Which one is the bigger pain in the ass?

(From my "Things I hate" file)

(1) You go to look up something on Google, start typing in the search bar, and there it is - exactly what you are looking for appears - but only for a second or two - then a bunch of shit you don't want appears instead.

-or-

(2) You see a teaser on a webpage, something like, "15 celebrities who eat manure." You click the link and land on one of those scrolling pages overladen with annoying ads, and every time you click to go to the next frame the computer loads another bunch of ads, and farts as if it were an old 386 on dial-up on AOL back in the mid 1990's. So slow and frustrating you decide "who cares" and move on.

-or-

(3) Whenever Google "fixes" something that ain't broken. (Most recent: Driving directions)

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.

IMPORTANT:

Your comment will appear after you have made your donation.
