I know that there's a bunch of us here that rely heavily on ads. What's one of our biggest enemies? AdBlock. This may seem like a stupid idea but I just feel like sharing it. Anyways here it is. We will create tons of articles with the same idea. In that article, we can say a bunch of bullshit about AdBlock and how it sucks. For example, we can add some fake statistics on how much it actually slows down your computer, ruins your internet speeds, makes you prone to viruses due to its third party nature, actually captures personal data from blocked ads' cookies, etc... Even say how advertisers will find more sneakier ways to bypass adblock making it useless and harmful to users in the future. It doesn't have to be real. Just make it sound ultra realistic. (all the the things I've said are bullshit btw lol) Then with those articles, we use blackhat methods to spread them and make them viral and because there's a bunch of us, this can get viral pretty fast. What are the results? People disabling adblock and further discouraging potential future adblock users. tl;dr 1. create bullshit but believable article on how adblock is actually bad 2. blackhat methods to make those articles viral and spread them all over 3. people start disabling adblock + less people will want to try it 4. ????? 5. profit. literally Realistically, if this works, it's effect would probably last a month at best as tech sites will counter the bullshit statements we make. It's probably stupid but what do you guys think?
