Ad Blocker or No Ad Blocker - THAT is the Question
I write. I depend upon ads for a small (shall we say) pecuniary emolument. That emolument is provided by advertising. I get paid for "valid" (whatever that is) advertisement visitations. So I don't like ad blockers on that account. For the longest time, I resisted them.
But there are valuable sites that occasionally have intrusive ads. More and more is that the case. However, and this is worse, some ads do not allow you to proceed but utter a threatening message and lock up your browser! So I've gotten on the ad blocker bandwagon.
Still, it should be mentioned, better ad blockers allow the user to pick and choose which sites he or she will enable ads to pass through the blocker, untouched. That is a great thing. Sadly, probably many don't choose to fine tune their ad blocker for selectivity. And why should they?
Well, some sites offer valuable services and have only inoffensive advertising, not obtrusive advertising. It would be a courtesy to allow them the chance to make a modicum of income to pay their Internet costs. Don't you agree?
