    The lycos email service has for some time now been running ads for the Jamster ring tone. That sometime funny, but now just plain aggravating, rubbish that assaults ones ears every time one reads or writes email. Lycos appear to be impervious to entreaties to either remove the ad, or at least stop its automatic play. Does anyone know of a method for suppressing the ads, other than just turning off the sound to the PC. - or of bringing pressure to bear on Lycos to do the decent thing and stop running it. I appreciate that this is not strictly a technical matter, and therefore perhaps not kosher Techguy forum material, but it is driving me nuts!

    If your unlucky, you'll get it on the login page:

    If you are a Lycos user, then you'll get it, Sometimes two of them, after you log in as well!

    Lycos has added a "play" button. The default is silence. Good for Lycos!!
