The simple reason I use content blockers is...

... When I read websites on my mobile, I DO NOT WANT YOUR BLOODY APP! And gambling sites specifically are guilty of forcing a redirect to the mobile OS app store through their ad. That is the worst kind of behaviour, and yes, that consequently means sites like El Reg lose out on ad revenue.

It's the content producers like El Reg who should police the ads they serve more closely and insist on a ban on ads that force app store redirects when served on mobile platforms.
