Get rid of that f'ing thing. Seriously.

Seconded. Not as startling as Tina, but just as annoying.

Haha, I came here to say the same thing.

I actually don't know if AI has any control over what ads they get.

I'd also like for them to get rid of that Crucial ad with the creepy "person" thinking. Is that a man or a woman? I can't tell. Honestly, drag queens are awesome, just that person in particular quite bothers me.

visually and audioly annoying adds are visually and audiolying nadouying turn the damn things off! what totally bad manners. i am going to tell your mamma on you, darn you

turn that annoying stuff off!, PLEASE
***

It is also very insulting to the majority of intelligent people who come here. If they would put a button on the add so that I could turn off the noise, it would be cool. Call the button "Stop The Buzzing", that would work.

This is easily the most annoying web ad I have ever seen (edit: I mean heard ). My only options were to turn off Safari plug-ins or not view the forum.

The ad made me finally download and install PithHelmet. I don't know why I waited so long.

Make it stop. Then find out what company made that damn thing, and make them listen to it for days on end. Bastards.
post #15 of 29
Yes. Please.
post #16 of 29
Not only is it an annoying ad, but why is it on every page and most the time at the top and bottom which doubles up the volume of the sound too. Then I usually open new tabs when browsing, which increases the volume further. This is insane.
post #17 of 29
Please kill the ad, it is drivig me insane (I know, it is a very short drive for me, but still...).

ok that's out of my system.

Now, at least, could someone on AI please give us some feedback about the annoying ad? Why you can't get rid of it, or whatever. Just something to let us know that YOU know it's driving us all mad.

I have emailed Kasper about this thread.

If someone can please post the URL for the ad, it would be appreciated.

you're not seeing it? It's on practically every single forum page.
post #23 of 29
Nope.

The ads are served depending on geographic location.

Perhaps ask your local council to spray.

Guys,

I'm trying my best to track this down and have left several voicemails with out ad partners. I've never seen the ad, so I can't tell where it is coming from. Please, the next person who sees it, don't click through the ad, but instead do a mouse over and see if you can tell who is serving the ad (advertising.com, valueclick.com, tribalfusion.com, euroclick.com, etc).

I apologize for this. There should be no audio ads, period! Unfortunately, sometimes our partners do shady things and slip these in once in a while.

Best,

K

It's a Flash animation. Mouse-over doesn't seem to work.

Thank you.

There is a beautiful AMD add on the board. It is very nice. I like it. It does not give me herpes, nor does is screw with my speakers. It does not shake and jive at 18 cycles per second. I am a calm person. I think I will visit some forums and dialoge with people.

I assume the sun will show up in the east tomorrow morning. Life is good. AI is good. All is good. [I could say AI is god but that would be going too far]
