"America's top 25 overpriced cities: see if yours is on the list"

Oh, it isn't a table.  It's one at a time.  Yeah I'm not tapping a slow-refresh link 25 times to see.  And now I also don't trust Forbes anymore for serving that up to me in that format.

Is it worth it?  Alienating your customers that way?  Yes, I was exposed to that first ad, but now I will be hostile to it and you and never see that second ad.

Yeah, I don't look at those goddamned things anymore. It's annoying as hell.

Just about everyone I have seen mention this type of click bait hates it. Are the sites that use it blind to this? I don't believe so, but do they really get enough first-timers and masochists to make this format worthwhile?
