The internet isn't a perfect place, and one of the reasons why is clickbait. You see it everywhere, and there's nothing anybody could do about it... until now. A team of 100+ individuals called "Stop Clickbait" (previously here and here) are the unsung heroes we so desperately need because they do the clicking so we won't have to.

'Stop Clickbait' share the pesky clickbait articles along with a short reveal that uncovers what the title was so desperately hiding.

"I started 'Stop Clickbait' in May of 2016 as a fun little side project," the man behind the idea, Daniel Tuttle told Bored Panda. "I am an advertising major so over the years I’ve become very cynical when it comes to advertising. I am quite fascinated by the spread of online ads and started to think it would be not only hilarious but useful for many to go against the economy of the Internet; ad revenue. Within a few days it blew up with viral posts across social media channels and since then there have been vast amounts of support coming from all over the world. Since then, we have expanded into 10 different pages to specialize in different categories of clickbait as well as in 12 different countries around the world."

Daniel believes that with the right approach the internet could get rid of clickbait altogether. "Social media companies need to provide tools to content producers to incentivize them to keep their content on their social media page," Tuttle said. "One way they can do this is to provide options to generate revenue by posting on social media like Facebook or Twitter. Right now there are no ways to make money directly through social media thus content providers are needing to redirect their traffic somewhere where they can be more profitable like their website.

"Another thing we fight for is to promote media literacy. By being able to read a headline and tell the difference between a journalist with integrity or simple someone using sensationalism to generate a click, the user can make an educated decision on who to support."

"We are the little people joining together to fight against the media giants, and we're having an impact. It's time to fight against the economy of the Internet; it's all in the name, it's time to stop clickbait." See the examples below for a better idea of this sweet, sweet justice, and upvote your favorites!

Well, it would also be good to remind ourselves that previous generations had lot of kids mostly because they didn't have the choice. My maternal grandmother had 5 kids (the other one 7....). Her first born was still wearing diapers (not disposable at that time) that she had 2 sisters. My grandfather bought the first washing machine in our home town, a machine that did not spin the laundry... trust me my grandmother wouldn't have 5 kids in 8 years (probably not even 5 at all) if they could have plan the pregnancies.
