    And obviously I came to this sub-forum to see if anyone else had the same thought. Not a fan of auto-play videos.

    +1.

    Ads I can understand, the site needs to generate enough revenue to be self-sufficient.
    But auto-start videos with audio are not cool. Many of us want to check the site out at work during lunch or conference calls.

    AdBlock addon has been working good for me. But I agree. They completely suck. I'd rather see a contributing membership option that people can pay for some extra privileges on the site. That might offset some of the costs. But it's pretty clear that this is no longer ads meant to cover costs of the site but rather lets screw people for profit type deal.

    Yea how dare the people that own this site put those auto start ads on here. Don't they know that server space, and personell to run said servers and sites, are absolutely free?!

    How dare they try to make money to feed themselves, their families, their hobby, and run the site?

    What jerks. Give us free crap or we'll rebel

    There's other options other than ones that slow computers and are just plain annoying. Doesn't matter to me really, I made them go away so their money making ads are wasted on me cause I don't see them anymore.

    I tell ya. Someone just sent me "go bite your own weiner," in a grandstand of maturity.

    Ya'll, here and in the slow site performance thread, sound like hobos griping about the quality of free soup.

    If you're not paying for it shutup, if you don't like it circumvent it or don't use it. Or maybe just improve your machine....

    I do not use ad blockers and have never seen them.

    Must be related to your browsing history.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
