In defence of online ads: The 'net ain't free and you ain't paying

To ad, or not to vert...

..Me, I'd rather pay a few quid to get content I can trust. Failing that, I'll put up with the adverts...

I'd rather it was all free, and as a result there was far less of it, and what there was was crap.

You see, in the dim and distant days before the 1980s, I used to go to libraries and educate myself about things. That meant that, in conversation, I knew things and the rest of my friends didn't.

Sometimes I wondered why they never seemed to hang around for long......?

But now, EVERYBODY has an opinion dredged up from the net. A wrong opinion, but they come fully supported with biased evidence and inaccurate data, and it takes me AGES to explain where they are wrong. And only then do they bugger off...

It was easier in teh old days...
