    Seriously annoying video ad. We are paying members. What is going on with this? I do not give them permission to play, even.

    This just started today, but every other screen seems to have a video advertisement that is making it impossible for me to scroll down to see all of the posts. It is very frustrating.

    I also noticed ads for Asian women and adult dating sites. I am not sure why I am seeing these given that I've never visited those types of sites on my computer and wouldn't have cookies for them. HELP @dimopoulos

    Another video started today when I entered the Entertainment area...it is very annoying and then to have to scroll up and stop the video from playing.
    ETA: just started in the Politics area and it is a Maybelline Ad for me.

    It is annoying. Those ads are keeping me from scrolling down the page too.

    Same here. I wasn't sure why I wasn't able to scroll at first. Then I saw the video ad on the right hand side and figured that had something to do with it.

    They stopped playing for me for while and I thought I was good but they started again so I installed an ad blocker as well. It was frustrating and loud.
