I couldn't find a Rant section but I just gotta say ATS, these new ads that enlarge and force you to close them every couple seconds are ANNOYING!! I promise you I've been on ATS a lot less lately simply because of those ads.

Of course move this or delete it or whatever you do.

Relax, the ads are not all bad, without them you'd probably have to pay to use this site, besides it only takes the flick of a wrist and a click on the mouse to make the "marketing weapon" go away


A weapon is a tool used to apply force for the purpose of causing harm or damage. Weapons are used in hunting, attack, self-defense, or defense in combat.

I'm not saying or implying there should be no ads, I just personally find the forced interaction ones I need to click every 4-5 seconds very annoying and disruptive.

Sorry, but, get over it, it's a window you need to click an X on, big deal

I don't find it "Right honorable" to misinterpret what someone says and then to totally discount his feelings...

I was annoyed; what's your point, to try and make it worse? Ultimately you're right, it's NOT a big deal and I wasn't making it such. My point was to communicate how I feel to the people who purchase annoying ads.

Thanks Signals and KyoZero. I've never had any problem with pop-ups except on ATS this last month. Maybe I'll check out what you said. =)
