Hi guys – I saw some of the reader complaints re: audio ads late yesterday; my apologies to everyone for the audio interruption. The people who manage the ads on this site are all under strict instructions to never let audio ads in (and, my goodness, certainly not ads for things like KY jelly, whether audio or not). Sometimes ads slip past our filters (which makes me like the advertising companies even less, but that’s me). In order to stop these ads I need two pieces of information:
a) Which ad spot you saw/heard the audio ad or offensive ad (because I work with different companies to manage different ads) — if you can say “the one at the top of the sidebar” or “the one at the bottom of the sidebar,” that’s very helpful.
b) If possible (pretty please), if you could click the link on the ad and send me the full URL to forward to the ad company — sometimes there is helpful information in the URL like campaign, ad network, etc.
I’ve been refreshing the page all morning and haven’t seen any offensive ads myself, and of course only heard one of those delayed audio ads just as I was opening a new site, so I couldn’t grab the info myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you guys for your patience with this (and all our tech troubles this week — we’re trying to sort them out).
Happy weekend, everyone!
Update: I just heard a delayed audio ad for Verizon. Very annoying — grabbed the URL myself.
