Let's talk ad-blocking.

With the arrival of iOS 9, ad-blocking is coming to mobile in a big way, and it's causing a lot of talk all over the web. It is highlighting the internal struggle some feel about the practice, but also the hypocrisy of some of its staunchest proponents. So far, it seems like the real 'bloodbath' isn't taking place where people thought it would be - namely, publishers - but among personalities.

> better ads are not a way to combat ad-blocking

THOM: If there were better ads that didn't f--k up my browsing experience, I wouldn't have gone out of my to find an ad blocker. Every time I install a new browser I just browse the web like normal. Then I get frustrated and need to install an ad blocker. AGAIN.


OSNews has moderate ads. We do our part.

Yet you still install ad blockers.

Because far too many others don't do their part.

My point, made.
