So you opened the ATS home page without logging in first?
In that case, you get substantial more Ad's then when logged in, and via a FireFox browser.
The latest FireFox version blocks standard nearly all advertising Ad's in the right portion of all ATS pages!
It's a delight......but probably not for the site owners, who base their site strategy on the income from ads.
Which I don't blame them for, but it will turn out to be a lost battle in the near future for them, FireFox ADD-ON's for blocking annoying
advertising are offered in big quantities, and for IE too.
This is a result of decennia of abuse by the huge advertising industry, trying to force down our throats a plethora of useless and even dangerous
goods and foods. They quickly learned that overloading any population with endless identical messages will end in the majority of that population to
accept as truth that their product is the best offer to grab.
Which it obviously is not in most cases, for the more critically minded under us.
Examples given : McDonalds, Coca Cola, 7-Up, Wall-mart, gas slurping US made cars, cigarettes, useless and dangerous medicines, etcetera.
