Eat a dick you fucking faggot. Ads track you as you browse other websites, occupy more space on the screen than the content you're trying to view, and more often than not gets malware on peoples computers. Adblock is a fucking godsend.

I know quite a few websites that have nice good looking ads that doesn't bother you, like here on 4chan, on which I have my AdBlock disabled.

But most of the sites are just horrible, with porn popups, reddirects and cumshot banners taking up half of the page.

I still use ABE for the automatic hiding of ad elements, otherwise noScript/ReqPol takes care of it but leaves a giant empty square in the middle of the page
>>
There was lots of free content without ads long before Adblock became a thing.

So obviously, adblocking isn't hurting anything worthwhile.

The only thing adblocking hurts is content creators who think using the Internet constitutes an actual job.
>>
>>45510248
No it doesn't. If you set ReqPol to BLOCK the domain instead of simply not allowing it, the element will be hidden.
>>
>>45510257
That, and ads actually hurt the quality of content on the internet as ad revenue is a good reason to shit out tons of retarded clickbait articles
>>
>>45510271
It won't, I block everything by default and still have to hide the rectangles left by 4chan ads if I don't use adblock

Nobody uses flexible-width layouts because of tablets, phones, and laptops with shit-tier resolutions. Everything must be 1024 pixels wide because we're still stuck with 1990s screen resolutions.

The sites only get money when I click on the ads, which I'm sure I won't, even if I disable adblock
it makes no difference
>>
>>45510212
How do you expect them to pay for running the servers?
>>
>>45510282
ReqPol doesn't block everything by default, it simply doesn't allow anything by default. There's a difference. I'm not talking about not putting the ad domain on a whitelist, i'm talking about outright putting it on the blacklist.
This is done in a much easier way on ReqPol continued, if you're using the old one that's on FF's addon website, you should upgrade

The thing with vertical ads is that you only see them at the beginning and end. Most of the time, they aren't even visible on the screen... this is better than them being horizontally laid out and always visible.

>>45510630
The problem with web content is that there's no contract. When I go to a website why should I assume that I must sit through ads that I may not want to see?

If I go to a site and the site says "We can afford to provide content by running simple text and image ads, you must allow these ads to see the content"

I'll more than likely allow it. I've *agreed* to be shown ads in exchange for content.

But when some site shoves video ads in my face that constantly download shit in the background (these days the worst offenders are video ads that will *constantly* stream in on a site) in exchange for content, I don't think thats a fair trade.

If you don't want me to block ads, block your content so that I can agree to the terms of said content... or deal with adblock and stop whining.

Their websites should be a vehicle for them to make money, but it shouldn't be the way they make money. That would be as retarded as the majority of cars having ads on them so they can make money while people drive them on the way to work. No, the car is just a vehicle used for the worker to make money by getting him to work. In the same way, a website can be used to sell a product or ask for a donation. If it's used for something that doesn't make money then clearly the website had no monetary value. I shouldn't be forced to see your shitty ads.

Why do they deserve it? Why are they entitled to it?

The fact is, if you have something actually worth money that you want to share, you wouldn't be sharing it for ad revenue in the first place. You'd be sharing it for more money in some other way.

Being reliant on ad revenue is the lowest form of revenue possible on the Internet and I have absolutely no pity for anyone who cries that they aren't being paid for doing something so pitiful.
