Hopefully this won't occur on every visit like on many other sites...

Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against folk occasionally reaching out for community feedback, and in this case the pop-up only occurred once (so far) after about 20 pageviews.

The difference here is that there are MANY sites I go to fairly regularly where EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME I land on their site they show me a damn pop-up asking for me to either subscribe (when I probably already am) or give feedback - and it's even worse when you're on your mobile device as it's typically infuriatingly difficult to dismiss it to read the actual content.

I know, I should rally against it by never visiting - but barely ~10% of the time will I look at the URL from Google, I'll just click to find the info I'm after.

Anyhoo, point is I'm still in the same "session" I was when this originally arose, and I'm ok with them asking someone who's obviously interested in A LOT of the content (ie, I read a couple dozen pages before it asked), but if it's going to ask me EVERY time I visit, that's when I rage quit.

Fair point, I find the popup/over cookies disclaimer that seem to have found their way on to a lot of UK sites tiresome for the same reasons.
