Advertisements with sound.

I recently signed in to check my email at work and an ad played for an auto sales lot with sound that was really loud.  Please rethink the use of ads with sound when signing in at the website.  If you use ads that play video, please have the sound muted as the default.  It is not good for a work environment when checking personal emails and a loud ad comes on.


Thinking about it, I pay for my access to the internet and my email service.Why am I exposed to advertising like some sites when the service is free? Do we, collective consumers, not pay enough to cover the cost of the internet and email service that you have to advertise on our paid service to make ends meet?

Auto ads have historically been loud on Tv. They now have followed that trend on the internet.
