Why do I again have to listen to Chow Tips?

This has happened before, and it hasn't become any less annoying. I'm not even on the Chow site and have to listen to an endless succession of Chow Tips,

Please do something to stop this1

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. You must have accidentally clicked on the window. Once you do that the videos never stop. I find this policy incredibly obnoxious on Chow's part, but they're the ones who run the site. If you want to avoid these annoyances, get an ad blocker and block Chow Tips and whatever else about this site that annoys you.

      Once a tip is finished, it does go on to the next. But it is easy to stop that:
      - click the pause button on the video player
      - select a Supertaster video instead
      - change that tab to some other chow page or anything else
      - close that tab
      - close your browser
      - mute the sound
