here's a shoutout to 90% of websites today:

NO, I DO NOT WANT YOUR F*CKING NEWSLETTER! STOP ASKING!

NO, I DO NOT WANT YOUR F*CKING NOTIFICATION! STOP ASKING!

NO, I DO NOT WANT TO SHARE MY F*CKING LOCATION! STOP ASKING!

NO, I DO NOT WANT ANY F*CKING COOKIES! STOP ASKING!

website publishers ary whining about adblockers, but keep shoving so much shit down our throats that even a dozen browser addons can't make the web usable. the internet was such a great place once, where did we go wrong?

(rhetorical question. it's when we made access to the internet so easy, that every 100% tech-illiterate idiot could get online.)

    The remaining 10%: cool, cool no problem. Let me just auto-play this video for you while you're scrolling.

    you really need to install some adblocker and the 'I don't care about cookies' plugin in Chrome.

    Or stop going to some stupid websites. I don't have any problem on 90% of the sites I visit...

    You have click the close button on 5 separate components before you can read the actual article which grinds your gears when the article you read is poorly written.

    I guess natural selection will play its part and eventually all those companies will go bust, to be replaced by ones who don't do that.

    @Grumm i have both on desktop.

    i don't care about cookies, sadly, is not available on mobile.

    and there's still soooo many that slip through. and neither one does anything about newsletter-modals.

    also: it's a sad state of affairs that those things even have to exist in the first place.

    @tosensei Yeah, agree that on mobile it sucks.

    I hate looking up stuff on the phone.

    With "once" you mean the time when you cold indefinitely spam alert dialogs to prevent users from leaving your page?

    @guarana Oh right. My favorites are the sites that switch to a full-size "please stay" thing as soon as your cursor leaves the page to close the tab or whatever.

    @sameoldfears I'm pretty sure that if you need to click 5 different close buttons you aren't looking to see an "article"...
