    Ok, all of a sudden I keep getting talking banners...alternating between some stupid "free ipod" and talking smilies.

    It is INSANELY annoying and scares the living crap outta me when I am not expecting it...

    This is prob happening 70% of the time..and yes, I know, I turn my sound off, but I mean when I am trying to listen to music while browsing chaz, its irritating as hell...

    is there ANY way to stop this!?? Anyone else getting them a crapload??

    There have been other threads.. if you do a search, Angel Chicken said something about a download for firefox users and settings for IE users. I tried the firefox thing and it didn't work, so I just keep my volume down.

    I hate them too, when will companies realize that annoying people is not the way to get them to click on your banners.

    Good lord. I actually like my sound, so I'm probably going to just avoid chaz till that ad goes away.

    these talking banner never used to be this bad... now they go off all the time and I too find them extremely annoying. I also like to listen to music when I browse around on here. I wonder why they're all of a sudden so much worse than before.

    For whatever reason, blocking them in IE does not work for me :(

    I don't use firefox........so I get to have NO sound when using chaz :( *waaaaaaa waaaaa*

    (it is kinda funny though when I forget to turn off my sound at night and it scares the doody out of a sleeping Kevin :D)
