Auto-play videos are the worst. They show up in the weirdest places (like when you empty the spam folder in Yahoo mail). There should be an easily findable way within every browser to turn off auto-play. I know some browsers make it sort of simple but not all...

And, Dan, the Times is earning a good chunk of money from selling the advertising on the website. It's a consistent revenue stream so they're going to keep at it.

Well, they aren't making much money when everyone has an ad blocker on. I could withstand a few ads, but if you overload it like that then I'm going to find ways to block it out. Or just not visit (ahem, Forbes, ahem), and isn't that losing them even more money?
