    "Lulz you guys that have to look at adverts, I just use adblock... Adblock, guys. Herd of it? I use adblock. It blocks adverts guys.. Do you use adblock?"

    ^ These people deserve to be mauled and mutilated by a wild animal. Something humiliating, like a badger or an aardvark.

    I'd rather look at popup ads all day long than see another post by someone explaining how great adblock is. These people are the scum of the internet. Pity there's no software to eliminate them from my life.

    It's not the fact that they are blocking ads that's the problem, it's that they go on and on about it, like they are better than us.

    Where are all the guys going on about the fact that they don't have STD's because they used a condom?

    Whew.

    I love adblocker. I use it everyday all day. In fact I donated to them a few times. If you are referring to running adsense on websites you can write a script that detects adblock and deny them access saving bandwidth.

    Did I mention I love adblocker?

    I always have and always will use adblock. Never in my life have I clicked an adsense advertisement. But since I stated using it, I find myself clicking an ad placed on a website I like and found use of.

    Also, for youtube channels I wish to support, I've adblock set to turn off automatically for.

    Adblocks there; why not make use of it?

    I used to use AD-Block all the time but I actually think it pays to see what and how others are advertising.

    their a easy way to make life annoying for those who use adblock.

    use a adblock detection script and block the content, if every ad networks would use this then we can fight back.


    like on my site, if you have adblock I redirect you to another site where i monetize away adblock cant stop.

    I use AdBlock+ and I'm proud. Every time I temp disable it and watch a YouTube video, I'm confused as shit for the first 10 seconds because I'm wondering why I'm seeing an ad on YouTube. Then I turn adblock back on and press refresh. AHH, MUCH BETTER! :)
