners of the ads are probably capitalistic but I am getting sick of seeing Palin's picture and a "the Palin problem" logo on it. I also saw another ad with politician talk featured from John McCain that said "I love our underdog status". Clearly these ads are partisan and they must be banned. Or at least changed.

I disapprove of these ads, I give them three thumbs downs...

The ATS staff and owners appreciate all feedback be it criticism or praise. Obviously in this case it's criticism so I would like to direct you to the The ATS Issues Thread where all these concerns should be expressed. I will be closing this thread and look forward to you making your viewpoint known in the proper thread listed above.

Thank you so much for your understanding.

The ATS Staff
