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.

Disable flash. This is what i did a few weeks back. Html5 ads cannot contain malware, since by design, Html/Javascript can't access anything on your pc/phone.

Nice in theory, but we all know about browser exploits. Disabling Flash is simply not enough.
