Egregiously obtrusive

Felix Salmon is the go-to guy for more and more of the stories I’m interested in these days: the ridiculous reverence given to anything said by retiree Alan Greenspan, the easy money habit of today’s central banks, and the crumbling subscription model in online publications. On the last, Salmon reports that Rupert Murdoch has all but confirmed that the Wall Street Journal will go free online, which is a thoroughly good thing.

I also agree with Felix that “any ad which ever covers up the story I’m trying to read does count, in my book, as egregiously obtrusive, and no respectable publication should accept such ads”. Financial Times, we’re talking to you!
