Viewster is automatically playing sound ads. Not HP's fault. They're pulling the same stunt on Bing.
Update: I should have put "ad-related" in the title, since the full thread address doesn't show until clicked. Sorry about that. Next time I'll remember.
The hubber Thomas Swan started a thread about audio ads a couple of weeks ago. In case you didn't see it: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/121663
I'm getting them all the time, especially in the forums.
Ads that play audio when you hover over them or click are permitted, but not those that play audio without user interaction.
If you can provide details we can sometimes track down and stop these ads.
You can also block them individually in your AdSense setting if they are coming from that ad network.
The sticky FAQ entry for this forum has the sort of details that are helpful here.
