Sponsored Video Playing Automatically Answered

Why do the 'sponsored videos' (READ: advertisements) at the top of most pages start playing automatically? I can only hope this is a mistake, because it is wrong on many levels.
1. Loud
2. Obnoxious
3. Unwanted
4. Makes me want to avoid Instructables (NOOOOO!)

Sorry if those are redundant, but on top of the recent site layout fiasco, Instructables seems to have become a huge, messy commercial. I could live with that if only those videos didn't play automatically.

I agree. This change is just annoying. Please, please PLEASE make the auto-playing videos go away.

So is this seriously not a bug? It's on purpose? Wow. I'm a blue collar worker and however small an amount it may seem, it's not in my budget. For all of us who came to Instructables because it was an open, and FREE community for makers, this is a very rude intrusion.
