I just adopted a new policy. Whenever I come upon an article that I want to read and possibly share, if the site obstructs my reading with a popup telling me to take part in their survey (or some such, I don't really pay attention to them) I respectfully close the whole tab with "No, thank you" and head over to Google to find the same topic on another site. And I share those instead.

What if there aren't any alternatives? Well, in most cases it turns out to be not that awfully important anyway. So I move on.

I urge everyone to adopt this policy. It's the only way they learn.

    So do I. Popups are really annoying. It's easier just to google for another source.

    What if finding another source is time consuming? How about adblock?
