The most annoying thing about manual surf sites.

No Sound - A symbol banning sound.

I don't know how many of you use manual surf sites, but I think the most annoying thing about them is when sites come up that automatically play sounds and/or videos when they load up. I want my surfing to be quiet. I'd much rather read whatever the site has to say. It's so annoying, especially when I'm trying to listen to music. Seriously, if anyone has a site like this, please don't make that stuff play automatically. Just have a play button so the people who want to listen to it will and those who want to surf quietly will be left in peace.

i agree with you. it annoys me so much when a site automatically plays a sound and some are not even music to begin with, because it's too noisy and too loud it freaks the hell out of me! i do wish they know how to put a play button instead of allowing the sound to automatically play for each visitor.

Yea it startles me too sometimes. I'm going to have to figure out if there's a browser setting that will block all sounds except for sites that you choose to allow sounds.

This has woken up my baby in my lap. Especially frustrating when he's been fussy all day and finally falls asleep. MySpace has pages that do that - other pages let you play videos or songs if you want to - which is nice - cause I love playing music when I'm cleaning, reading, showering - just about always. It is however preferable when its a choice!

I agree! I usually turn my computer speakers off when I am surfing.
