E-Hippies on parade.
Google makes all their money through targeted ads.
Webmasters are able to create great sites at no fee to the user, all down to advertising.
Without ads you wouldn't have free hosting. It just wouldn't happen.
Social Networks can exist, becuase of the ad supported nature of their business.
Where do youtube get money for bandwidth? Adverts.
The web is supported using Adverts.
Like it or loath it, using Adblocking software is detrimental to the internet as a whole.
If you want to throw up your arms and whine about targetted ads, or advertising as a whole, just stop. You might as well put on a beret and run the streets proclaiming that all property is theft, becuase nobody will listen to that either.
