Got some bad news and good news. Good news is you did the part above correct. Bad news is this is a type of ad that I can't do anything about. Auto-playing video ads are not allowed on the site, but this ad is technically not an auto-play. It's what's called a "Hover Play" and is allowed. What that means, is the video won't play until your mouse scrolls over it. Annoying bit is, the ad has been placed in such a way that it is super easy to accidentally scroll over it when the page loads.
So it's within the rules we laid out for ads, which means I can't have it removed, which is something I'm sorry about.
No problem. Thanks for your effort and response.
