Digital Data Collection Can Be Prohibitive to Cultivating New User Engagements

Dear 'Some' Online News/Media Websites: 

Please stop with the forced polling - 'answer this question to see the full article and/or sign up' website membership recruitment tactic. Forcing online readers into providing data for content is NOT exactly subscription friendly nor is it the best way to begin a new engagement/relationship with a prospective reader. Not sure why you haven't figured out by now that when you employ data for content digital gatekeepers, you increase the odds of getting something you don't want ... bogus data. 

Thank you.
