Re: How do people use the web without an ad blocker?
I buy the actual paper edition of the Times each Saturday. First job is to run the mechanical adblock filter by going through it, taking out all the advertising supplements and binning them, unlooked at and unloved. Then, when reading the paper itself, my heart leaps with delight when I see a full page ad, knowing that I can ignore that page completely; even more so if it is a double page spread - I can turn over to the next page without even giving it a glance. The advertisers' "expensively created content" serves a good purpose - in the recycling bin - and has had minimal influence on my purchasing intentions.
