    I just noticed today that at least one of the ads displayed on the top and/or bottom of each page starting playing audio. This is VERY annoying when I'm trying concentrate on reading the contents of the page or watching a video in another linked page. Please limit ads to display only!

    Thanks for letting us know.

    From our understanding, we do not allow any audio ads. However, we will look into how/why this may have come up for you. I encourage anyone else to sees an audio ad to please take a screenshot and share it with us.

    Yep I got ads with audio as well. They were also animated and caused performance issues, like dropped letters while typing forum posts.

    The audio ads were the last straw so I enabled an ad blocker for the site, so I don't see, or hear, them anymore... (If nobody else posts screenshots maybe I will re-enable ads to try to get one for you.)
