“I’m suffering from design.”  
Technical discussion of how the Web is becoming unreadable

Yes, I think the designers would be surprised at the depth of feeling against their design choices. I'd personally add the preference for floaty stuff that gives no tactile feedback, the hiding of navigation information (I've used news websites where I couldn't find search), the vertigo-inducing bottomless scroll with roller-coaster resets so I have to get RSI constantly trying to go back to where I was looking at ... but perhaps most pertinent is the article you linked to long ago about how ads are now programmed so they suck up browser resources and one has to wait an appalling length of time to be able to read the page because all this shite is trying to load. Feh. If I weren't searching for Wikipedia references and following friends' links, I'd probably read only very few sites.
