Re: "Incentivized" - yech!
"What pushed me to ad blocking was the fact that I can get the computational clap from reputable sites"
that sort of thing has made a few headlines recently (on 'The Register' specifically).
this is why AD BLOCKING (and script blocking, and flash blocking) is part of what I like to call "safe surfing". Think of the ad/script/flash blocker as a CONDOM on your web browser. They shouldn't blame us for using the "net condom" because the alternative is NO web surfing, or risk getting the 'computational clap' as you so eloquently put it.
