Re: Death to advertisers!

How about showing the same ads to everyone, like what happened in paper-based publications, with the ads targeted based on the content of the site. That actually made more money and delivered more relevant ads than the current system.

It may be hard to believe, but 20+ years ago, people actually bought newspapers to read the ads.
