Measuring things is pathetic.

But the flat earthers told me that no one observes any curve.

Forbes clogs up their pages with so many ads that it's almost impossible to read an article without having to scroll around and close pop-ups. I'm sure their market research showed that's what their readers want.

Seriously: why would anyone bother to read Forbes (or any similar site) that has such an antagonistic approach to publishing?

I know everyone hates Forbes science links but I'd say they do bang up job comparatively. Not Subby
Great article

The military is way, way ahead of this curve. No pun intended.

You sound like you need a JavaScript switch. Almost every website is far better with JS disabled. Some don't work at all, and maybe 10% of those are worth turning JS on for, if you have a good adblocker.

I use AdBlocker Pro and a bunch of other plugins that Forbes forbids. So I open Forbes in an incognito window. That's where all Hell breaks loose. Ad upon ad loads. Auto-play video follows me as I scroll down. Ads suddenly fill in spaces between paragraphs, and I have to scroll down again. A new pop-up video starts playing, and I have to close that. Then another ad pops up between paragraphs and pushes the text down again.

The only way to enjoy news sites anymore is to let them load in a separate window while you do something else for five minutes. Then and only then can you read from top to bottom without having to close pop-ups and other impediments to reading.
