Yup ... sneaky bastards those ad people. ;)

That's a lot nicer than how I'd phrase it.

Well, that's the public moderator version.  I won't repeat type what I scream at my computer when one of those goes off again, and again, and again ...

I'm guessing these are Flash ads, since I never hear them in iOS.

I bring it up because I think there are 3rd party apps to disable sound in Flash, at least in Windows, without being a full-up adblocker. Could be a win-win.
Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say 'No, you move'.

Although sound isn't a problem, I'm getting recurring pop-ups on my iPhone to go play the Kim Kardashian game (at yahoo).

I see there's a banner for it at the bottom of the page. On the mobile site, of course.

PS, I just got an AM/PM ad with unsolicited sound on my ISP's home page, so it's definitely not TD's fault; nevertheless the ad agency's feet need to be held to the fire.

And this thing keeps bouncing me out to the App Store. Play Free. Just loading the page triggers it.

So the page is loading and then redirects you to the App Store? Is anyone else seeing this?

That is correct. It takes me out of Safari and opens the App Store pointing to their software.

Yup. I had that happen to me this morning on my iPad. Page loads, then - boom - forced redirect to the app store page for the advertisement. I DESPISE those ads. There's a special place in you know where for whoever decided these were a brilliant idea.
