Please don't subject us to that. Couldn't close down Chowhound fast enough.

    I agree. Really, really, really annoying. I've only encountered the talking ad once (at work, where it was HIGHLY inappropriate), but I would quit using Chowhound if this obnoxious trend continues.

      I'm waiting for the "well, we wish we could get rid of the advertising, but, well, you know, we have to keep the lights on here and pay our moderators to make sure that nothing untoward slips through the gates"

      I agree that the audio ads are an assault on the user.

        I agree that audio ads are inappropriate. I hate them. Obviously ads are needed to pay the bills but audio ads not something Chowhound should be using, IMO.

          Why does the Visa ad only talk about ten percent of the time?
