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


If people want me to pay them for producing their content, they can either throw up a paywall or put their content in a medium that's not readily and "freely" accessible, such as a magazine or a physical storage device, such as a CD. I'm not having ads bog down my connections and waste what little data plan I'm able to pay for just so someone else can make money off of my misfortune. If I want to pay twice just to access a website, then I'll choose to pay twice.

P.S. That "crazy amount of connection" you refer to? It's not even considered broadband by most industry standards. You think I chose to live here? I'm literally not allowed to leave, except to go to work. So stuff your "parasite" argument firmly where it belongs.
