I can understand the need to make an urgent appeal, and to be honest I think this is a huge need. But (and there is always a but) when I cannot get out of this urgent appeal and advertisement to read the blog there is a problem. I have been noticing a trend of pulling up advertisements over the content of what you are reading to get you to pay attention. Its like that kid that keeps yelling “look at me, look at me.”
All this to say, this kind of advertising really overwhelms me.
To the point of me just clicking X and moving on.
