Auto-play Sound Ads

Hey Blippers,

UPDATE 11:44 PST:
We’ve found the source of these ads and they should be stopping shortly. We apologize for the poor experience that some of you have had as a result and thank you for your help and understanding.

Wanted to drop a quick line about some ads that have recently shown up that have auto-playing sound. These ads are obviously a major intrusion to the Blip.fm experience and we in no way ever intend for ads such as these to be shown on Blip.fm. However, despite our best intentions and requests to our ad partners, sometimes they slip through. We’re working hard to track down and remove these ads and have already contacted our ad partners. You can help us by sending us screenshots of any such ads and your geographic location (some ads are geo-targeted)in an email to support@blip.fm. Hopefully by the time most of you read this, we’ll have already gotten these ads removed, but we wanted to make sure everyone was aware of our official stance on this.

Happy Blipping,
Yan & the Blip.fm crew

My right click doesn’t give me that option it’s a 4 minute ad to apply makeup!

Thanks! The ads suck, but it’s great how responsive you were. Blip is both my favorite social network and my favorite music site.

The ads don’t bother me as much as having to sift through every wanna-be-musician’s crappy homemade youtube video in order to find the real artist songs. Yeah, that’s great that it took you 6 months to figure out the guitar riff to a Rush song but NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR VIDEO!! Can this junk be filtered out?

@radiovox, I very much doubt they can be filtered - how would you even begin? I think Rush is a particular problem, as it seems they have someone actively taking down the proper recordings from YouTube

Carolina Panthers opt for Luke Kuechly, Single pound, Birkenstock boston CollegeOffensively, Camera Newton has made this specific group an engaged a person. He gives much to the desk. Defensively, the group is actually comparatively bad. These people locked up their prime Nufactured around Charles Jackson last year. This year, they will bring just about the most confident and also least-risky choose with Kuechly. He is a good gambler, does everything cheap caps effectively, and will turn into a good battler on the Panthers defense.
