    I will now stop using yahoo news page because i looking at the news page, and all of a sudden the audio from one of your ads blasts through my headphones, dangerously loud, and i couldn't quickly figure out how to silence the ad. And you do this on purpose, whihc makes it worse. I know you want people . to see the ads, but to force them away from their primary purpose of reading content to do so kind of defeats the purpose. I'll now never use your news site again because it's just too distracting. I dn't mind ads, but make them subtle, or give me a warning, or make it easier for me to dismiss them. And certainly stop automatically playing audio. That's the most intrusive. It goes against all best practices for user experience. Your site sucks. This is why no one uses Yahoo anymore.
