Annoying pop-ups for SA "premium service"

maillot jaune 1 month ago in Website updated 50 minutes ago 53 3 duplicates

Is it really necessary to get a pop-up asking me to subscribe to your premium service every 5-10 clicks? Beyond annoying.

Me too.. if they keep this up I'll just leave Seeking Alpha

It is pathetic to have a popup this often. Do I need a better popup blocker?

definitely don't need more popups beyond the first. Stop doing your best Youtube Premium impression - it's just obnoxious.

Popups hijacking browser behavior, sticking you at the top of articles when you were trying to see the newest comments, locking free features under "notable calls".

This website will burn as you chase away your value.

Good point khanjar24  about the ridiculous popups screwing up the new comments.


Whenever I get a popup, I exit Seeking Alpha. 

The more they spam the less I use SA

I agree that the pop-ups are too many too frequently.  

Seeking Alpha...... stop the annoying popups

Every time I get SPAMMED with more ANNOYING popups I leave the site

Every 10 clicks or so I get SPAM POP UPS so I just leave and stop clicking any articles 

STOP IT -- ENOUGH

Stop the annoying pop ups Seeking Alpha 

Agreed, this is now at obscene levels of forcing ads in front of me that I click out of every time. Not only is it a bad UX, it is a very low-rent tactic as well. If it doesn't stop soon I'm going to go elsewhere for stock charts, info & commentary. I like SA but there are plenty of other places to get the same stuff.

+1

Pop ups even screw up the new comments on a page      Yahoo Finance is looking better with each Seeking Alpha pop up

Your annoying pop ups screw up the new comments to where we have to hunt and peck to find the new comment instead of getting directly to them. 


When this happens, I just leave for a few hours. 

STOP THE STUPID POP UPS 

+1

Seeking Alpha, your stupid POP UPS screw up the new comments    

When this happens, I just leave the site altogether. I am not going to hunt around for a new comment when it was screwed up by your stupid POP UP asking me AGAIN to subscribe to your premium service.

Stop the obnoxious pop ups Seeking Alpha

Stop the POP UPs - take the hint I don't want your Premium Service
