This is why I dropped my Salon.com subscription

This kept happening, and still happens today. Can’t read the article because of a broken ad server or something.

And no, none of the links actually worked.

And what’s up with the three Next buttons and no article content? This happens all the time too. They are there even when everything is working right.

And here is some more fun. If you have flash disabled, you end up with this ad (click for full size):

And no way to get back to the article I wanted. All you can do is click on the ad or login as a Premium user.

Why even have ad-supported content if you’re going to fuck it up this badly? Just go back to a paid subscription-only service and be done with it.
