I saw Alec's response.

It's a shame that they're just going to tweak them and not remove them. I don't think they add anything and they're just a distraction. As someone mentioned in the comments on the article, pull quotes have their places in printed medium because you'll flick through a magazine or newspaper and see one, get interested in the article and read it.

If I've already clicked the link to a review with someone, there's no need for pull quotes to try interest me, I'm already interested. All it's going to do is draw my eyes away from the interview and on more than one occasion I end up skipping the rest of the interview.
