    The whole Internet marketing is based on ads, that's how most people make money.

    What you think about AdBlockers like AdBlock and AdBlock+? It's a bad thing?
    I just saw that both AdBlock and AdBlock+ have 20+ millions installation on Chrome ONLY.

    Few years ago, when I was still a newbie..I hated SO MUCH ads..they were just so fkng annoying.
    I remember I once used a friend's laptop and while browsing it scared the shit out of me lol, because of so many ads that I wasn't used to see..

    Anyway, now I think that this AdBlockers are just making Internet Marketers life more difficult.
    I'm talking about everyone, IM's that make money with Ads on their site, YouTubers that make money with Ads on their videos.
    If I enjoy someone's site, he should make money with the ads that I am watching or clicking.
    Same with YouTube, if I enjoy someone's Video, he should make money thanks to me.

    People who have adblock aren't going to click on ads unless it's an accident. I'm doing advertisers a favor by using adblock, this way I don't accidentally click on an ad and make them pay for the click :p

    I want to watch a video, I must watch an ad for 30s, and then another 30s ad. Sometime, when I click on the close button, it still open an ad. Yeah, I love adblocker.

    I know that when I have adblock on in Google Chrome, it blocks youtube advertisements. I have yet to see one in my Chrome browser. I don't have adblock enabled in my Firefox browser, I get the Youtube advertisements, and other pop up ads. So as for adblock, use it. Lol

    Most people that install it will eventually end up disabling it. And then forget to re-enable it.

    Youtube was the one that drove me to using adblock.

    It started with a little ad, then more ads, then 30 second ads, then 1 minute ads, then 3 minute ads, and then two3 minutes ads,

    I've never minded ads until they over did it. I love ad block.

    anyways, I don't really need ads. I do my research before buying something.

    Ads are for stupid people who are easily brain washed.

    Thank you ad block creator.

    As an advertiser who uses ABP, I'm having my cake and eating it too.

    I'm an advertiser and I use AdBlock+ or AdBlock Edge. Personally I hate seeing ads. If I want to buy something I just go get it.

    They don't have to because they know there's gonna be 20 million webmasters (99% of which won't even succeed) come crawling to them begging for their site to be unblocked.
