ANDY, I know you need ads to run the site, but the new ones with sound are so fucking annoying. I have to hit the mute on my computer, because there is a delay with the ads mute option. I also can not listen to any videos now because several ads pop-up at once as well.
I will still hit your site every day, not as often and not as fondly.

The delay mute is frustrating and not appropriate for work.

dito on the above comments.
But OMG this guy does certainly have the goods. And by the way just how much is the opening bid????

(ooops…spelling error…should be “Ditto”, no?)

+1 on the ad issues – Andy, I really do love your site and understand the need for the advertisements, but your site is becoming cluttered with them. How many more do you plan on squeezing in?
I feel sorry for those stuck on dial up!

I know that bloggers need to eat and pay rent and you do an incredible job but you need to do something about the sound ads. Provide a warning or something. It’s a problem at work and I’d hate to go back to, ya know. working.
Way to many ads, pop ups and sounds and stuff, slows and freezes my computer…find a better way or I am gone baby… . Why ruin a good thing/page?

what browser are you guys using? i use firefox and have no problems. i just came on with internet explorer just to check it out and had no problem. no one barks at me from pop-up ads. i am not, by any measure, a computer geek. but, there must be some kind of flash blocker to negate this situation.
November 20, 2010 at 2:08 pm
Not to mention that Andy doesn’t have control over the ads. This has been constantly repeated for over year now.
November 20, 2010 at 2:35 pm
No sounds here…….no problem.

I’m so happy I disabled Flash on my Mac. Static ads stay put and don’t make a sound. Yay!

“SOLD….!!!!!!!” (says the 38-yo derivatives trader…
(or maybe I’m just horny)…0_o
Ads? What is this “ads” thing you are all writing about? I guess you guys need to add Flashblock and AdBlock to your browser – All I get for “ads” are these soothing, calming, misty-grey translucent boxes that I know not to click on…
November 20, 2010 at 2:48 pm
I don’t get these ads popping up either, but I would put up with them if I could get Mr Lutz to come over and sort out my hard drive
November 20, 2010 at 3:09 pm
I have been on this site for years and this ad crap did start until yesterday. I use Safari, which I always have, and Firefox as well. If I go to Firefox now the pop up ads cover the comments location.
I have a MacBook Pro, tried to disable my Flash and no luck. Any suggestions?

He should pay me, or at least come with a ‘gift with purchase’ deal.

What ads with sound? (Mind you, some of the popups are irritating enough.)
As for “the item on sale”?
Yes please… but do I get a shipping discount if I show up and carry him away in my own hot, sweaty little hands? (insert hopeful grin here!)
November 20, 2010 at 3:52 pm
isn’t this the same guy that everyone said was so disgusting a while back when he was photographed smoking?
November 20, 2010 at 4:09 pm
DITTO, the ads are really aggravating.
November 20, 2010 at 4:25 pm
He’s cute, but sorry guys, I’m gonna rub it in: my day is not complete until I see Joe Manganiello on the eliptical at the gym–heaven!

I don’t want to buy him. I just want to rent him for a couple hours.

I get no ads, popups, or anything else. Try using Chrome; it’s a great browser.

Maybe someone else is for sale besides Kellan. What do you think Andy?
November 20, 2010 at 7:46 pm
good idea: coming across this picture.
bad idea: Coming across that picture while wearing glasses, having not yet showered, and eating chips for breakfast at 9 in the morning.

um, i’m pretty sure Andy wants to get banged by Kellan Lutz. i mean, this guy is hardly worth talking about unless you want his D in you.

Has anyone else noticed that male and female butterfaces are the new hawt…and they’re getting blonder too??….Hitler would be proud…
November 21, 2010 at 11:13 am
Butterface… oh, he has a FACE?

Was wondering about all of the audio “ad” comments… until it just happened. ANNOYING!
November 21, 2010 at 11:45 am
Love my Firefox. No ads here! Just a great blog.
November 21, 2010 at 11:59 am
I use Firefox on a mac and have no problem whatsoever with ads automatically playing.
Currently there is a very misleading nearly shirtless man resembling a young Kevin Costner in a video box situated in the upper right hand corner of my screen. I clicked on it and it’s an ad for “Morning Glory”. Shudder.

…Problem with non-Jewish people with ethnic German names, Mr. Brickman? You have an issue with people who have brown, light brown, blond, red hair, and of northern European descent, Mr. Brickman? Let me guess, blue eyes too? Why would this be, Mr. Brickman?
November 21, 2010 at 8:53 pm
Ads? Pop-ups? Problems? I use Firefox so maybe that’s why I never have any problems here. I say, keep up the good work, Towleroad. I never miss a day.
As for Kellan, the boy is fiercely hot and sexy. He works it! He’s probably out of my budget range though.
November 22, 2010 at 12:02 am
Now, I’m the first to say that I think Ryan Reynolds is a total hottie… BUT… if I could have him or Kellan Lutz in these pics… I’d take Kellan!
November 22, 2010 at 12:25 am
Firefox and AdBlocker, problem solved.
