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.

Yes I'm influenced by Ads.
Influenced to NEVER EVER buy that product.

As a GUM (Grumpy Old Man) I am most certainly not a target audience for Ads. Add to that I have worked for a company that makes its money by selling adverts.
