Default Auto-play banner ad with sound

Do you have a way to block ads like these? I just got an ad that started blaring "Coca-Cola Light" out of my speakers. That's pretty obnoxious.
If you were given the option to pay 45 cents to predict the outcome of a coin flip, and if correct in your prediction you win a dollar, you may lose 45 cents on the first try. You may even lose 90 cents after the second try. But if you keep betting, you'll end up ahead in the long term. This is the value of analytics. They do not describe destiny, only the likeliest result.

The new goggles also do nothing.

I don't think we should be getting any ads with sound, but each ad that isn't a CP internal ad (and none of the internal ads have sound) should have a little 'x' at the top right which should give you the choice to 'stop seeing this ad'.

If it persists the only thing I could suggest is to screen shot it and send it to Bingo, ad providers sometimes make mistakes about which ads get into different rotations.
Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position.
But certainty is an absurd one.
