    wtf?

    incessant, loud, can't be permanently muted? I understand the need for ads, but come on, i literally can't come to this site now.

    The fact they hide it at the bottom too so every time it comes on you're like "THE F*** IS THIS S***T?" really gets me too. Cruel and unusual...

    What do you suggest for an adblocker?

    This obnoxious ad accomplishes 2 things:

    1. It irritates the living hell out of me and takes away from my enjoyment of SHH.
    2. It makes me never want to buy an Adidas product ever again.

    Mission accomplished?

    To those saying "oh just download this and set this setting"...you can lump me in with a group that feels we shouldn't have to. I personally haven't dealt with this here before and I've been coming here for years. Should we really except this as a new norm? Seriously?

    "Oh...i want to watch a video or trailer here! hu-yuck! better make sure i'm on this browser with this app on...otherwise i'll have to find this stupid ad and pause it first and continue to do so on ever page i visit here. herp derpidy derp!"

    No dice!

    SHH admins, you should kick this ad to the curb if you can!

    Spider-X I'm sorry but that sounds pretty winy. If you know of an easy solution that multiple thread members have given you, there is no need to go on this rant.

    Just install the AdBlock plugin and be on your way. It doesn't just help with this site but many others I'm sure you visit on the day to day.

    The mentality "so what if there's a solution, WHY should I have to do this in the first place!?" is a bit self righteous and unnecessary.

    Apology excepted :oldrazz: Look, my "rant" isn't meant to simply be self serving, so I've updated it. But I still stand by it. And, to keep things in context here, on the grand scale of things this isn't a giant deal. But I come here everyday, much like many others, and it's clearly annoying, unnecessary, and, actually, in its own context, rude.

    Thanks for the advise with the app though. Good to know it's out there, and I may end up downloading it, but I shouldn't have to. And no, the sites i usually visit don't have ads like this...that's why i feel the need to speak up because i enjoy this site more than most.

    It is really obnoxious, man...I did finally just cave and install AdBlock for Firefox though :cmad:

    Here's something interesting I just found about AdBlock:

    Source = http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/900054-Is-using-Adblock-plus-a-bad-thing

    So technically we are hurting the Hype by using Adblock, which sucks.

    So, Hype, if you generate revenue with these ads and Adblock actually hurts your bottom line...might I again suggest you remove the Adidas ad (and avoid allowing ads like that in the future) and, I can't speak for anyone else, but I'll turn off my ad blocker for ya.

    I was going to say, "In the time it took you to type the rant, you could have installed AdBlock and been done it it."
