Thanks so much for reporting this to me. Audio ads are definetily not something we want on the site, and the offending ad network has been disabled. Please let me know if you ever encounter something like this again.

Noisy ads are still happening, just got a (loud) red robin ad, with a count down until my 'game' started - that game appears to be another ad, apparently served from play pickle. Adblock is deliberately turned off for imgur at this time, but I keep it around just for noisy ads like this.
Audio ads are still happening, mucous ads and cleaning detergent ads. they're rather frustrating and detract from the overall polish of the website. Thought you should know
Still getting obnoxious audio ads for Lysol, Resolve, etc. Fix it please!
I just got an audio advert for Veet, instantly reblocked all ads I'd previously allowed on imgur. Please fix.
I had an audio ad yesterday that started playing in an off focus tab. I didn't think to get a screenshot before it changed. This morning I got one from Virgin that did not even do me the courtesy of having a mute button. Screenshot here: http://imgur.com/1UBuC 
I have been confronted by ads that play sound on Imgur for a while. I can't even see them or find them. Please fix this, I'll tolerate an auto play, but not if I can't mute it.
