STOP posting ads with music
It is especially annoying when I am on the phone or in a zoom meeting. The music for ads for Greece are especially annoying. My wife keeps running into my office asking what are you doing.

There are now three separate complaints about this Greek tourism ad posted to this forum. Judging by the bulk of other postings and suggestions, AOL does zero about any issues that deeply annoy a significant number of their users.
is there any point in voicing our concerns if there is no response, action, or acknowledgement from AOL?
I'd also like to object to the Greece ad and the sudden, continuous, annoying music loop that can't be turned off. First time that I've seen anything like it on AOL mail and it's obnoxious. No way to turn off the music!

There is one specific ad that keeps coming up on AOL Mail and ONLY AOL Mail. It is unable to be closed, muted or opted out of. It autoplays extremely obnoxious music and DOES NOT STOP until I refresh the page or close the entire tab. This has been going on for over a month now, and on multiple browsers. (Windows 11) There is an “about this ad” I can click that brings me to see it is put out by “one of Yahoo’s advertising partners,” but that page offers no option to stop showing it to me. It isn’t even as relevant as they claim it is. Please a) offer me the option to remove it from ads I see or b) fix the ad so that it doesn’t autoplay with audio and has an X button. I have a screen recording I can give out for context.

PLEASE stop posting that Greece ad with the loud, repetitive noise (I wouldn't call it music). It is unbearable, and forces me to mute the sound on my computer, Just make it stop!
