These are the sites I've given up on:
- The Huffington Post: I gave up on this because it autostarts a video which hovers over the screen (sorry but I'll start a video myself if I'm interested, so leave it up to me), it has pop-up adverts and you can't opt-out of all its trackers without visiting numerous external sites.
- Cult of Mac: Just far too many adverts. It's more advert than content and the adverts interspersed with the content are particularly annoying. This sort of site is the reason people run ad blockers.
