a audio ads Were on it.

Dear Chivers,

We’d like to personally apologize for the deluge of auto-play audio ads that have recently graced theCHIVE. For the record, we do not, and will never allow auto-play audio ads on theCHIVE. Trust us, we hate them more than you do. We work with only the most reputable ad networks to serve our ads and occasionally some sneaky bastard will slip benign, quiet ads through their systems through a real-time-bidding platform and dynamically switch to an auto-play ad from their end. It’s a game of cat and mouse, and although we can supposedly put a man on the moon, we cannot always pinpoint and cut them off before they appear.

We have all our ad networks on it and it should be fixed soon. The good news is that these ads are not harmful to your computer, they are simply annoying. First world problems.

Here’s what you can do to help:
-stop wasting your time sending hate mail, WE KNOW.
-Boycott Lysol, Mucinex, Pinesol, Woolite, Ativia and Tivo -and for shits, Wal Mart

Keep Calm and Chive On
-John and Leo

    Thanks for taking care of them so quickly!

    …and you responded to me like I was the slow kid when I told you about this months ago. Thank you, FINALLY!

    How about fixing the weird auto re-direct that keeps going to a chive page not found? That is much more annoying than any audio ad. It used to happen after I would click on the main page, but now even the main page does it… (No, I don't have any viruses. This is the only site doing this). Firefox user here. Anyone else having this problem?

    Don't want ad's? EASY! install Adblock Plus in Firefox or Chrome and then they never appear. Unless you're using IE… then you're just retarded

  • CDN

    How about boycott theChive since they didn't do anything about it until angry Chivers complained about it vehemently.

  • apg

    Let the Boycott Begin!

    And thanks for letting us know you're working on it.

    Also, can we get some more motivation posts? That would be awesome.

  • Nursevee

    I’m boycotting pants!

    I Chve the shit out of it every day, today, however, during a high level meeting when I was bored as fuck because some fucktarded blowhole began speaking to hear himself talk, the site randomly began announcing annoying shit during said raging asshat's presenation. I got fucking PISSED because the Chive doesn't fuck around, and it was clearly a quality control issue(what the fuck Patty?). I must say, it was your explanation that ad companies are in fact complete douchebags that kept me from eating kittens and murdering unicorns. Thank you for saving the unicorns, they're fucking pure magic, and just plain good luck for your balls.

    i have ad blocker so i dont know what this post is about 8)

    Oooh – bash on Walmart – way to be original. Why not bash Target? or Best Buy? Douches. While you're at it – why not ban the auto load Opinion Mart, since they seem to want to redirect me from your web site every 5 minutes.

    Thankyou…. they were playing in layers and I was getting the ads for Mucinex and activia at the same time….though yogurt is kind of snotlike…..maybe it was intentional….. lol

  • John

    Or use Firefox with Adblock addon and you will never see ads anymore

    Thanks for addressing this, guys! Bravo on your attentiveness and apologies for my previous ill-tempered comments inre: to the unsolicited audio intrusions. The simple fact that you are working to resolve this merits kudos galore, but I was also having some extreme withdrawals in my (weak) attempt to boycott probably the best site in the world…so this helps mucho…

    In the meantime, I'll just Chive On, Audio Off….until it's fixed.

  • grog

    thanks for listening to the 99%
