RE: interruptions

+1 to David,

The company / bank I work for is building a complete new environment using AI where we especially try to trigger customers into new products from our data / black box where this may and may not be related to main purpose.

Suppressing new content not directly related to main topic undermines the complete system and this SC in its current form will be ignored by definition.

I think we have to consider web sites where the advertiser is not 3rd party...
but rather a site that is a commercial site that has its own commercials.

we are stuck on the interruptions. The main issue seems to be the difficulty seems to be we are stuck on adverting.  I think we all know the need but there was a lot of concern that this will interfere with many sites need to make money though advertising.

Can anyone think of a way around this?

The only thing i can think of is to scope the SC to important information, critical services and payed for services.  It would be great if anyone else has a better idea (or if you think this is acceptable)

The current wording would be:
  a mechanism is available for  to postpone or suppress new content that does not directly relate to the main topic or purpose of the content unless it is essential, initiated by the user, involves an emergency or if the content is not funded by the user or user representative and does not contain a critical service or important information.

we had these defined in earlier versions as follows....

critical service


service that is needed to prevent significant harm, risk or loss such as: significant financial loss, illness, injury or deterioration in a patient's condition or effective loss of rights or freedoms

Important information


information the user may need to complete any action or task including an offline task, or related to safety, risks, privacy, health or opportunities

funded by the user or user representative
proposed definition -
the user or a representative of the user, such as a gardeain, has paid money  to use the content or may spend money on the site such as,  eCommerce sites, or subscription services .

(this needs work but you get the point...)

All the best
