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.
No, it would make me a constructive critic. I'm telling these deluded people that their advertising is counterproductive. If they could do their advertising in a way that pleases people then it would be more effective and their business would improve. At the moment the earnings from ads is falling and I believe it is because of their approach.
Using an ugly word like "parasite" sounds like an attempt to inflame. At the very least it's sanctimonious. And very wrong.
