  1. Excellent post but dang the new autoplay ads just above the “rate this” have a multitude of sins:
    They pull focus, dragging viewer down to their part of screen once loaded, usually just after I start reading.
    The are very loud.
    They turn on my audio even if muted.
    And yes, inevitable commenters, I have all the ad blocking and such allowed in a locked down corporate PC.


    1. You’re the second to mention the ads … which is now niggling me, primarily because I’m not able to repro in Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer or Edge on a PC while not logged-in to WordPress (video ads do not auto for me at all). The adds are placed by WordPress, rather than by me, and I have opened a support ticket about the problem. I have suggested to the Chrome user who raised this point that they try Automute; if you’re also a Chrome user, you might try the same.
