Internet & Networking We're still in the slow news period, so let's talk about something we discussed before: blocking advertisements on websites. Up until, well, today, I didn't block ads - not because of some ethical objection or whatever, but simply because I couldn't be bothered to setup AdBlock. Today, after taking a closer look at some of the websites I frequent, I decided to take the plunge and install AdBlock on all my machines. The following set of screenshots should pretty much explain why.

The fact that this got voted down 4x just goes to show that the internet generation is a generation of sociopaths. Sorry to hear that your comfort is infringed on by having to deal with some ads. There is no sense of personal integrity, no sense of responsibility, no sense of community in the majority of the under 30 crowd. Sad.
