Will the MOAB (Mother Of all AdBlockers) finally kill advertising?

so er..

"avoid the TV show or the website – entirely "

.. suits me just fine, i already gave my TV set away years back (trendy huh)

and use HOSTS/Proxies/noscript/extensions/element hiding and apps for youtube

and such like.

I hate ALL adverts. Yes. All of them. It wouldn't be quite as bad if the advertisers

could be trusted not to be asshats, but you can't. one pushes the rules, the others then do

then it all goes into a kind of arms race.

I also hate the visual noise of it all too, i can filter much of it out in my brain,

but the problem *is* that you can end up filtering out more than just adverts

- you can end up filtering your environment out too.. just ask those idiots who walk around

staring into cell phones - walking into roads, people, objects etc.

If i want something, i go out and get it. I've been lucky i guess, i've always known what i want,

though, i'm a minority.. so it seems.
