yea I can't take flash ads anymore, and they do nothing to stop flash ads and popups, it started with simple adsense ads though were ok but intrusive
ads was my final straw
adblock plus and now subscribed to 3 blocklists easylist, easyprivacy (blocks all tracking sites from statcounter to google analytics) and Lowe's
blocklist all 3 subscribed to.
I'm fed up with spam in my life as it is, drive to work spam on the billboards, spam on street signs, turn on radio spam every 5 minutes, turn on
television 30 minute show has 15 mins worth of spam every 3 mins. So much spam on the tv they have to remind you what you were watching. Check my
mailbox, junkmail/spam 90% of my postal mail is spam I usually stamp return to sender and force spammers to pay for the return mail.
spam in email of course people agree it's ok to block those.
plus the main channel malware and virus use to get to people is via ad networks, script kiddies can hijack spam iframes and drop trojan malware in
them and sql inject to spread viruses. Once you turn on adblocking you'll never get another malware notice from your antivirus software.
