So I happened to link into an article about KB on the Observer today...
I start reading, and the "please subscribe" crap pops up. As in the past, I closed the advert and went on reading the article. It popped up again, and every time I tried to close it, it would go to the fist page of the general news section. Finally, I gave up.
This kind of stuff really pisses me off. Their revenue from advertisers, I assume, is largely based on page hits. Why is the subscription necessary as well?
There is plenty of good content on the internet without the need to subscribe, so why should the reader be obliged to do it? Anyone else find this obnoxious, or is it just me?
