About a quarter of the page visible on load and four clicks to clear out the banners. What is this nonsense.

@jamie I don't use sites backed by Medium or Oath. They're difficult to use because of their data-mining agreements.

It's sad that we have to choose to avoid content purely based on their use of anti-privacy terms and conditions.

As for appearance, big fonts for banners and lack of consideration for layout on mobile devices is becoming more common.

@jamie This nonsense is the reason, why I decided to stop reading medium blogs.

When you or anyone else hosts their blog there, sorry, but no sorry. This nonsense has to go away.

@jamie Ah yes, a website designed for "readers" circa 2019.

Medium has so quickly circled the drains.

@jamie would a pihole on the network help enough? Or Blokada on a mobile?

@jamie uuugh. Mind sending me the link to something as I don't use the site.?

I'm curious now so will see if someone at home can run a test for me.

LOL Medium is such garbage I put it in my blocklist along with Facebook and some other crap sites ages ago.
