So, I went to Youtube to watch some [email protected] videos because I like [email protected] and I hear something odd in the background after about a minute. Turns out Google in their infinite wisdom has decided to add voiced over advertising to the pages below and to the right of comments that we never read anyway. They will play and interrupt what you're watching, right in the middle of it. If you turn off the sound it'll just load up a new one and interrupt you again.

So, I closed Youtube, opened up Nico Nico Douga and went back to watching [email protected] This is pretty stupid, even for Google.

What about you guys? What do you think of the change?

All I can say is.
Stop complaining, this is a forum not a whining center.

Who says we can't complain? When did you start to dictate what a forum can be? Are you the boss of this place? We can do whatever we want as long as we are not breaking the rules.

So I can make rant threads complaining?
Let me whine about every website having ads also, and everything I hate about the internet.

So long as you aren't breaking rules, you can do that.

I agree with this, I never saw anything besides the ads on the videos, and they never bothered me either.
Also, I don't ahve adblocker and I don't complain one bit about it.

Change your browser to Firefox (I think Chrome has it too), install Adblock Plus, problem solved. :3
