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


The point of the article is idiotic, as an entire market has sprung up in response to the ads that constantly ruin the experience of those who browse the internet. So those of us who pay hilarious amounts of money for small data plans want those small data plans to last for the month, and we do NOT want those data plans wasted by automatically-loading and loud videos, flashing graphics suddenly appearing and dancing right in front of what I was just reading, and pointless, malware-infested advertisements bothering my antivirus. I pay for access to the internet, I experience the internet how I choose; therefore, I pay for the internet.
