STOP asking me to enable notifications

I get overwhelmed by apps over-notifying me about things, and I made a conscious decision not to enable notifications for this app. I want to open the app when I wanna open it and look at news articles when I want to look at them. Unfortunately, several times since I first opened this app, I’ve been prompted to enable notifications fairly aggressively and the app is unusable unless I force close it and restart it. Apple should not allow app developers to repeatedly ask users for notification permissions after the first time if they say no.
