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.

Not necessarily. If you link to the site from social media, other non ad blocking clients will visit, making them money than they would have gained from the ad blocker alone. But in general, you're right you should do something to help the site owner prosper.
