    That website is terrible man. I’m not going through pages and pages of ads, no matter how good the article is.

    That shit’s fucking cancer.

        I have one actually on Firefox mobile, and the ads don’t show up. I still get “advertisement:” with blank space underneath, but nothing shows up. I get ads for their other articles though, and the information density is very very low. You have to scroll for days to read anything. It feels like one of those websites with articles written by LLMs.

      @FlorianSimon
      I can read the article without any ads. I’m using Brave browser on my Android phone. Is it that they used to be clogged with ads, like articles were broken up across 16 pages with a ad in between each page? That might have been the case for Cracked awhile ago but doesn’t seem to be the case now.

        Same on Firefox Mobile though - but see my other comment to see what bothers me (and what will likely prevent others from reading the article)
