Its a free service, would you rather have them charge 30 dollars a month so you could use youtube?


Yea they won't do that. They know if they tried they would kill off youtube and any other number of sites would happily and easily takeover.

The ball is in the consumer's court.


Thats the reason for ads, with adblock the consumer is killing youtube, I mean as long as its a small number its fine, but its adblock users are growing fast and worse of all its the damn ass***** who actually made an ad to advertize adblock, what a hypocrites.

It's not hypocrisy. They're offering a service they feel the world wants and perhaps even needs, not stating DEATH TO ALL ADS EVERYWHERE WITH NO EXCEPTION

I don't see how we need adblock? Its the source of revenue of most websites, its what keeps them alive so we can enjoy them.

You can tell a lot about a person based on how they treat the weaker members of society.

To be fair, I did say that I never have used Adblock, as I recognize that fact. However, I feel that an entire minute for an add that I cannot skip and is not relative to me is a bit much.

You might be ok with ads flying in front of your screen or videos suddenly playing for ads or ads jumping around so you can't click it off but I'm pretty sure the rest of the world would be quite happy to get rid of them.

All those awesome Youtube content creators and you use adblock so they can't make money making the videos you like.

Are you really that much of a jerk? It's not like it's a 5 minutes of ads played in the middle of a show. It's free entertainment, all they ask is you see a small ad.

I'm talking about "need" in the sense that people will whine, complain, and cry until the "problem" gets resolved. You know what I mean.

Youtube is going to charge me to let them make money from content I make?

10/10 good business plan
