Web Page Ad Blocker Retailation Example

Web Page Ad Blocker Retailation Example

This embedded image is my first encounter with a website that has had it with ad blockers. I can only guess, but I don't find it at all hard to imagine that this website is the portend of things to come re end users and their browser ad blocking add ons. If I turned off my ad blocker the blur lines would disappear.

But for each and every reaction, there is an opposite reaction, and I full expect that the 'good guys' are very hard at work figuring out the coding to defeat this new wrinkle. GO AD BLOCKER TEAMS!!!

On a sidebar note, wanting something for nothing must be genetically encoded as it is rationale/reasonable that the costs involved for a website be sustained by some revenue source, and ad revenue is one of the few options. Those sites that humbly ask for a contribution to sustain them are really [fill in the blank].

The only other realistic option is for a site to require registration to view it, with a valid email address to complete the registration, and then sell that stuff to anyone who wants to buy it. A site via a paid subscription is based on the same principle, or lack of PRINCIPALS.

Oddly, I don't use ad blocker. What I do is to increase the size of writing on the page to 125% and that magically gets rid of all the sidebar adverts on newspapers and social media. Banners still appear but most aren't that bad.

If I find the adverts too intrusive, I look elsewhere. Though I do set my browser to block certain things.
