I do not like ads either.
But I wonder if people hating to see any ads ever
consider that nothing free is free.
I can guarantee that I will never buy anything I see from an ad on a
website that I didn't deliberately seek out. I subscribe to certain
store ads (Best Buy, Fry's, JoAnne's, Michael's) because I buy stuff
from them only when it's on sale.
It was not about buying....
If I see involuntary ads my response is invariably negative, along with
a little shot of annoyance which borders on some kind of psychological
pain. Do the generators of the ads consider that my pain is a proper
price to pay for viewing their ad-supported content, or would they
rather that I remained neutral regarding their products?
Overconsuming of free content makes harm to a human mind.
I subscribe to local paper and that includes internet access.
Yet, I cannot view on line unless I turn off ad block. I complained to
Gannet who owns the paper and they said that ads are part of the price I
have to pay.
I don't subscribe to the local paper, and got a limited amount of free
articles. I would instruct Firefox to forget the site and get free
articles again. It was tedious, but worked.
Then they put up a paywall which I blocked using the Privacy Badger
extension. Now all articles are free.
I just tested this in a test profile allowing ads and the paper loads
just fine. After reading 3 articles I got this message.
