Web trends that shit me...

This is likely to be an open ended post that gets updated from time to time, as trends change and websites seemingly follow them;

  • Websites that paginate everything, i.e. instead of posting the full article on one page, each 'step' is a separate page that you have to click through, meaning that they get more and more page views, more page views means more advertising. 
  • Click bait headlines, e.g.  "He Changed His Name for a Horrible Reason. Now He's Telling Us Why"
  • List posts, e.g. "14 Things That You Have to See to Believe" and for bonus hate, when they combo list posts with over the top pagination and click bait headlines
  • Sites with slideshows that inject an advertisement every 4th-5th slide, or even at all

There seems to be a bit of a theme here, advertising. Basically, I'm sick of all the damn advertising that is being injected into websites, time to reinstate Ad-Block.
