    Those advertisements with the sounds should be illegal. What an invasion of my personal space. I can see how a silent add can be tolerated, even enjoyed, but when they start saying things like, "HELLLLOOOOOO!" or, "WHAAAT!?" overtop of the music I am listening to it is extremely annoying.

    My idea?

    Have a mute function for ads... or get rid of the sound all together.

    Maybe someone knows of a way I can do it through my browser?

    I wondered what the heck he was on about until I read your excellent retort 🙂
    As Orangutan states these ads are a non-sub problem which is solved by subscribing. No adverts for subscribers.

    Be forewarned they (add-ons) are against the TOS. Playing here for for obligates you to have advertisments. When you block them you are stealing from Russ. Brought to you by the Food for Thought Council.

    They're probably against the TOS of every other site with ads, too.
