Ads? What are those?

Between my Hosts file (which does nothing if they fake where the ads come from), my browser refusing to run Java/JS (which defeats their attempts to script such fakery in the first place), & me not giving SFA about your desire to show me ads, I don't see them. At all. Ever.

You can whinge that I'm running an ad blocker, but I don't even have one installed - I don't need to, you're not the ones paying for my bandwidth, so I get to determine what I download - my system settings prevent you from ever getting a chance to do so.

Don't like it? Tough shit. Until you pay for my internet pipe, *I* get to say what & when I download anything, and your ads aren't even on the table.
