I’ve heard isolated reports of auto-start videos on the site. I hate them every bit as much as you do, but I haven’t seen one and I can’t track down its source (we use multiple ad networks) without more information. If you see one, please get a screenshot of the ad for me. That might help me track it down and root it out. Thanks.
