Sorry for the frustration--We're certainly not trying to deflect responsibility but the reality is we do not pick individual ads but instead come up with a set of rules for what is and isn't acceptable from advertisers. When advertisers break those rules and insert disruptive ads, we don't take it lightly and will sever our relationship with those advertisers when necessary. That said, ads are an important part of EP. They're what help us maintain EP as a free site.

Thanks for including a screenshot in your post. We're investigating and working to track the ad. An ad should not being playing video or audio on its own without you engaging with the ad, by moving your mouse over the ad and leaving it there for a short while, which will trigger the ad to begin playing.

Are you finding that this ad is playing without you triggering the ad?

YES...It plays without me triggering a thing!

Please be more aggressive with your advertisers.

Also note, one of the ads went off on it's own, during one ad, I was in the middle of typing this story, yup, just typing...INSIDE THE TYPING AREA window EP has us type our stories in....that ad you will find it the top ad in this story screenshot, that man in a suit and tie in that ad.

I have adblock in both my browsers.

That's nice I have it in 2 of mine!

I only have two browsers...how many do you have? I use Firefox, mostly, except when it is having technical problems; then I use explorer. I don't like IE as much as Firefox.

I hate firefox!
Malware infested security update fatigue of a browser, I have it...only for work related things that demand users use it or internet explorer!

I heard my first audio ad the other day just as I was composing an email. Scared the crap out of me. It's SO annoying!
