    I love Adblock, I get to skip all the YouTube 5 second ads automatically. It is so great.

    That guy in the video at the end was higher than a kite

    Well still there are a lot of people that don't no or maybe don't even care about Adblocker , but still i assume that it ''hurts'' people their earnings when someone is using it, i use it myself and i can absolutely tell that its doing his work perfectly.

    Ive been using adblockers for years, it shouldnt really effect many things, it will probably force advertisers to include ads in the actual content though which is more annoying IMO.

    Adblock is probably the best thing that happened to web surfers and the worst thing that happened to advertisers and publishers.
    I personally have a love hate relationship with adblock as I am on both ends.

    This isn't going to affect advertisers in the slightest. I would say most people don't care about ads or Adblocker in general.

    Umm this is nothing new. Adblock has been around for years. Watching those ads on YouTube is the most annoying thing ever and gets people pissed off. The only need for ads on Youtube is for music videos where the content has to be monetized in that way to be free for the viewer.

    leeching freeloaders!
    Do they not realise many sites are only maintained by the revenue they get from adds?
    I bet they take there homemade popcorn to the movies as well.
    The number of U.S. digital shoppers is expected to grow from 137 million in 2010 to 175 million in 2016, according to eMarketer estimates. Are they going to leave the internet? No they are going to disable adblocker.
    It'll be like going to the mall and all the shops have their windows boarded up.

    "Help make the Internet a better place".

    What people don't understand is the fact that a large part of the Internet is only there for the author/creator to make money from ads. So if you take them away the Internet will mostly be thirteen-year old girls blogging about their new puppy. It's the same with Facebook, people complain about a lot of stuff about it as if Facebook is something that every person has a right to have, not taking into account that most things in life aren't free, and the only thing that motivates these Facebooks, etc, is the ability to reach a large audience and advertise somehow to them.

    Google actually recently paid adblock to whitelist their ads. You can still turn it off though

    That really sucks for the future of online marketing. They should probably just do it for Youtube ads because they are annoying but blocking websites advertisements is kinda unfair while they make money through donations. They are already seeing lots of hate on this if you check out the number of dislikes.

    Adblock is nice, but i mainly use it for blocking pop ups. if the ads dont bother me surfing then i have no reason to disable it.

    Viewing ads could be nice, you know what other companies are promoting, bring you good ideas for your business.

    If Adblock can be coded to have the function of only blocking annoying ads, how great is it ehh? ;)

    Kicking and screaming mate.
    Just a quick thought though it wouldn't be too hard to create a plugin that detects the adblocker user agent
    and displays alternative content.

    Theres plugins that already do detect Adblock. They say something like, "hey we see your running adblock can you please turn it off" or something close to that.

    Pretty good idea to show alternate content
