I know in the past ATS has made an effort to block or eliminate ads that are disruptive, so I wouldn't jump the gun until they put their thoughts into
They aren't trying to kill your experience here, it's unscrupulous marketers that do more harm then good (without realizing it because they have _____
for brains) so we shouldn't make rash decisions over it. ATS needs advertising money to maintain itself and deliver the experience it does for the
user. In most cases, I try to support the advertising when it makes sense. Because of data mining, there has been plenty of cases where I was close to
making a purchase, and I've clicked links on the banner because I was researching those products at the time anyhow.
Kind of reminds me of XBox, thinking they can dictate how people use their games and systems. They learned fast it wasn't going to fly. In Milk's
case, it's kind of hard for me to boycott them, but.... Any other product I would make a steadfast determination to cut down or stop using completely.
In the case of milk, tough, but maybe I'll switch to soy until they figure out advertising that resembles a virus is not the way to
