We’re on it.

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

        i shat an ad

    • Craigery

      You mean "allowed", or were you making a pun?

  • SoL

    Ah, Adblock, where would I be without you?

    • The JK

      Amen to that. Seriously, if anyone is not using it, they should be.

    • Sorin

      When I enabled Ad Block to take care of said nasty audio assaults, it blocked almost every page of content too… sadface.

  • zachinacubicle

    Can you get some SC voice overs for these… That would make them much better.

  • sheoncebelieved

    if they were really smart their audio ads would be females having orgasms….then we'd have no complaints

    • Guesty

      SHUT THE FUCK UP

    • Their is you're mom

      That would be the first and last time you hear a female orgasm.

  • Sweet

    Thank you dear brethern!

        • Runelord420

          As do I.

    • thepoopsmith

      i think it is odd that they are calling for a boycott of those who are causing 'thechive' to make money #logic?

  • CBRian1K

    meh, haven't noticed them. Ad Block.

    • http://thechive.com/ GernBlansten

      +1 on AdBlock.

  • AssClown

    Better Pop Up Blocker brah…

  • Lawndart

    …look for other people to finish your sentences? Maybe also trying for a over exaggerated jumping high five or something?

  • Brad

    I have never seen these ads. I use Chrome (which isn't perfect anyway) with Flash and Ad-Blockers…

  • DrROBOTO

    I was a really good zombie last year for haloween…this year Ive got no ideas. Help me guys. And nobody say the crow. I did that the year before.

    • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

  • MammyNun3

    HA, one of the audio ads is playing right now.

  • JHarris

    Well, technically, you didn't put a man on the moon.

    • The_Dood

      That's why they said supposedly, asshat.

      • Nasa engineer

        For fucks sake, are you a fucking engineer.

  • wewantneweditors

    amazing, negative posts are removed, how amusing.. and Paula the chive employee forever still silencing the mases with her obliviouse misgivings..

    Paula = John in drag

            Damn, it IS.
            I really have to hand it to you. You always post these links and about half the time they take you to Norma Stitz but the rest of the time you get some awesome/sexy picture. And there's no trucking way to tell unless you click it… You are one hell of a troll sir-and/or-ma'am.

            • iwascalled ad shat

              its sir to you ad shat

  • commonsense

    or you can tell the chivers to get ad block

    • The_Dood

      Yeah I was seriously hoping that's what this post was going to be.

  • jasgat

    …. And for shits, Wal Mart..
    That is a great line

  • https://www.facebook.com/rivencleft Matt Murchison

    Ooh thank god!! I can't masterbate with a charmin ad in the background.

    • Their is you're mom

      I can't masturbate without a Charmin ad in the background.

    • jew

      no idea how this post got a thumbs down….

  • Guest

    Great! While you're at it, kill the Facebook banner.

  • jrey81

    What's the difference between a BlackBerry and a Microwave?

    A microwave can still Ping.

      The BlackBerry outage is RIM's 3 days of silence in respect for Steve Jobs.

      • ad shat
