To enter the site you need to turn off the ad-blocker. That's not cool at all.

My Kaspersky Protection plug-in won't work on this site. This site also told me to white-list it or disable my ad blocker.

This site tells you everything about technology, but if you have an ad-blocker, it won't let you in unless you disable it. The site does use a lot of ad trackers. Beware.

Cannot access the site unless I turn off ad blocker. Noscript picks up multiple malware/tracking sites.

Discriminates against users of ad blocking software. Serves dodgy ads, likely containing malware. https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20160111/05574633295/forbes-site-after-begging-you-turn-off-adblocker-serves-up-steaming-pile-malware-ads.shtml http://www.engadget.com/2016/01/08/you-say-advertising-i-say-block-that-malware/

It is time to drop it yet one more notch- possibly even on the brink of light red. For a long time I had been dismayed at the diminishing quality of the content- especially the page-click inflating galleries with poor quality information. The latest stunt is they attempt to block users who filter 3rd party spying/spammy ads. I allow ads- clean first party ads that don't spy on the public. Until they clean up their act this one is getting a time out.

I used to think this site was OK where all you had was the "Thought of the Day."  Now, it appears that you must disable Ad Block Plus to use the site. I have assigned a WOT rating of Suspicious for this reason.  Any site requiring a user to disable their ad blocking software to even enter it represents questionable business practices.

Site has an unusually large number of trackers, and experimentally tries to force users to disable their adblocking software.

Die Seite kann man nur öffnen, wenn man den Werbeblocker Adblock abschaltet. Die Werbung soll einem also direkt auf das Auge gedrückt werden.Darüber hinaus wird man von 8 Trackern ausspioniert.

On their internet speed by country, Romania was not even mentioned. And then lots of falsity:"But it is normal for banks to impose limits on cash withdrawals anyway." http://www.forbes.com/sites/francescoppola/2015/04/25/the-swiss-have-eliminated-the-zero-lower-bound/
