I also felt like how Benjamin's dad did.. If one is viewing using the
mobile app, the red banners fill the entire screen and one has to scroll
down to get to the content. I think the fund solicitation ads need to be
much less loud than it's now..

My dad recently said to me:
"I was solitated by them after looking something up. I thought it strange
the way they were pleading for donations. They made it sound like they
might be shutting down if we the general public didn't donate."
Has there been any research into how common it is for readers to get the
wrong impression from the marketing messaging?
I've heard of this sort of thing happening before, and I think it's highly
antithetical to our values to be deceptive.
