Annoying interference from pop up

Cannot enjoy a read without this type of rubbish popping up looking for a review and only way of getting rid of the pop up was to submit this review.

Full Screen Adverts, Broken User Accounts, & Woefully Plagued

Total waste of time. Can’t log in, can’t leave comments, they don’t respond to issues when you contact them about it. Even while writing this review I couldn’t see the test I am writing - I had to guess whether I am spelling things right and not being autocorrected but wistale. Pure shirt

Secondly, you will need mobile phone number and a Facebook, or Twitter, account to use the comments. Even then this might not work. I don’t use either social network, so I had to create a Twitter account. I struggled to successfully post any comments on their website, until I downloaded this app. Then, when I downloaded the app, logged into my (new) Twitter account through the app, then tried to leave a comment, it then asked me for a telephone number to verify my account. After doing this once, my comment successfully posted. Now, every time I try to comment, it continues to ask me for my mobile number. When I put my mobile number in it just tells me that my number is already in use with a user account, and won’t post what I write.

Woefully plagued website/app which is milking its reader base without fixing its issues.

Has its flaws

I think the level of journalism and the instantaneous updates once there is updates on a news story is great! The only two gripes I have is the comment section seems to be littered with bots that leave very worrying comments that seem set to aggravate readers.
The other is I’ve seen more than a handful of articles with misspelled headlines, should be an easy fix before publishing the article lads!
