I was reading a thread on Food Media and News a moment ago and suddenly a very obnoxious and loud commercial took over the screen. I had to close the program and restart to get away from the thing. If Chowhound is going to permit this type of thing then I am out of here and shame on them. We get enough ads on the right hand side of the page and yes, I know CH has to have the adverts to make money to keep the site going, I used to send J. Leff some money to keep it going. I do understand that, but the screaming car ad is just too much.
