ads with sound

are we really sinking this low now? just got a flash eharmony ad at the bottom of the page that automatically played with sound on

i can deal with the sidebar ads but this is getting to be a bit much

so it turns out i might have moused over it myself now that i'm getting more

the touch pad on laptop lets me scroll all the way to the bottom by whipping my finger down and it might have landed on the ad

guess that's the point though, make you inadvertently play it so they can annoy you

making it play from just mousing over is still pretty annoying

Just so you know we don't allow or want ads that pop up or have sound.

We don't go through and allow or disallow each ad, that's not how these networks work. If you find an ad that's shady, copy the url to the ad (to the banner itself, not the target of the ad) and let us know and we'll gladly look into it.
