No guarantee of truthiness in those quotes.

I'm not picking on you digger when I say this, but I'm not sure about links like that. Not as a mod for the Cellar, but as a web surfer.

You click on the link, and there are the promised quotes. Actually, there is the first quote along with 9 advertisements, 2 links to share the thing on FB, and 8 more click bait stories at the bottom enticing you to get into another clicking and ad serving loop. And then a handful of FB comments written by strangers. To get to the next quote you have to click the "next" button. And you get the next quote, as promised. But this time there are 11 ads instead of 9, and one of them is an auto playing commercial.

I'm not going to keep clicking through to see the rest. If the rest are like the first two, at 40 pages, that would be over 400 ads, and 320 click bait stories.

The web used to be pretty cool, but more and more is being replaced by this crap. If a web page's goal was to share cool stuff for the good of mankind, they could easily fit all that stuff on one page, but their goal is advertising revenue.

It's still clickbait, but manageable. Firefox w/ Ghostry + Adblock Plus.

I just get sick of clicking 'next' all the damn time. On the principle of the matter, I resent it when reputable organizations (The Atlantic, here's looking at you) arbitrarily split articles into two pages just for the clicks.

I don't. I don't go to enough sites with ads to make me bother with it.

I just looked at the photo w/the one liner, and the 'next' button.

'Problem' solved.

No ad block needed. It doesn't matter how many ads are swirling around the periphery, Stay focused and ignore them.
Other than having to click each quote the site runs very smoothly. A lot of that type site have a long delay after you click, which is exasperating and makes me bail.

I assumed that's the ads loading, but maybe they have some sort of countdown timer on the page that keeps it from loading a new one for a set period of time so you have more of a chance to read the ads.
