8. Nearly every media site asks for the user to disable their ad blockers.

The sites affiliated with the Voice Media Group (Phoenix New Times, Denver Westword, Dallas Oberserver, Miami New Times, etc.) are probably the worst since they require the reader to click off at least three pop-ups and one video before being enabled to view the content. I despise their sites because they use a significant portion of the RAM on my computer which causes my browser to crash. It really makes me wonder why I even have an ad-blocker.

While there are ads on the Anchorage Press, they are nothing in comparison. I do quite a bit of editing to limit threads to the four or five paragraphs I post on DU so I guess that by taking the time in editing the articles it makes the experience a bit more pleasant for everyone else and the reader can choose to click the link for more details. It does feel like sifting through the garbage dumpster though.
