I have long protested the use of advertising that takes over a screen where I'm about to
add a quote or otherwise contribute (AS A VOLUNTEER CONTRIBUTOR DOING IMDb A FAVOUR!). Today, an ad popped up with SOUND by default. (Sorry that I'm 'shouting' in this post - I'm very close to swearing off IMDb altogether. It isn't worth the aggravation.) You know very well that you can 'manage' on the revenue from sidebar and unintrusive top-bar ads, you greedy . . . Note to self: stop there, so your post doesn't get trashed automagically.

Hi Gerald,

I'm sorry to hear about the unexpected ad. Are you able to provide more clarification such as the direct URL, to where this ad popped up?

Thanks!
