Default Ads with sound are a distraction and off-putting

Hi there -

Just wanted to give my feedback - on the forums there have been some ads showing up that automatically play an advertisement with sound. At first you can't see them - you have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to them. I just recently had one for Mucinex while I was on the 7-day motivational thread in the women's section.

Personally, I find auto-play ads, especially those with sound, to be extremely annoying. They make me want to click away from the page I am on; I do believe that's probably the antithesis of what you want on this site!

If at all possible, I'd vote for removing them from the side. They add nothing and detract much from the experience of an otherwise wonderful tool.
