remove audio from ads
Remove audio from ads or mute them by default. I am tired of being interrupted by ads whose audio fires up when I'm reading something or performing a transaction, potentially causing mistakes to be made. This type of distracting can be costly and is very offensive. This usually happens when the window is in the background. If all web designers did this, computers would be un-usable. Imagine half a dozen unwanted ads from different sites playing simultaneously. Fix your freaking site!

Yes, stop playing audio at random times. Your site just disrupted my work because I happened to have a web browser open on another page, on another PC, on my desk. STOP IT. FIX IT. DON'T DO THIS.
Stop auto-playing the videos, or at least mute them by default, when I click on an article that I would like to READ, not WATCH. I cannot have these videos blasting on my work computer when I am simply trying to read the article.
