I know there is one other thread about ads on here in general but I thought this important enough to get it's own in light of everything that's going
on in the world lately. I will link to this in the other thread as well. Mods if you feel you'd like to move this elsewhere go for it.
I have to say, I am very disappointed in ATS for allowing such an invasive, massive and irritating ad on this website. It has been coming up on just
about every ATS page I open and every link to another post that I follow. I couldn't even find the tiny close button for quite a while so I waited
every time. Sure it doesn't stay up that long, but for every page, that's precious scarce free time that adds up pretty quick.
I've been trying to check in to this site everyday to look for updates on the nuclear meltdown and other happenings in Japan. Canada is in the Jet
stream coming from Japan and needless to say I am a little concerned and trying to stay on top of things, and it makes it pretty hard to with that
giant hideous ad raping my screen over and over again.
I find it disappointing as it is that there are so many ads on this site, but I understand it helps fund it, so I can generally deal with it but this
is taking it way too far. It's a movie for christ's sake, we are in the middle of a global nuclear crisis and this website which claims to deny
ignorance is shoving a movie ad in my face. I am rather disgusted. I'm pretty new to posting on here but I expected more from ATS. I really hope this
shameful display of advertising gets removed as soon as possible.
