    I think the problems start when the incredibly intrusive pop-up (on this article it’s the latest “scroll your entire screen away” style) and starts asking you to join some mailing list or other before you’ve even had the chance to read beyond the title – it’s like the site that asks you to fill out a review their site within 6 seconds of landing – how can you possibly have a valid opinion by then???

    I’m NEVER going to sign up to a mailing list until I know if it’s going to give me something I want – so there is absolutely NO point in pushing your mailing list at me until I’ve read at least 20% of the article.

    So I’ll say no thanks – where as, if you had waited until later, I would have been more likely to consider it.
