The reason I block ads
I have decided to block adverts for a few reasons:
* There are so many adverts on a page that use up valuable bandwidth.
* I had enough of those adverts that have flashing graphics.
* There have been too many dodgy adverts serving malware.
If those issues are resolved with a simple text based advert that is clearly marked and that does not download any other content or involve stealing logins, then maybe the site will be given the green light. Until that time, I will use my adblocking plugin.
It is up to the advertising community to clean up its act.
