Personally, I didn't start blocking ads until I started running into web sites with 2-3 popups per page, ads that jumped/flashed/made noise, and ads that covered the actual content itself. I'm sorry, but many people simply won't stand for that sh*t, myself included.

In cases where the Adds are viral or annoying with sounds and popups is understandable. But some people will go on a quest to remove all adds from the websites they visit just so they can feel "Pure" from commercial influence. OS News is really good at stopping those type of adds from infesting its site. I remember I had a sound add in OSNews that played automatically and I complained about it and I have never heard of one again.
