Just because a mod or some one high up doesn't see it, doesn't mean its not happening. Just as the world doesn't go away when I close my eyes.
Since typing this in another thread about the redirect, I got redirected. I suspect it IS an AD and ATS DOES allow them to trickle through to get us
used to that kind of AD because they pay alot more! If some one hacked ATS, they should just say so, but if its like I suspect and it is an AD, they
won't say anything. I too have done scans and nothing.
I have not gotten these redirects, however, I have gotten other stuff to the point I have alot of things disabled or set to notify. I just wish that
when I see threads like this, that people didn't jump the gun and claim "virus for other site", but instead, ask enough questions/get enough
answers to rule out what it is and what it is not.
In this case, its most likely coming from AD's hosted on ATS, to say otherwise would be just like those pre-typed "We are sorry for your bla bla
bla" letters that just work on sheeple. Like how the reactor problem was handled by Japan's govt.. If Japan's govt. had told the truth and worked
to solve the problem, sure there would be more fear for awhile and more people would have left, but they would have trusted the govt. alot more.
Same thing with web sites and the need to hide things behind the curtain. It wouldn't be that bad for some one who has the info (mod or owner) to pop
in and say "such and such site paid our AD server alot of money for placement and then our AD server paid us alot to host this AD, but we had no clue
it would be a redirect like this, we don't have people who look at the coding of AD's all day, but we know now and have disabled it". On the other
hand, if it was an outside attack on ATS, they could say so and how you can block it as well as mention that they are fixing it. If it isn't a
mistake or attack (see above) and it wasn't from another site, that only leaves a real good reason to NOT talk about it with ATS members.
I think a global Transparency Day would be great. It would be the one day that was not Halloween, the one day people could see the "man" behind the
mask. A day where we could see the real reasons we are left in the dark, heh, it might be like Halloween for those of us that are somehow "too old"
