Annoying, Co-Dependent Websites


What do I mean by “Annoying, Co-Dependent websites”?

For starters, the image above kinda explains it all.   So I think you know what I’m talking about.  You’re going on about your day, hanging out on the Internet when you happen upon a website that looks interesting.

You read an article or two on there, maybe even purchase that pair of shoes you liked.  Then, you type in “Facebook” to go see what all your friends are doing right now.

When, all of a sudden, %#@%$!!!  This lonely website that you thought you were enjoying won’t let you go anywhere…has now become annoying to you!

They’ve held you hostage with an annoying popup that blocks your activity of trying to go to Facebook and proverbially “wrestles you to the ground” until you confirm that you really want to leave.  Annoying, right?!

Many, like the one pictured above, will even offer you a discount of some sort to keep you from leaving!  Co-dependent, right?!

If that isn’t the epitome of annoying co-dependence, I don’t know what is! Not to mention it smacks of a little kid who no one will play with, that he has to reach out and grab his “friend” so he doesn’t leave him!

Imagine that annoying friend you were hanging out with as a child.   Everyone of us had that “one friend” who would do anything AND everything to keep you at their house, playing with them for as long as they possibly can.  Only difference is they did it with guilt trips, manipulation, bullying, or all of the above because, clearly, they don’t have software coding (and I’ll bet they didn’t have some kind of “strongman robot” to grab onto your arm) to just block you from leaving.

Does this actually work for companies?  I would think they’ve done the research on this, but the circumstantial evidence is overwhelming, that I would think the vast majority of their visitors are quite annoyed by this!

How many of you agree or feel that this is annoying?  Well, then raise your cyber-hand, by clicking “like” below and, in the comments below, saying “yes, I agree (and you can even leave a link to your website in a short sig line)”.  Then, if you’re feeling co-dependent, share this with a friend or two!   heh heh   😉


God bless you.

    • Well, thank you very much, sprinkler tune-up, for the compliment, and for being a regular visitor! I am doing great. Can’t speak for everyone here, necessarily, I’ll let them chime in on how they’re doing, but life is great and only getting better. God bless you.

  3. Greetings! This is my first comment here so I just
    wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading through
    your blog posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects?
    Thanks for your time!

    • Thanks so much, Brain Injury 2013, very kind of you to say so. There are many blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects. There is nothing that comes to mind in particular, so I think you might be best suited to try some Google searches to find them.

      Thanks again, and God bless you!

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for
    getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Almost one-half (47 percent) of the makers checked
    recognized the leading obstacle to applying a 3DP method is the uncertainty of a 3D published
    items’ quality, complied with by lack of talent to exploit the modern technology (45 percent).
