I know the site has to generate revenue, but some of these audio ads will take forever to load, and often, when I am out of the room the volume will skyrocket.

Is there a way to have these ads load muted, then ask to have the volume turned on, like other sites?

I think there are some programs you can download that gets rid of Ads. Don’t know what they are called but maybe Rick Knows.

Not all of the ads play audio. Just some of them. And not immediately.
