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.

Too bad, I can only vote you up.

Too bad, that common sense is thrown out when people get on the 'net.

And too bad, that clear headed, reasonable statements like yours have become a rarity on the 'net.

Again, you don't deserve just a "+1", your comment should actually be shown as ending statement of this article.
