Have you never seen Buzzfeed?
Actually I'd never even heard of Buzzfeed, until El Reg ran their last one of these pisstakes. For destroying which blissful state of ignorance, I personally blame The Register!
Worse, since that day, a few weeks ago, I keep seeing Buzzfeed crap now. It's almost like my internal bullshit filters had protected me, until The Register managed to bypass them. Damn you El Reg!
If any articles on My Little Pony porn turn up on here, I'm definitely not going to read them...

How much do outfits like outbrain actually pay for this clickbait stuff, vs El Reg's official adware tariff?
How much will outbrain-using sites lose now the ASA have ruled against it?
"We told Outbrain to ensure future advertising placed by them was obviously identifiable as such."
People don't generally voluntarily click on adverts. Time that website operators, and cowboys like outbrain, accepted that.
Perhaps we could have an actual article on the subject? It sounds right up Tim's street.
ah, you kids nowadays . . . paper tape and a hole punch, so very posh . . . back in the day, all we had was sticks . . . and the only way to mark data was to tie knots in them . . . and we didn't have your new-fangled binary neither . . . there was different knots for each number . . . and no standards for whatnot represented what number . . . i tells ya, you could spend all day trying to figure out what . . . . . . . . .
