I've heard it several times. I've usually got several windows open, so I can't say where it comes from, but I don't like it.

For those of you with the good fortune to not have encountered the ad, it goes something like this... it's one of those ads at the top of the page (and I realize that's how SP stays free to us, so I'm cool with that) BUT this one audibly and loudly says "CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE JUST WON A WALMART GIFT CARD" and I'm frantically hitting my volume button and my heart nearly jumps out of my chest! I know I must look hilarious!!

Sometimes I get that ad three times in the 10 minutes it takes to track my other goals and read an article or two. I hate it!!! Sent my complaint in too. Thanks for the link.

glad to know I'm not the only one who's never had this happen...I must have a good popup blocker

is this an ad on SP? I've never had an audio ad pop in

I absolutely do not like ads with audio - like the recently added Walmart gift card ad. Not only is it more irritating than I can say here, but it is startling and extremely disturbing when using my laptop in a setting such as a library or Starbucks... even with headphones I nearly jump out of my skin when I stumble across that ad!

If you agree, please consider dropping a line in the SP suggestion box like I did... www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_s
