    Hi Arn,

    The latest bunch of ads are extremely annoying...

    1. Some download a banner image.
    2. Some start with a really loud music.

    Could this be looked into... really makes browsing Macrumors too "busy"...

    Can you post the URL's of the offending ads? The admin staff need this to remove them.

    I don't know about you but I like my free membership here at MacRumors (so the ads can stay). Second, are you sure you don't have any "ware" on your computer because I've never seen a video ad or even one with audio on this site, ever.

    It does happen so thanks for reporting it. As stridemat said, the admins need the URL so they can block the ad. Screenshots help as well.

    Will provide the ad link next time it happens :)

    Been a daily browsing Macrumors for many years already and never had any issues with ads, just until these as of late.

    I agree no annoying ads or any kind of sounds.
