I received 2 complaints about an ad which is playing loud music.

The first only told me there was a frog in it. I assumed this was for Bullfrog Sun Block. I looked at all their ads and they seemed fine.

The second told me that it said "Kiss the frog, get a free ipod" which I think is from Nutech. They have a bunch of ads for an ipod, all of which I cannot see at one time. I have deactivated them as an advertiser. Hopefully I deleted the right ads. If you still get this ad, please let me know exactly what it says.

Thank you to the 2 people who complained. Without them I would not have know that these ads were appearing with sound which is not something I would agree to.

Please do let me know when you see something that does not seem right. Sponsors do sometimes change ads on us and the new version may not always be appropriate or something I would allow.

General Comment:
Please when e-mailing me (or any website) give as much details as possible. In this case, what the ad said and the size would really help me track it down. If you get an error, state what the error message was, not just that there was one.

ciao,
Ray

Thank you, Ray. I almost jumped out of my skin the first time the frog ad played. It's not that I think the ad is horrible, but I could do without the sound.

(Actually, I didn't mind the frog as much as I minded that huge lady that lifted her shirt to expose her belly button. I couldn't click on anything until she was finished exposing herself. What was that ad?? Seems like it had to do with medication for IBS or something.)

WHERE???? What size?

Was it a 486x60 at the top?
Or a 120x600 on the side?

What did it say?

Ray,

I have not seen the ad since the other day. It was an ad on the top right hand corner of the screen and not along the left hand side.

Thanks for removing it!

I have not seen it recently, either. When I did see it, it was usually on the main page of the forum listings, in the top right corner. It was one of those interactive ads where you had to place a kiss on the frog, and it would take you to one of the, uh, "popular" complete 2392938 offers to get an i-pod page.

I'm so glad I've never heard this, especially since I usually sleep next to my laptop, with one browser tab on Volition.com . I haven't had any dreams about frogs lately.

No music, but I have to say this is the most eye catching AD. How many of you had to do a double take when you first viewed it?
First time I saw it, I thought "what'd that just say?!"
Then realized there's a "t" there.

Teleflora has accomplished part of their goal of getting your attention. The other part would be to order of course. (that's actually very pretty)

That one is pretty good. I mainly tune out all the banners, etc. and rarely notice them.

I completely tune them out. As far as I'm concerned they aren't even there.

I don't hear any sounds from any ads on Volition.

I was just reading the topic about Windows Vista and the last post is by someone with a Dell PC and many problems. The ad on the right side was for a Dell laptop. No correlation in why it showed up there, they are running a lot of ads on this site (selling pretty color laptops to our mostly female audience), which is what made it funny seeing it there.

I like the screensaver AD with the elephants walking through the jungle across the top. No advertising or words unless you put your cursor on it.

Am I the only one who thinks the SunMaid raisin ad is creepy? Good recipes, but the lady scares me.

I can't wait until the ad with the pizza caught in the braces has run its course. I am guessing it is for invisiline, but I try hard not to look at it, so am not sure. That particular ad is doing nothing to make me want to purchase the product.

I don't recall seeing the raisin ad.

I had to go and look at it as I never see it. Those are for invisaline and are targeted at teens. There is another ad from them that is for women. I didn't think they were that bad, but I'll turn them off if people are grossed out by them.

thanks,
Ray
