Poll: I have a volvo for sale-a (5 member(s) have cast votes)

What should they do with these so called trumpets ?

  1. Ban them. Those vuvuzelas are making me nuts. It's like listening to a beehive for 90 minutes. (2 votes [40.00%])

What the heck. Those horns have been in Oakland at the A's games for as long as I can remember. And they're every bit as annoying there.

I tried watching a WC match over the weekend, and that constant annoying hum caused me to change the channel after about 5 minutes.

The noise does not bother me, but then there is not much that does. I can understand that it bothers others, but a ban though that some are calling for would be a cultural affront.

Ban? What's next? The World is trying to control everything.

Let them use them, let them be noisy, don't like it? This is one of the few times the MUTE button comes handy.
