Annoying pop-ups for SA "premium service"

maillot jaune 3 months ago in Website updated 6 days ago 85 4 duplicates

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

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.

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

you didn't stop the annoying pop ups.  What in the actual fuck are you people doing? 

+1

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.

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.

As you can tell from the comments, these are annoying. Or perhaps in the message that says one of my portfolio stocks has news I can use in the premiums service actually included the ticker, I could just remove it from my portfolio.

Can't Seeking Alpha just accept a "No, I don't want it" answer, and remember it?"

Keep hitting me 3 times a day and I'll stop using seeking Alpha altogether.

3 times a day? It's about every few clicks.... it's annoying as hell..

Supposedly there is a mamxium of 3 pop ups a day allowed - IT IS WAY MORE

The POP UPS are obnoxious.  You have made sure I will never buy the Premium Service because of the constant spam.

I agree: Please stop this anmnoying hard-popup.  You've already driven me to another site for my primary financial news watch.  If it continues, I'll just move to another site altogether.  Please remember my choice when I close the popup.

PS: I get it: You want people to upgrade to the PREMIUM service.  I don't want it.

PPS  Really, I undertstand, and you don't need to remind me every time I refresh the page, but I still don't want the service.

PPPS: Seriously.  You can stop now.

PPPPS: PLEASE.

I am a premium subscriber and get prompted to subscribe to premium... grrrrrrr...

Wow, even a premium subscriber gets this constant spam???

I am asked several times a day every single day to sign up for Seeking Alpha's Premium Service. 

I don't want it. 

The fact I get spammed so much will make sure I will never consider buying it even for $1.

Enough of the POP UPs every single day

Another day, another stream of pop ups to join your Premium Service

Once again Seeking Alpha wants me to sign up for their Premium Service. 

I've only been asked over 1000 times before, and I don't want it anymore now than I did the first time you asked.

Somehow, you are determined to try to change this. 

Seems you've adopted the My Pillow blitzkrieg strategy to ANNOY PEOPLE TO DEATH
