Cringe as we may, this is the sort of lingo & mindset that we need to 
address/adopt to raise accessibility awareness. I mean enhance 
brand-recognition and designer buy-in for accessibility issues.

Probably what would get the Washington Post's attention is if you say: "I 
get so annoyed with popups that I refuse to buy any product they advertize 
(& make a list of what not to buy, & tell my friends not to buy them)."
