Acceptable/nonintrusive ads? WRONG!

So I got the message about Acceptable Ads and thought "why not?". I browsed to Macworld and then opened a second tab to do work. A few seconds later I'm hearing music from SOMEPLACE! It took a bit to realize Macworld had an auto-running video going.

THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE NOR IS IT NONINTRUSIVE! How could you guys possible think it was?

Since I can't trust your judgment, I'm turning off the "Allow nonintrusive ads option" and will recommend that others do the same.

It's a shame. Conceptually it might have worked, if it hadn't been sloppily carried out.
