This is an essay I wrote for a linguistics class. There are some mistakes and there are things that I would change. But it’s good enough and I figured why not publish it? So here you go.
Sometimes it’s seems like the only goal of most websites is to keep you distracted. They present you with endless stream of content. Related links try to bait you to click and read yet another meaningless article or watch yet another video. My solution is to block these distracting elements. Basically I am able to view the content itself but I won’t see any links to related content. Another method is block distracting websites themselves.
