While I understand the need for funding revenue I really detest in-your-face ads and the increasing trend for popups on websites. The sooner a popup appears, the sooner I'm outa there!
They represent bad web design and I won't have them.
No I don't want to subscribe, I've only just got here and I'm even less likely to return now..
No I don't want to 'like' your page..
No I don't want to enable location..
No I don't want to 'share' your page with all those bloody side-icons sliding in and out.
No I don't want to enable notifications..
No I don't want to 'sign up' for some damn newsletter..
No I don't want to look at your damn adverts..
I especially don't want flashing, moving ads distracting my attempts to read your material.
And I REALLY don't want embedded video crap auto-starting without my permission, using my bandwidth and talking over my attempts to read your shitty, overcrowded web page..!!!!
