The situation with pop-ups is bad, but not the worst. Where the site fucks people up though is related videos. It mixes thumbnails with ads, which is a shame. Basically, it’s anyone’s guess whether you will watch a video or get redirected to some other site. Yes, small indicators exist like a number of thumbs up and down. Still, that is not how you treat your visitors.
Web design on the other hand is beautiful. So elegant, simple and easy to understand. Even your grandparents could browse this one.
