With hard copy newspaper, I would read what I wanted to read, I ignored advertisement because I had no interest with that.

With online publications, the publication annoys the reader with senseless popups. With every online publication I click on to read and am interrupted with a popup, I click out and go elsewhere, and do not go back because of the popups.

Hard copy newspapers today provide an add insert, which the reader can ignore or discard, perhaps online publication can provide add inserts, available with a click for those that want to get them.
