Forgive me, father, for I have used an ad-blocker on news websites...

Sometimes you HAVE to use an ad blocker because otherwise the site doesn't work properly.

Take for example http://www.speedtest.net/ for testing your internet speed. If I don't use an ad blocker then my speed test results cannot be trusted because of the bandwidth & cpu the adverts take up when loading the page & doing the test.
