Advertisers did it to themselves when they grouped up with malware writers. And sites with multiple video ads that keep talking over one another. And giant background ads that are so poorly coded they bring a high end gaming PC to its knees.

I block at the DNS level and I never seem to get the guilt trip.

Make your ads be less annoying and I won't block them.

Blocking ads is the epitome of egocentric selfishness. I don't allow popups or runaway scripting but outright blocking all the sources of the ads is willfully denying revenue to websites, which often don't even make enough to cover the costs from ad revenue to begin with.

It is disgusting.

I do, however, dislike when a site acts as if my not allowing runaway scripting is the same thing as blocking ads. There are plenty of sites that display advertising without runaway scripting. The scripting should be on their end, and not on mine.


So that's like saying you should watch commercials because otherwise the show you are watching is not going to get any revenue.

They get the money whether we look at the ad\commercial or not.

Pretty sure a TV ad works differently than a website ad.

If nobody looked at commercials, do you really think TV stations would still get paid to broadcast them?

If you want to make money off of me visiting your website then require me to pay to access it.

If your content isn't worth charging for then putting a bunch of ads all over it that disrupt the content and put my system at risk isn't going to put me on your side.
