AdWeek requires you to share certain stories in order to finish reading them. Why would I want to share something I can’t read? And is there anything more desperate a publisher can do? Gross.
I want to talk to the evil stupid-genius that invented this.
Fuck everything about this.
Fun fact: idiotic content barriers like this (or the stupid “type in your email to read the page!” thing that is somehow still around) reflexively causes me to hit the “back” button without even thinking about it. And I know I’m not alone.
