Saved You A Click

I'm sure you've all seen those clickbait advertisements that send you to a website that forces you to click through 15+ pages/images to finally get the question answered. And sometimes it is never answered.

Reddit has a section that saves it's users time by posting the meaningful info without forcing people to wade through all those ads.

So here is a thread where you can post info for clickbait sites that you've seen or found the answer.

Example:

Teaser: Black Panther Just Did Something Only Three Other Movies In History Did
Info: Make more than $100 million during its second weekend

Can you get you a bot on here to do that with anyone who simply posts links without any added to it? DB135 is notorious for it. Not sure if vbulliten is set up for it but Reddit has AutoMods who do similar functions.

I do that a lot as well.

I hate the websites you have to click multiple times to get through the story. Just make it in list form!

Iíve been bored with basketball lately and I clicked on a list that said ranking the Netflix original movies 1-49. I was searching for a movie to watch. Well I made it to about 3 in until the ads. I should know by now.

I rarely click on those sites, but when I do I jump back out after a few slides. On one occasion recently though, I did the fifty states thing. Got all the way to #50 - without a miss - and keyed in my (correct) answer. My final score: Correct 49, wrong 1 (#50, of course). I called BS, but no-one answered. Lesson learned..... I think.

Honest question, what's the point of this thread if it's just going to be copied posts, word for word, from reddit? And isn't that borderline stealing?

I saw an article about that. Can you imagine Oprah vs Trump? Might be kind of hard to run a smear campaign against Oprah.

I thought they were interesting. Had hoped that others would offer their own. Still hopeful.

As to Reddit, I mentioned in the first post that is where I got the idea. I'm sure the people that actually created the clickbait sites are annoyed with Reddit for "borderline stealing." I guess by extension I might be taking something from those clickbait sites.

So do you have anything to offer in this thread or is this just another one of your attempts to troll?

I am reading what you post but to be honest I don't really do those clickbait websites anymore.

I love the ones that would show a celebrity and then not even mention them.

I remember reading one where it said celebs who have no money and it showed Trump, never mentioned once in the "article".

Personally, I would love to see it. I suspect that half the country would love to see Oprah's name dragged through the mud. I also think that billions of dollars that she is worth could be taken as a sign from God that he wants her to run.

I get suckered in every once in a while. Usually the celebs and you are not going to believe what they look like now. Always found it funny when they didn't include the person that the original ad showed.

It would be the weirdest election ever. I have no problems with Oprah, never watched her show and don't know of any bad things she has done. I am sure there are plenty of stories out there that may expose some bad behavior.

Just saw a click bait thing. Made me laugh because they messed up the headline. It read:

New helmet designs for all 32 NBA teams


Can't even get he headline right lol

Clicked on the link and the first image was a new design for the Vikings

Can you post a link to the original article when you do these? Sometimes I like to read them if the topic seems interesting.

Interesting. Are those the days when it had cocaine in it?

I wonder how many people tried to paint alcohol red to avoid taxation?
