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.

I'm just going to ignore your rant about viewing ads, since that was already cleared up by righard and Gullible Jones.

There is no sense of personal integrity, no sense of responsibility, no sense of community in the majority of the under 30 crowd. Sad.

I am so sick of hearing this. Every generation for the past 100 years or more has been complaining about those young whipper-snappers, how they are so entitled, so ungrateful, etc. Yet if anything, the general population has become more educated and responsible over time. I guess it's human nature to think that your generation is somehow better than the generations younger than you, but that doesn't mean that it's true.
