My company has a very strict policy about streaming audio and/or video, citing bandwidth as the concern, a concern I believe shared by some here. I’m not sure if this is “streaming,” but I am certain I would not be able to explain it as otherwise.

And it's definitely not 1 x per 24 hours.

I've gotten it 3 times in about the last 5 minutes. Once on the main page of this thread, once in the TV forum and once in Other.

I got it 2x in about 10 minutes on 2 different forums. I don't mind ads, just not ones with sounds. But, you gotta do what you gotta do to keep the site running.

FYI, it is running far far more than that. I've gotten it on 3 of the last five posts I looked at (including this one), with the sound all three times (even though I clicked it off.

more like 1 x per 24 seconds and for some it's like 1 x per 2.4 seconds.

I am getting this on almost every click.

Another vote for the ad sucks. I'm trying to listen to the Tony Kornheiser Show over the net, and that ad interferes with it - so far at least 5 times in the last couple hours.
