Ever been to a website that insists on slamming on your face a "Like us on Facebook!" or "Sign-up to read our stuff!" serving no other purpose than to make their social media statistics that much better? Well, then, Tab Closed; Didn't Read, next website please. Via @drcongo.

If you're going to insist on obscuring your content with some stupid social shit, a promo for your shitty app or a full-page newsletter signup form, then I'm not going to read your content. Or click on your ads. Or help you generate revenue in any way.
