In order to save the internet tubes undue wear please use the following comment template.
I do not have to worry about toxic ads because I:
(Please tick the relevant options)
#1 ☐ I use Adblock
#2 ☐ I use NoScript
#4 ☐ I do not have Flash installed
#8 ☐ I do not have Java installed
#16 ☐ I don't use a toy OS
#32 ☐ I block all advertisers with the hosts file
#64 ☐ I block all advertisers with a firewall
#128 ☐ I use a real browser
(links, lynx, emacs "M-x webrowser-and-the-kitchen-sink", cURL + ed, ...)
On a more serious note, what happens when something like this hits "smart" TVs and other media devices with Youtube/internet access? I cannot imagine Phillips, Sony, Sanyo et al. will be issuing security updates and I imagine the underlying code is a bit of a pig's breakfast...
