    Seriously, what's with the random audio I'm getting from this place?

    Auto playing, random stories about "soot" and whatnot. Comeon TGR, you're better than that.

    Took me a few min to find the offending adds. they are WAY DOWN on the bottom of the page.

    [B]HEY TGR![/B] I read your site, I cannot have random unsolicited audio come blaring out of my puter.

    You need to tear that down, You are not winning any fans with this invasive weak shit.

    I just heard a really awesome one for laundry detergent. They must be targeted ads, since lord knows none of you guys do your own laundry.

    I fucking hate these ads. Especially when you have 6 TGR tabs open and you have no fucking clue which one is playing the audio because the fucking video is at the bottom right corner.

    Seriously, there are better ways to pay for the site and keep you guys in business than these fucking video ads.

    Annoying ads are starting to make me thinkg of an ad=blocker. Unexpected noise is annoying and could be bad at work.

    just install ad block or ad block plus provided you're using chrome or ff. problem solved. not only does it take away the video ads it also takes away all the other banner ads that are flash heavy and slow down your browser.

    whatever ads show up in the bottom right corner. 60% of them are talky.

    PS - if you run adblock, TGR get no monies.

    i know, which is why i haven't run it til now. but between the flash ads chewing up all my RAM and the new audio ads scaring the hell out of me, i can't fucking stand it anymore. you can put ads on w/out being obnoxious about it.

    I was getting them too, however they seem to have recently stopped.
    Basically I had to close and reopen the window and reload the page I was viewing at the time that the ad started to spew sound without asking.

    And the fucker is back.
    Ikea ad this time.
    If you mouse over the window, a control bar appears (sort of like a youtube window),
    there is an option to mute the sound, which I did, we'll see if it sticks or not.

    In the mean time, it's intrusive and unwanted, not to mention sucking up bandwidth.
    Please make it stop.

    My apologies, guys. They should all be gone in the next 15 minutes or so, if not sooner. We were trying some new tags out and I had been assured that the audio ones had been pulled from rotation, which they clearly were not.

    Thanks, D(C). I'm 50% sure this one is blocked and am looking into the other 50% of it right now. It's easiest for me to diagnose these if I have a screenshot of the ad (like yours, above) and the URL any questionable ad links to.
