Really? An Ad Advertising an Ad Remover?

No wonder economies are failing everywhere. Every man is for himself. It wasn't always so bad, but it certainly is now. I am amazed...

Businesses at specific geographical locations provided buildings with stock so the customer can visit and hopefully purchase. Made sense, right?

Then along comes the Internet. They want a share of the action. No. They want all of the action. Now that might not be so bad, but they have an advantage. They do not have to maintain stock. They do not have to provide a costly building.

Now customers of these online businesses, many of them, are finding this a delight. They don't have to go anywhere. They don't have to buy gas. They don't have to wait until they get to the store to catch a glimpse of what they intend purchasing.

Yet, there is a catch. Online businesses depend heavily on visible advertising on the Internet to show off their products and gather a customer base.

So along come these jokers who realize web surfers don't want to see just a ton of advertisements when they visit a site. They would love, in fact, NO advertisements.

So online businesses willing to capitalize on all of this devise the capability and advertise ad blockers. How selfish and counter-productive is that?

People are so into themselves and their petty lives, they will do anything to further their own interests, hang the other guy. In fact, hang Society.

Yes and then on the other hand are the web site owners who create mindsnatching headlines with minimal content and ad laden sites which are also not a good experience. As you say, there are always the greedy ones!

It is okay with me to watch the ads on YouTube and Hulu because I understand that they need to earn from the things they provide, which is basically free entertainment, that is not really free as it costs consumers a lot to just pay the monthly online internet bill. The ads can be ignored but to block them altogether kind of defeats the purpose. Without ads, the internet would be doomed and business would fail. But I do like the idea of an Email SPAM blocker. I get so many Emails that I have to spend an hour each week or two, just deleting all of them from my inbox.
