Pop-up Pet Peeves



So on Twitter,  I come across what I think might be an interesting article, but before I get past the third sentence a giant pop-up splashes across the screen asking if I want to sign up for their news letter. Well I don’t fucking know yet since I haven’t had a chance to see what they have to say.

So I close it. As I read another paragraph, another pop-up covers the lower right quarter of the screen, demanding this time, I sign up for their mailing list…

This one’s for you, Sam

Okay,  so now I’ve stopped reading because this level of desperation is kind of scary and skim the rest of the article (in the unlikely event there’s something of actual value…not.)  As I navigate away, a finale nag screen assaults my eyeballs.

At this point, I don’t care if they have the answer the  Ultimate Question (42),

I would rather:That's Georgia for You than share my email address with these rude fuckers…

Talk to me, dammit!
