The Huffington Post SUCKS. Besides your tabloid-quality headlines, technically the site is a piece of shit. How many add-ins, plug-ins, and a host of other elements that need to be loaded onto each page can you possibly have? I have high speed internet, and your pages lately are timing out on me while they're loading! Oh, and your automatic page refresh function, the one that's so annoying when you're trying to scan through the articles? Each time it refreshes you've got your site meter recording another visit even though it's the same people currently on the site. Honey, it doesn't work that way.
That site always makes my computer freeze. I do have an older browser, but what the hell is on there- tracking cookies?
THey put about 5 flash items per page. That's what causes it to freeze.
I have not visited Huffington Post in years because of the issues with slow page loads, freezing etc. There are tons of sites that offer the same thing they have without all the headache.
It works OK for me. I think a lot could be done to make it slicker, though, and friendlier to all devices.
OP are you the HuffPo troll that always posts crap from there?
DL staff posts all the huffpo links
What I hate about it:
1. The coy headlines phrased for clickage;
2. The DAILY "look at what Kim Kardashian wore" posting; and
4. The DAILY "wardrobe malfunction" posting.
Either you are a serious site or you are just a trashy place to generate ad clicks.
(I also hate the comments moderator nazis.)
Anyone who gives two shits about journalism does not read HuffPo. It's a content factory with poorly rewritten news they pay little (or nothing) for.
The people who comment there never say anything interesting. I never click on that place. I only read the comments on the threads here. I've learned a lot from the readers here over the years.
