This front page post contains a video that is autoplaying:

Those of us using iPads and iPhones are unable to turn it off.  Every time we load the front page we hear Sarah Silverman yelling at us.  We have to scroll down (and now that the diary has scrolled well off the screen we have to keep scrolling for a while!) until we find the video and can stop it.  We might have liked her before, but I for one am sick of hearing her voice blaring at me!

I have contacted the help desk but haven't yet received a response.  Assuming they got some (well-deserved) time off for the holidays, I'm posting this diary in hopes the issue will come to somebody's attention more quickly.  

The timing for this, with the fund drive and all, just stinks.

I hope this doesn't happen again.

Thank you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
