I was reading through someone’s blog today and got interrupted by an extremely annoying advertisement (on the right hand side). It was a video (with audio) advertisement. There was no way to shut it off, which forced me to leave the page and stop reading the blog….

Could I have turned off my volume? Of course, but I shouldn’t have to, plus I could still see the video playing which still prohibited me from concentrating on what I was reading…

Could I download an Ad-remover plug-in? Of course, but don’t really like downloading extra things like that to my computer.

My point… Ads like this make me use Lumberjocks less. A lot less actually.

Just some food for thought.

This was brought up last week in a different thread. Forum admin says their team is looking into blocking ads with audio.

We are still waiting on a response from Google. I am so very sorry about the delay.

It looks like the techs are getting to the bottom of this.

Hopefully the issue will completely end today. (crossing my fingers)
