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.

Yep, David Adams (on behalf of OSNews) asked the readers this about a year ago: http://www.osnews.com/story/21476/A_Note_About_Ads

Never before or since have I seen such a polite request to voluntarily consider ads, and even to contribute.
