I have noticed that many web sites are becoming more aggressive in ‘asking’ for ad blockers to be disabled to support them. I tried to ‘help’ a few and the numbers and intrusiveness of the ads was somewhere beyond just breath taking. Ad blockers re-enabled for sanity.
Today one of the US network news sites put up what is effectively a site blocker if it detects an ad blocker. It asks and instructs how to disable it. If you try to by pass it, it puts itself up again.
So much for the internet. Insult us with over the top intrusive advertising or be blocked. I have no problems supporting a few sites and do, and do not mind advertising when it is not over the top in one’s face. How long before they catch on that there is a reason we use ad blockers, and in most cases it is not just to eliminate ads, per se.
