Ads with Automatic Sound

 

Dear Izismilers,

 

Over the past few weeks, we got more complaints that advertisement on izismile.com appeared with a sound which is very annoying to watch the content on the site. It is even more annoying for those who are at work. This situation is very uncomfortable for us as well. We are against such advertising, and always fight with those advertisers who are unfairly trying to show these ad banners on izismile.

 

I want to emphasize once again; our internal policy include a total ban on display of any advertisement (audio and video) with automatic sound. You can play a video ad on the site to watch it but only you should be able to turn it on. In all advertising programs where izismile participates, we activated filters to prohibit display of advertising with automatic sound on our site.

 

Yesterday the first steps have been taken to eradicate such ads. Several advertisers were banned. We hope that you won’t see or hear advertising with automatic sound anymore. However, if you come across such a banner, then in order to help us remove it from the site, you'll need to do the following:

1. Make a screenshot of the banner with the sound.

2. Click on the banner and copy the link to the site where the banner leads.

3. Email me the link and the screenshot to admin@izismile.com as soon as possible.

Only together can we overcome this stuff on Izi. Thank you.

 

PS. We’d like to ask all of you to take part in the poll inside this post and specify in the comments which country you are in (this is important because advertising with automatic sound is targeted, i.e. they will only show it in certain countries).

 

Have you ever experienced advertising with sound on izismile.com?

Yes, but only once
Yes, two or more times
I have it every day, and very angry because of this
No, I've never heard of it

US, California. Good work, you have the right to show ads, keeps things flowing with the green grease but sometimes things go too far. I'm glad this site notices and acts quickly when it does!

Ghostery finds 9 trackers on this page and blocks them.
AdBlock Plus stops 7 sources of adverts.
RequestPolicy blocks outgoing links to a further 2 domains that are not serving content.
Noscript stops a lot of quite large javascripts from running.

I would feel unsafe browsing this site without protections in place.

Australia, and thank you Izismile, for recognizing the problem.
I get so pissed off when trying to watch the videos, and constantly have to go and either turn off the sound on the ad, THEN after that one finishes, another annoying baby talk one starts up that you can't block the sound on... you have to pause it. EVERY TIME!
Hopefully now this will stop.
Cheers.

New Hampshire, USA. I'm getting 2 and 3 ads opening at once and playing audio over each other...sometimes the same ad in 2 windows, but out of synch. By the time I scroll up to them to attempt to mute them, pause them, or grab a screen save, they've disappeared! It's maddening, Izi! I have no choice but to to turn off my speakers before I visit your site!
