The only issue I see with RealGM lately is that Survey thing that pops up out of no-where. But, that happens about one in 10-20 page views, no biggie. But, the other day it popped up over the login page so I couldn't log in. That was annoying, but it is all good. RealGM still has to get paid.



Its Real GM's policy to their advertisers, I am just helping them enforce it. I need to have sound on the PC as I use Skype etc with clients. Sound advertisements lead to the immediate closing of the tab which is not what Real GM wants for its web traffic, and is probably the motivation for excluding the sound ads.



Thanks CR Reina!


It would sure be nice to create a secure web browser where you can control sound coming from just that browser or browser window. I bet that could make some nice money as I could sell that stuff.

Just an FYI, that small video started playing on its own. After I had posted while only clicking the post link, I went back to doing work being I am at work. Well, a few seconds go by then I hear sound of people talking. I tab back to Mozilla to see the "Progress Energy" commercial running. There was no option to pause or stop, but only an option to stop sound. No biggie, it doesn't happen that often.

Thanks for the feedback. This ad is appearing on our site by mistake. We've told all of our advertisers that no ads are to run with automatic sound. I'll be on the lookout for it, so I can identify where it is coming from and have it removed.

Yesterday while at work, the Toyota commercial started on its own a few seconds after or while loading a page. I hadn't clicked on anything else. To make matters worse being my speakers were set on loud, hahaha, there was no option to Stop, Pause or even cut off the sound. And, it stated that commercial would end in something like 24 seconds. I had to hit <F5> to make it stop.

Orlando. Lol. I am looking at cars on Craigslist, but haven't visited any dealer sites. Interesting. I look up reviews for cars on Google. Hmmm. Behavioral Advertising. I have been discussing this prospect with Google myself. Nice. Maybe, I will check out a Toyota, lol or an Acura TL.

Milo's Kitchen commercial just popped up with sound just now when going into a Current Affairs thread. I hadn't clicked on anything. Being I am at work, I cannot have these audio commercials popping up like this.

Was the ad from the edge of the site or from a marked word within the post?

The one right above "Login" or "Logout". The one that always has a commercial running. Of course, it is normally silent.

It happened again today. I don't click on anything on the page.

So, I used the Windows 7 "Clipping Tool" to show you the commercial. It doesn't happen every day as you can tell, but it happens every few days where a commercial is popping through with actual sound.

And, this has nothing to do with mouse overs or clicking being I usually click on a link to visit a thread and then go back to work while it loads. Usually, when I hear the sound of the commercial it comes as a surprise being I am at work and usually on a spreadsheet working when I hear it.

I just came across the ad myself and identified the source, so it won't appear again. Thanks for your help.

A McD's ad on the righthand banner fails to render fully on my screen and gives off a multicolor strobe effect.

I saw the same effect with the McDonald's ad last week. I haven't seen the issue happen again though. Have any of you?

Oh yeh, I almost forgot. I had sound yesterday on the forums from a Target advertisement. Looked like a commercial with a lady speaking as if she was a news reporter. I took a screenshot crop (windows 7 cutting tool) while at work. Just thought I would mention it in case you are interested. Let me know if you want me to post the pic. -BMP
