That aint how ads work nowadays. They pay out per load, not per click. Advertisers want you to see their brand at the very least. I'm with you, though.

I'm of the "Don't f%&$ing tell me what to buy" anti-marketing crowd. Meaning, I've never clicked on an ad. Ever. I don't even bother looking at them in magazines, and mute the ones on TV. If I want something, I'll get it. I don't need an ad to tell me I need it.
So keeping that in mind, as far as I know, you only get revenue when someone clicks on an ad. How are you getting revenue from people like me who won't click? I'm only asking because this doesn't logically add up to me as a solution.

I just think ad-blocking in general is unethical and overly-paranoid.
I've never blocked ads. I've never had problems.
Of course, I have intimate direct knowledge of how the ad technology works, and it's nothing like the FUD the ad-blocking companies feed you.
