Please remove the auto-start advertisements Answered

I have no issue with your site running advertisements, however ones that run un-solicited audio and video are beyond annoying. Especially when I'm watching a video on a second monitor and looking for project information on your site. They do nothing but get in the way and turn me off as a consumer.

Black and Decker make great products, but I have to question their common sense when they force a video for their products down my throat.

Thank You

I feel the same way. The Solar page is pretty much a Volt advert with a couple of links to instructables.

The Solar page is sponsored, as is the Dremel page.

But the video on the Dremel page is not autostart. That's the point -- the autostart video chews bandwidth whether the user wants to or not, and will also start spewing video whether the user wants it or not (and perhaps under inappropriate circumstances). The Chevy Volt video is bad Netiquette, as are the B&D videos.
