Default Ads At The Top Of The Page

These ads at the top of the forum page never bothered me but now they are videos that turn on and play. I shut them off and in 30 seconds they start again. Any way to lose these?

The internet used to be about acquiring information and facilitating communication. Now it's about business mining your wallet like a silver mine.

Ad Blocker is the only way. I hate to do it to sites like this one that are otherwise not bad with ads. But you gotta do what ya gotta do.

I'm OK with adverts in general as a way to fund internet sites but the auto-start videos and full-page cover the content ads, are where I draw the line.

I've stopped visiting several news sites because of the auto-start "content" videos.

I totally agree w/DanR - sites need to make money to provide the content they do without charging us like cable tv.
That said, in my mind, having a video shoved down your throat just because you visited a website is like getting an anal probe from the doorman just because you stopped in for a beer.

It never used to bother me until the ad at the top starts talking to me and I can't shut it up!

I don't get any ads with 'sound' and I'm on Chrome. Never have, so this is news to me.

I know I won't be going to any of the bars that shredd frequents though.
