Internet & Networking We're still in the slow news period, so let's talk about something we discussed before: blocking advertisements on websites. Up until, well, today, I didn't block ads - not because of some ethical objection or whatever, but simply because I couldn't be bothered to setup AdBlock. Today, after taking a closer look at some of the websites I frequent, I decided to take the plunge and install AdBlock on all my machines. The following set of screenshots should pretty much explain why.

It'd be like going to the movies, and have 3/4 of the screen permanently covered in advertisements. You'd be pretty pissed, right?

Going to the movies cost you money.

Watching the free channels on TV usually do get your screen 100% covered in ads from time to time tho ;)

(I also use adblock btw)
