adblock extensions killing the scammers’ interweb unlimited source of victims fantasy?
This screenshot taken with “open blockable items” pane of AdBlock Edge expanded upward to show all blocked items on the “content” article deriding adblocking:
(ajax.google temporarily enabled while attempting to register: blocked by default. Before whitelisted a suggestion is sent to webmaster encouraging locally caching tools to avoid privacy raping visitors. Google, an ad platform, hopes their tools are loaded as third party modules all the better to track and repeatedly rape you dearies)
Not that there was much to read of the ‘article’. Without adblocking enabled the page had not finished rendering in well over 12 minutes. It hanged on s.ytimg and googletagservices. Not adblocking foolish? My oh my yes. How did I not adblock while avoiding injury? Alternative connectivity.
Make use of is not interested in new registrations that fail to provide them raping privacy revenue:
^ disabled. get edjumakated: no-www.org
The blathering is concentrated in the unqualified declaration:
sites are paid for displaying them either per-click or, in some cases, via a flat monthly fee
And HOW precisely does that function? The author prefers willful ignorance as do most insisting they have presented an argument (they haven’t).
“you owe me”
No, I don’t.
Article relies on self evident falsehood:
but without ad revenues, there’d be nothing to read
Wrong! How did the interweb funciton prior to the first scumbag advertiser? (not all advertisers are scumbags)
Yes, johnny, the interweb predated privacy raping! There weren’t hoards of imbeciles. As with joining any other society one approaches with hesitation and respect as it is joining. One participates respectfully with civility. Forum moderation is nearly dead with selfish indifference cancer.
Free lunch is real.
I have something to offer to those who sought it. I expect nothing in return.
- My interweb participation is CHARITABLE.
- I came to GIVE.
- I shall continue to GIVE.
- Obviously I shall not give as much or even at all if/when I am not self sufficient.
- I must care for myself and mine first. This is NOT greed.
- Inordinate self interest is greed.
- Self interest is duty to myself and God.
If you do not want your content in the public sphere……… drum roll ……. don’t put it in the public sphere. Protect it with BasicAuth (do use your interweb search skills) or other PayWall.
“but I want my site in the public sphere to be seen and complain when people see it because it is a not-public thing I am offering in public [insert other inanity]”
So close to illumination…
It’s obvious that without revenue to support quality content, that content will disappear
Yes, I covered that already; See above outline: “If/when I am not self sufficient”.
the world will be worse off because of it
Yes, when there are fewer charitable people building the interest the world will be ‘worse off’. It certainly isn’t better with profiteering by raping privacy rogues.
No honest exchange to be had there on their question:
If advertisements disappeared from all sites today, this is what would become of the web. [?]
It would improve in quality and dignity. There would be free market to select winners for micropayment systems. Much like the content I purchase now through a variety of platforms. When it stops being of value to me I discontinue purchasing. Sites will no longer treat viewers as chattle; raping privacy will cease. Society will codify laws creating just consequence for raping privacy all the more lurid when the victims are minor — already unable to contract.
The irrational- and willfully ignorant are not exclusively proponents of privacy raping they are occasionally consumers
if people who want to see quality content on the web at no charge
People with righteous expectations of consuming content produced by the interweb charitable? They’re not irrational. Is the author creatively describing content piracy?
Piracy: not providing just compensation.
In the proper interweb model of charity there is no piracy concern.
If in the author’s construction there are no longer third party ads on the interweb… when this obvious obviousnesses of logic is intentionally ignored…. ah, yes, we having a blathering ‘article’ insisting adblocking is evil and the interweb has always been such a way that it had never been ad nausea.
How about another bite of irrationalberry pie?
So long as Google and Microsoft remain powerful companies with great influence over how people view the Internet, advertising will remain the primary means of generating revenue.
They are? That is some masterful control. Care to explain how that works? A clockwork orange setup while we sleep?
The irlogic is ilrefutable!
say no to blocking ads [and embrace endless privacy rape]
Someone needs to take a refresher course on the mechanics of power. adBlock is my NO to assent to be profoundly violated.
I am not a pirate.

Knowingly [willfully ignorant] injuring others for profit is wrong. If you believe the contrary would you make an argument in favor of child slavery or other human trafficking?
