Does obnoxious autoplay reduce thread replies?

    Whenever I type as one word "auto play" in the message box and save, the system kicks out the word, leaving only an "a."

    Similarly, for me auto play is the kiss of death in a profile - as soon as someones music blares I click off their profile like it's a hot potato. Same with most threads. Does anyone else feel this way? Why do people use it?

    I realize "obnoxious" is subjective, but: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2419267/

    It is annoying. This was a fix by the site when auto play was becoming a problem in the forums. I have a music player in my profile, but it is not on auto play for the sake of others who are listening to something else or may be at work or in a public place where they do not want the noise.

    And the thread you linked, I won't go to anymore. The bad part, it wasn't the OP who did it, but a later post.

    I wish there was an option to display embedded content as links rather than rendr them automatically. This will allow you to selectivity click on the images/video/audio that you want to check out.

    I'm using a browser extension that prevents Flash content from displaying, but it would be nice.to have it.as a native feature in the forums.
