Yes, because the ad revenue lost by one person admitting he's blocking ads is going to tank the company.

I'm not sure where you went to high school, but I'd head off to the local community college and take some simple economics classes if I were you. Basic arithmetic might also come in handy.

Edit: Yes, I know you were being sarcastic. For the humor-challenged, so am I.

Here's a question for the OSNews-crew: What percentage of users are blocking adverts?

That would be an interesting statistic. I know that I do, but it's not directed specifically at OSNews ads; I use all the standard filters for adblock (atdmt etc) which affects pretty much any news site I visit.

Might be easier to ask the users!

I block adverts because:
1, I wouldnít click them anyway.
2, It wastes my bandwidth.
3, It gives them details about how I use the net.
4, I donít care about 3,
5, but I do about 2.

Is it right to block? I canít answer that.

(I had an OSNews subscription for a year or two, so feel no guilt)
