my least favorite thing when reading more than a few screens on a lot of sites is when they break up the article by having a huge ad or related links or something between paragraphs so i think i've just suddenly hit the end of the piece

@bonzoesc Or as you scroll the block the screen "SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE"

@bonzoesc @aral I keep a folder of screenshots on my phone of all the websites I hit that cover massive amounts of the page with ads, cookie-permission begging, newsletter signups, etc. … one day I should just put it all online, like some kind of accessibility epitaph. My policy is, if I have to click/tap on anything to actually access the content, I close the page. I’m pretty hardline about it too heh, I don’t even care anymore. sick of the cognitive abuse. it’s omnipresent :(
