Another bitch about Stuff

Postby aardvark_admin » Wed Aug 29, 2018 5:38 pm

Geez... I'm getting tired of reading a story on Stuff then, several hours later, seeing a different headline on the same subject, only to end up at exactly the same story I read previously. All they've done is change the headline on the front page -- the headline and text of the story they link to is completely unchanged.,

Talk about taking two sucks of the sav!

I guess they're really desperate to get their figures up so they can keep the ad revenues flowing :-/

You've only just noticed?

I presume it's just click bait to dangle in front of advertisers.

I just noticed all Stuff videos over the past week now have a non skip 15 second ad in front. Guess I won't be watching many more of them.

Hell, I disabled auto-play on those vids ages ago and always felt that the signal to noise ratio (content vs ads) was too low to warrant playing any of them anyway

Generally, I avoid the videos.

One just has to be careful not to move the mouse across the video frame.

Don't see how to disable auto play on my tablet which is the only way I read Stuff these days..

I use Mozilla but I believe that Chrome also has a way of stopping vids from playing automatically. What browser does your tablet use?

Oh anoth bitch. I live in the Waikato so I look at the Waikato regional section. Very little there about Waikato and lots about the rest of the world and NZ.
