Internet & Networking As we happened to be talking about advertisements on OSNews yesterday, and the use of Adblock, I stumbled upon a blog entry by Adblock Plus' developer, who is trying to improve Adblock in such a way that it is less harmful to webmasters. His suggestion is surely intriguing, but will it fly wth Adblock users?

I don't understand why advertisers feel the need to force ads on us, often for products we are not/will never be interested in, and often use underhanded techniques to harvest user information. It's stupid, it's wasteful, and it's ineffective.


Unfortunately, advertising (At least in the USA) is everywhere you look. The more there is, the more it fades into the background, and the more they have to SHOUT to be noticed.
