The thing is I am almost certain they're (ATS) is getting paid from this company every time someone (accidentally) hits that ad and opens some kind of hit-counter.
I understand the need to make money but it shouldn't be at our emotional expense though.
So I feel ATS is treating us like commodity now!
It's bad enough the world is out to get us and doesn't give a crap about us (and only cares about their almighty dollar) but now ATS? Is there no where one can go (Internet and in the world) that's enjoyable and NOT about MONEY anymore?

I think it's google AdSense. I use it too. Anyone with a website or blog can as well. I'm not 100% sure this is what is is though.
