Annoying Ads?

by Simon Styler » Tue Mar 08, 2011 11:06 pm

Normally I don't mind little advertisements and stuff, even when it becomes graphical and such when slowing down a page (I don't get that on SP thank goodness) I can still deal with it. But today when viewing a forum thread a movie advertisement auto played which had sound as well. This woke up my brother who was sleeping, and this happened again later on which I finally decided to mute my sound. Now I know advertisement are important to sp for making money and such, but ones like these are kinda annoying. Am I the only one who got it? And it's not a big deal, just kinda annoying. :wink:

I got it a few times and have been hopeing it is a very rare thing because if thats the direction things are going, I'm sure we will not be the only very pissed off people. It is very invasive.

With Firefox and the default ad-blocker, I see no ads.

Sometimes I think redundant threads are slowing SP down.
