Has anyone else experienced this? You go to your ad and very loud music starts blaring that has nothing to do with your hub content. I have one hub with several videos on it but it was impossible to hear the videos above the blaring sound of an ad located at the bottom of the hub. (I believe it's for Hot Spots, or something close to that?) It's very distracting, in my opinion, and really devalues the content of the article. You can't see how to turn it off because it's at the bottom.
Has anyone else seen these? I am in Canada, so I don't know if this just a local thing or hubwide. I am all for revenue generation but to my mind, that's not attractive. Any opinions, thoughts?
I have experienced, usually in the bottom Google ad under the comments is where I find the offending critter! This is bad in the regard that if we have a video hub, the videos we upload for that hub are auto-play as you mention, and you then have a jumble of garbled sounds going off. I operate with sound off most of the time due to such things on my laptop, however, many folks do have sound on and I can see how this would TOTALLY detract from your video hub(s).
They shouldn't be there. If it's the bottom ad unit, it's Google AdSense. Next time you see an ad like this, please take a screenshot and send it to adops@ so we can investigate.
I've heard of this happening before. I stopped reporting auto run ads. Some auto run video and sound, and some are just video.

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

I can't link on that. Did they block hubpages and I missed the announcement or am I just having a wierd issue all my own?

I'm just wondering as a newbie here (four weeks yesterday, if my math is right ) if it's common practice for hubbers to write hubs with the intent of ridiculing or tearing apart other hubbers? I've recently experienced...

I came across this hub and almost fell out from shock! Is stuff like this really allowed on HP or should it be flagged a hundred time to get it off quicker?http://hubpages.com/hub/SHIT---3-Main-Categories
