I’ve never used an ad-blocker.
They’re something I didn’t even know existed until about a year ago, and even if I did know of their existence sooner, I never would have set foot near one.
I’ve understood for a long time that nothing in this world is free, and that goes for the content I consume on the internet as well. I’ve consciously looked at the ads that I see on my favourite websites as a good thing. When I see an ad, the people who create the content get paid. So when I discovered just how large the majority of my friends – and apparently the rest of the tech-savvy world – is that uses an ad-blocker I was shocked.
