Unhappy Forced video ads

Today for the first time I noticed the "forced video ads" that appear in every thread I have looked at. Is this truly necessay? For me personally, it is one of the most annoying types of ads appearing at most websites these days. I understand the need for ads but am totally capable of clicking upon any ad that may interest me, no need to shove them down my throat.

Well hell, apparently this only happens if one is not logged in. Evidently I wasn't logged in before.

Yes Kaz I had the same experience this morning with SCOA. I'm setting up a new computer I just bought with windows 10 and it first brought up the SCOA in Microsoft "edge" and I thought it was because of that. But you solved the mystery for me, I hadn't yet logged in and saved my password. My old XP machine with firefox was slow, but it loaded the SCOA site much faster than my new one.The new one is a wider screen that also loads the google search and ads down the right hand side of the screen and it takes a lot longer for that to happen. My old one didn't show google or ads until I clicked on an arrow on the right had side of the screen, so much for progress !
