I had slashdot open in one tab and was actively working in another when suddenly advertisements started to play. I could't figure out where it was coming from but after closing tabs one at a time I found it was Slashdot. Their video ads now play without prompting at full volume. Not muted, not at 1% volume, but at full normal volume. Unacceptable to all, not just me. I expect readership to drop drastically as other readers encounter this awful behavior.
