Re: they'll happily settle for a small percentage of what they're getting now

I'd like to be an optimist and hope that, instead of driving off a cliff, they stop, think, and make a u-turn to find ANOTHER road to riches

However, what I see HAPPENING at the moment is

a) cliff, what cliff, there's a cliff? Let me get back to you I'm so busy with more important issues...

b) there is NO CLIFF, THERE'S NO CLIFF, THERE'S NO CL

c) fuck the cliff, we can FLY on this magic bullet (anti-ad-blocker, or whatever becomes a "to have" bullet)

I don't see ANY attempt at a "hey folks, can we figure out a BETTER way to get rich so as not to piss of users?". No, the best they can muster is: "how can we adblock adblockers" and "how can we discuss discussing disussions about discussing how to discuss a fractionally smaller banner size cause this is gonna save us, right?"
