Mild Rant

I just want to say that every time I come to a page that starts playing 
audio I want to stop the sound, if I can't stop the sound I'll leave the 
page.  To stop the sound is often confusing especially when the stop button 
doesn't work...often the case with flash.  I find audio pop-ups to be more 
intrusive than browser pop-ups.

Given a choice I would prefer to hit a play button on a web page rather than 
having it start playing when I start browsing the page.

My two cents
