Are the ads with sound here to stay?
I just had one play twice in a row, in what sounded like French, between two posts in the forums.
It's annoying enough to have ads between the posts, but when they play out loud, it's a whole 'nother issue.
I surf this site through my home theater system, usually late at night, and having surprise ads sing out loud is not going to work for me.

To ad insult to injury... it just played again and I noticed it's a wine ad.
I don't drink. LOL

I have no control over the content of the advertising, it uses your browsing history and other factors to figure out what it wants to show you. As to it automatically playing sound, I don't think it's supposed to do that. I think there's an option to disable it but I can't tell at the moment as I'm using my phone
The ads are here to stay However, otherwise I'll have to shut the site down

Thanks Astro.
I understand that you need the ads, I just didn't get why all of a sudden I had French music blasting out of my sound system, especially while I was reading about Matman's heart condition.

The fact that it was a wine ad REALLY surprised me as all my ads are usually car and hobby related, because as you said, they use my browsing history and such. I'm pretty sure I've never even typed the word wine into my computer until today. LOL

I'm still not sure why you are getting sound, none of the ads I see have ever had sound unless I click on them

Yeah, I don't know either.
I've never had the problem before, but it happened three times yesterday, and trust me... I didn't click on any.

Okay... I just opened another browser tab and went over to Matman's "ke my tip" post in General Discussion, because that's where it happened.
Sure enough, after a few ads cycled (one was a Home Depot ad that had sound but was muted, as it should be), here comes the Ruffino ad in all of its loud, annoying glory.
Sorry, it's in Italian, not French like I'd said before. LOL
When I hover over the ad while it's playing, it shows an icon that implies that it's muted, but it clearly is not.

Maybe this is just a fluke and somehow this ad is breaking the rules, but since this had never happened in the past, I naturally assumed that there had been changes made to the site.
I apologize if I came off harshly at first, but I was a little upset that this site was changing for the worst.
Now that I know that it's not intentional, I can sleep at night again. LOL

It sure is odd.

Firefox here. I don't recall ads with sound ever playing here. Certainly not recently.

I'm on Firefox too.

Thanks Frscke1 for the input... It lets me know that it's not just me.

Just as an update...
Those ads were only like that for a few days or so...
I haven't had any more issues, and the ads actually do reflect my browsing history now... Some weird glitch I suppose.
