OK, so, I have no idea what the heck just happened, but, while i was reading over the thread Prove to me that Dems and Reps are different political parties then out of no where all of a sudden, some weird commercial or something started playing out loud over my speakers. Now, I am currently in Iraq, so the connection here isn't too great, so usually podcasts, and video streams, etc, load slow, and skip a lot. So all i heard was something about "what's better? video game violence or real life violence?"

There was some other stuff too that I could not make out too well, as it was skipping, then some music, then more talking, guy almost sounded like Chris Rock... I looked to see if maybe someone's post had an embed in it or something, but found nothing... I even cloesd the page, waited, heard nothing, and when I reopened it, about a minute later, it started up again.
Has anyone else ever had this happen before on this site? Or even heard of this happening? I know sometimes other websites do that, have some advertising, just kinda starts or pops up over everything, but this didn't even seem like a real commercial. And this page was the only one I had open. Answers? Anyone?

I'm not crazy I swear. *adjusts tinfoil hat*

Strange - today I hear what sounds like a door slam (lol) through my speakers - at 1st I thought it was that god awful GI Joe Ad - but the volume is muted on the actual ad?

So I too am getting a weird 'door slam' noise every 5 minutes ot so off the ATS site?

It's hot. Very hot. And boring. But the good news is that I believe it's ready and conditioned for the N.W.O now that we have embedded our own leaders.
I Actually just wrote about it last night. (a little off topic) if you want to check it out, it's What have we done? (a soldier's essay)

Was it an actual add? I don't even know. It was just a sound byte, there was no video, or any kind of visual advertisement anywhere, and i don't even think it was really advertising anything.
hehe, I don't know, maybe I'm losing my mind.

You didn't perhaps have this thread open in one of your windows?

Reading your post, it quickly reminded me of a virus I somehow obtained last month. I would have absolutely nothing opened (windows, programs, etc), but a voice would speak (the voice of Adam Corolla) for roughly 5 seconds and then stop. A minute would go by and music would play for 5 seconds then stop. This would continue on and on and on.

Took me roughly 2 days to rid of the virus, but I just wanted to share that with you.

Good luck and be safe out there!

Well I guess it's good to know I'm not crazy, or at least I am not the only crazy one here.... one or the other. (not sure which it is yet, though) I'm going to run a scan on my computer, now. Thanks Quazze. Do you remember what the virus was? I don't know why my computer hasn't picked it up yet, if in fact I do have it. Or how you got rid of it?

Which thread is that? I thought the thread I linked to explains it? If the amounts required were upped to 300 I missed the announcement/thread - which isn't impossible.

Ah. So it is 300. Thanks for the clarity.

As for the 14 flags... Damn that's so close, yet so far. If I were you I'd create one big momma of a thread to close in on the target.

Ad Nauseam

Sometimes obnoxious ads get added to the rotation that do irritating things like play loud noises that can induce cardiac arrest if you have music cranked up (as I so often do).

Our beloved SkepticOverlord has made it clear that such ads can and will be removed if we let him know about them.

Many moons ago, I started a thread for precisely that purpose, so if you discover an ad you would like to never see (or hear) again on ATS, please let us know:

Worst Ads Ever! (SkepticOverlord's Ad Hitlist)

Ads are necessary for keeping ATS running, but so are our members. When faced with a conflict between obnoxious ads and good members, the choice has always been clear.

Members always come first.
