Time to voice our opinion in a poll folks. These noise making ads will stop me from visiting this site. They are annoying as heII and need to go!

I hadn't even though about it until I forgot my speakers were turned up this morning and "Help Me!" screamed out across cubicle land. D'oh. But, I really don't have an opinion one way or another. Especially since I'm not paying to help support this site.

EDIT: HOLY CRAP. . .WHAT'S WITH THE MACHINE GUN NOISE COMING FROM THE MATCH.COM AD. AND WHY WON'T IT STOP. . .MAKE IT STOP! AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! MY EARS!

Does you computer have a volume control? Turn the sound OFF and the problem is solved.

I don't mind regular adds, as they do support the site...

But when they start screaming at me and machine guns start shooting and don't stop...that's about where I draw the line.

There should be another option.

What ads? Don't see or hear them cuzz I use Firefox. Hence, they aren't annoying.

Nah, I think I'd rather send the message that noise making ads suk, than be forced to monitor the volume control of my PC.

Firefox seems to get all messed up every so often for me. Maybe something the IT police are doing here on our network though. :rolleyes:

I'll check into this. We are NOT supposed to have noise making ads, but occationally one slips through.

Thx.

Noisey banner is gone (as our the True banners).

Too much negative feedback, not much $
