Re: as the AC who made the parasite comment

"But if I want to consume the content of advertising supported sites without seeing the damn advertising that makes me a parasite. Arguably if you claim that you hate advertising, but visit sites that rely on advertising to make money then that makes you a hypocrite too."

Don't want mosquitos? Throw up a screen. If not enough wish to click through your ad wall, then perhaps your content is not worth keeping on the Web. Either pony up yourself or go away.

Perhaps if more people start calling out, "Stop the Internet! I want to get off!" and go back to Time Magazine and the Sears catalog, attrition will finally start seeing the Internet cleaned up...
