Out of the Blue

Last night it became apparent that an advertisement was running here that shouldn't have been, as it was a video that popped up, which was already too much before you even get to the fact that it automatically played audio. The good news is that while this was a slip by the ad provider, they were on top of it once I brought it to their attention, and it was apparently removed a few minutes after they were informed. Apologies if you encountered this, there should be no pop ups here, nor do we allow ads that play uninitiated sounds.

Ads that play sounds are a deal breaker, I was pretty disappointed for a while but glad they're gone.
