Re: Works for me, too
Plenty of advertising outfits rely on tracking and analytics services, so are not thrilled with Mozilla's plans as it's already no picnic turning a quid online.
The world's smallest violin is playing for all of you right now. You were wooed by the Powerpoint presentation filled with colorful charts/graphs/ and $$$$$ symbols. Host a website and you will rake in millions on the ad revenue. Host several and you will rake in billions. You will be another dot-com billionaire.
People hate ads. The more intrusive, the more hated. I've seen kids on flash gaming websites, they can't close the ads fast enough. If you are in your car listening to the radio and an ad comes on, you switch stations. If you are watching the telly and an ad comes on, you use that opportunity to grab something from the fridge or use the loo. Oh dear, this isn't what the slick marketing snake oil salesman told me.
I know exactly how much it costs to hosts a website with daily visitors in the millions and therefore aware of the associated costs and importance of ad revenue. This is nothing to do with helping pay for a website(s), this is about paying obscene executive salaries and fueling the corporate mentality of making as much money as possible as fast as possible by shoving ads down people's throats and then having the gall to feel indignant because I choose not to view/listen to your ads via adblocker/switching the station/muting the telly.
