FilipeRamalho1581132dI block ads by default, because of the sites that overuse them and to find out if a site uses an adblockerblocker. If the site has ads that aren't intrusive and doesn't force you the ads and I like the content I whitelist the site.
People need a practical reminder, that when they block the good ads, the bad ones remain, or the free internet just stops existing entirely.
RantSomeWhere17234132dAds are a horrible way of making money. Everywhere you go, everywhere you look at, literally almost any website/app you visit: stupid irrelevant consumer culture gets slapped into your face.
“Shiny new Nike shoes, only $499!”
“Visit somestupidwebsite.xyz and find your dream job!”
“This Game is so addictive, try it for 5 minutes and see why!”
Suck a dick. Ads are a horrible business model and in the future advertisers will not hesitate to show you ads in your house, your car, your wardrobe etc. because it’s a quick and dirty way of making money.
If you believe in quality content, make it paid or politely ask for support. Look at devRant. Not a single ad, yet it is such an awesome platform that people pay the creators voluntarily to keep this place alive.
linuswillner1077132dAd networks don’t always vet their submissions so laboriously either... Drive-by downloads are a regular occurrence
@RantSomeWhere good arguments. But not every platform, every game, every product can have such a supportive success. Making something paid limits the group using it like really fucking much. I prefer seeing an ad (I can politely ignore) at the left of my page in order to view the page without any costs.
@AlexDeLarge I'm being sarcastic, sorry dude
It's okay to -- if you have another opinion, lol
JSONderulo494132dWait till you see a Tai Lopez ad
