But, it only actually works if *all* websites play that way. I personally don't like using adblock, but some adverts just irritated me so much I couldn't bare to see them again ("one weird old trick a 57 year old mom used to look 17"). God, how exactly would you like content publishers to earn money? Erect a paywall around their websites? Adverts are good. Adverts let you view things that cost more than you're willing to pay, for a price you are willing to pay, in the case of the internet free, in the case TV, not very much :) Me, that is, to a large degree quite true.

If advertisers restricted themselves to 1 or 2 ads a page, in the corner away from the main content and left any video/sounds to be played only at the behest of the person viewing the site lost of people wouldn't bother with adblock.
