To deal with the ads use an ad blocker its against terms and conditions but its the only way ATS is going to notice. If it hits the money...Not that I
am recommending using an add blocker. That would be against TC...
I thought it quite interesting, too, that no ATS moderator has not addressed this thread.
Thanks, OP, (S&F'ed) for this thread, Just noticed this problem getting worse myself, and was about ready to start a thread on the subject.
These audio ads are the height of obnoxiousness. If ATS wants its users and members to abide by T&C's, i.e. not use some sort of ad-blocking, then
it needs to at least be considerate of its usership and membership by not putting in these obnoxious, intrusive audio ads.
I like to listen to music or audio books while on my computer, so I find these audio ads to be extremely rude.
That all said, I noticed that it seems I get a lot more of these audio ads when I am not logged in to ATS, i.e. just using the site as a visitor.
Anyone else notice this?
As an aside, I also found the "marijuana!" comment amusing. It's ok on this website to advocate an illegal attack of another country, but god
forbid one advocate legalizing recreational drugs. What's even more ironic is how a number of the regulars on ATS live, and hence part of ATS, are
nicotine fiends and get very defensive if any godless, commie-pinko, fascist talk of tobacco prohibition comes up, because, like, tobacco is a legal
drug, so it would be wrong to illegalize it; never mind that it is a major health and safety problem.
