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.

You're simply ignoring the point.

How?

Everyone thinks that they're less susceptible to ads than most people.

And 50% of people is right.

I too feel the inclination to say that, but I have no real reason to think I'm any less deluded than everyone else, and neither do you.

Any proof or good arguments for that?

Anyway, surely people unaffected by ads should care about them less, not more.

Don't be obtuse.
