I feel the Guardian has the balance right, a few relevant ads on each article (some animated but never with audio) and an optional membership fee with some perks included. |
The ad change on EG recently was the opposite end of the spectrum, almost slowing my (relatively decent) PC to a crawl due to multiple animated adverts and horrible click-bait adverts that make me cringe. Although I'm not a regular lurker here anymore it was bad enough to make me reconsider coming back in future (as previously mentioned I had to block them to restore functionality more than anything else).
