Vote off the Island - Loud Ad from Square One

I would like to vote the loud/noisy Square One audio ad off the island. Do I have any allies on this? It comes on with a loud swooshing sound and then moves into a loud voice over commercial. Moreover, it does not respond immediately to the mute button. Maybe its just me, but I find these "sound ads" startling and rude.

I agree with this 100%. The sound effect's are highly offensive.

I am using Google Chrome with Ad Block Plus extension and I don't get any of these ads anymore.

The ads are very offensive and make me angry, With that said i would NEVER buy a product from any of the advertisers who's ads have audio.

"Loud" is the operative word here. These sound's would almost be tolerable if they were at a reasonable level, but someone crank's the volume of these ad's way up.
