So many sites ask you for notification permission on first visit in a very spammy way. Or, put their "share this" in a spammy/ad-like location. and i think that's the problem, web site owners being dumb and pushy.

If there is a site you really like, that you want to share, and would want to recieve pertinent updates from, if you so choose without being hounded to do so, aren't you happy the feature is there?

When I implement this that's how I think anyway.
