Why are these ad-lets annoying and a dirty trick? There are several reasons:
- No volume control to mute the obnoxious ad audio.
- No pause control to stop wasting bandwidth for the video.
- Capricious consumption of my bandwidth without asking permission.
Given that more and more ISPs are installing bandwidth consumption caps on consumer accounts, do you really want to see your bandwidth used without your permission to display an obnoxious streaming ad? I sure don't, and I don't even have a bandwidth cap on my service.
What do you think?
