Oh oh. If FB really tries to make me switch off my lovely Adblocker it will be the day I won't come back. Just like with ATS, they have lost their
minds, the people on FB are the content. No people, no content, no money...bye bye!
Any website that forces me to switch off my lovely Adblocker or otherwise witholds content, can go on without me. I am from a time were we lived
without the internet, so a few stupid websites less won't make a dent in my daily routine or enjoyment of life.
And the illogical argument that websites need the revenue is wearing thin. Nobody wan'ts to stop websites from getting paid for ads. Hey, knock
yourself out. What bothers me is that I am forced to look at the darned things.
Guess where I'm going when there are adverts on TV? The toilet. Or I make tea, or I switch to another channel for a few minutes. I NEVER watch TV
adverts. By the logic of websites you would have to stay put on the sofa with your ears and eyes wide open or else get your TV turned off.
You know that advertising isn't some sort of god given right, despite of the money you pay. You can certainly try your luck and display your stuff but
you can't make people look at them. That is just a risk you have to live with...advertisers.
Instead you blackmail websites to display your cr4p and they pass it on to the readers like good lapdogs.
Get off your high horse advertisers. And those websites that can't exist without advertising...hmmm are you sure? Especially websites that only exist
because of their readers.
We own a website, it's one of the oldest one out there and high in ranks, we get advertising but that's where it stops. From where I stand anyone who
comes to our site can use any Adlocker they like. We did our bit by putting the adverts out there, the rest is none of my concern.
Ruled by the advertising mafia. Never!
