You also can't seem to browse real-estate agents' listings on their personal/agency sites without them wanting you to "sign up" or "sign in". There are many other agents fighting to make a sale, so if they think I'm going to give them an e-mail or any means of contacting/pestering me (even if it's a shell account) then I will just look elsewhere for listings that are not held hostage by technology.

OP, I'm with you. When I encounter these sites, I immediately close the window. Nope, not getting my business.

Same with sites where you can't read an article without having to close a bunch of ads, etc., before you can even read something. Nope, I'm moving on.

It's totally obnoxious.
