    I'll need to see the ad before I can make a decision. If you see it again, please take a screen shot and post it here. In the meantime I'll watch for it.

    It's showing up at the bottom of this thread for me now. It is animated, with a couple of changing graphics, which doesn't bother me, but this time it didn't make any noise either. :confused:

    I'm not aware of any non-user initiated google ad with sound. Are you sure it was the ad?

    Yes. It's doing it again for me now.

    It doesn't make a noise every time.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Edit: It starts out with an orange box that says "Shake the gift". The noise might be activated on rollover (???)

    Don't these ads pop up according to thread content? I would expect video game ads from my journal before tax related junk :confused:

    I've never seen that ad before, though... For me it advertises free online games :lol:

    They almost seem to show up according to what you're thinking about. :scared:

    I don't know how much it had to do with your journal doubleo; maybe I've just been bummed about our recent losses in mutual funds. :p

    The site directly references Canadian taxpayers, so I expect these ads are not being shown on computers with IP addresses originating in the US.
