Video Ad Causing Problem

No matter what page I am on this morning there is a video ad that keeps popping up and forcing the screen up or down to the video. Is there anything that can be done to keep it form appearing?

Hi Mickey, can you post a screenshot of the offending ad?

Is there a screenshot option that doesn't require me already having some kind of existing picture sharing account?

Yeah, if you click on "Go Advanced" in the reply box, you can attach photos directly.

Cool. I had no idea.

But for now the ad is gone. If it shows up I'll try and grab a pic. For the record, when I was able to briefly see it, it showed a group of pallbearers carrying a casket. But like so many modern ads, it was all but impossible to see what the ad was actually for.

imgur.com also lets you upload photos easily and anonymously without having an account.

Thanks.

It's back, so let's see if this works:

The ad is forcing my screen from being able to view the reply box up or down to the ad itself while it's running.

That ad is annoying as hell. It autoplays with video and sound, and there's no way to mute it.

Finally somebody else that has experienced it. Did it force your screen to the video location (bottom) as well?

I always have my computer set to mute given all the autoplay ads that are out there these days. So I never noticed the sound that goes with the ad.
