    I have a sample of one but I've noted that when using a phone and trying to open new and compelling clean tech articles form almost any site they often only will scroll only so far and then will force you to re-load. I notice this with Tesla articles in particular. This is something new but concerning because it presumably causes people to click on an article and give up because they are not willing to reload it 8-9x to get through the article. The effect makes the page lock.

    Always skeptical of this because the point of the anti-neutrality and throttling and ability to discriminate (exclude content and not be dumb pipes) is all about the ability of foisting lies, censoring and keeping dirty secrets. This is a critical juncture to not have ad tech used to actually directly censor by playing games with the scroll function. I firmly believe the end user should have total control over the end user interface.
