I read an article on HN today about how facebook has destroyed the open web. I have not used Facebook for many years, so I don't actually know what is is like anymore. While this very well may be, I could not help but be baffled by the irony of the way that International Business Times works. Not only does it start to auto-play some crappy video ad as soon as you land on the page. Once you get to the bottom of the article it shows you this:

Facebook may have destroyed the open web. But its sites like IBT that have destroyed the rest of it.
