The new technique that I find particularly obnoxious is when a site detects your mouse pointer leaving the viewport and pops up a CSS overlay begging you to subscribe or buy something or take some action other than leaving the site.

Yes this is annoying but like everything else once the public gets used to it, they will ignore it.
Does your robots file allow crawling of the pkg-citadel room? It is full of links to spammy shit, should probably not influence any ranking on any search engine.
But ... since it's a private room, it isn't visible to crawlers. So I think we're ok?
Sounds plausible. I only stumble into that room accidentally at times. It is fishy in there.
There was a relevant mail about removal from debian testing due to some build failing. About 3 days ago or so.
But we WILL blame Facebook.
Minions fixed the problems, as it seems.
(Great ... it would be just perfect for the humpback whale tank I want to build in my garage.)
Too many businesses are electing not to have a website and just use facebook.
Facebook as a business portal imposes strict limits on what one may do with their web presence.
Which sorta suggests they aren't really doing anything anyway. At least, not anything web-specific.
From a practical point of view, they probably think "well everyone's on Facebook anyway" and while it's a good idea to meet people where they are, it probably benefits Facebook more than it benefits the company establishing a presence there.
Or perhaps many of them are thinking "all the other consumer brands are doing this so we should too." AOL Keywords.
Yes, we are all individuals.
We are The Borg. Resistance is futile.
We are not men, we are DEVO.
BEST BAD NEWS *EVER*
"We're not able to play this video if an ad blocker is enabled."
(Seen on CNBC)
That's fine with me! I clicked on the story to *read* it, not to have your auto-playing video raping my speakers. I've said it before: unless your name is YouTube, I do *not* want a video to automatically start playing. If you think your unwanted video is a value add that I can't have unless I turn off my ad blocker ... GOOD!
That is good news, now if they would only stop the video from scrolling the page as you scroll down they would be on to something.
What's everyone else doing these days? (No, I will not switch to gmail, so don't suggest that. If you suggest it I will kill myself and my blood will be on your hands.)
Have you tried facebook mail?
