Geel9I still believe that using an adblocker is immoral/fucking stupid if you also insist upon having free content.
There are legitimate concerns like malware but with the giant push to get rid of flash those concerns are kind of moot. If you're accessing a service/website, you're costing someone money, unless you're viewing an ad.
A few things:
2) If I'm on a mobile device, accessing a site is also costing me money. Every megabyte transferred costs the user orders of magnitude more than the pittance of bandwidth it costs the website hosting provider. According to this article, one single page load of CNN costs 14 cents, and 9 cents of that is just for the advertising payload!
If blocking ads means a shift in the way the web is monetized, that's fine with me. At least it means websites won't be able to track my browsing habits, steal my bandwidth, and waste my time by loading and rendering junk I didn't ask for and don't want to see.
