In the first days of the pandemic, while trying to read info on my cellphone, where I'm usually logged out, I was bombed first with that ugly black thing signed by Katherine Maher, then in the next page I navigated to, with a red message directed at "my friend from Portugal", both of them asking money using the context of the pandemic. Which I found not only annoying but on a bad taste.
It seems to only affect wiki.en, but it is still quite annoying, as I read it often using the cellphone. On the other hand, if WMF insists in that strategy, maybe it means it's working somehow? But there must be less aggressive ways of reaching to the people...
