Re: This is why you should use adblockers

I used to provide forums, and there people could interchange ideas, opinions, whatever.

That has some costs, including my time.

Naturally, I was keen on having ads. Using ad platforms.

As the adblockers went mainstream, I had to close the forums.. I was not only not being paid, but I was losing money.

I was providing these services as a service to ppl.. for fun mostly.. but people dont want to put their money... they would rather have a facebook group than a proper forum with subforums, etc
