UK carrier Three in network-wide ad-block shock

Re: Block three

Love to hear your reasoning how blocking ads is illegal. Unless they receive money from the advertisers direct why should they waste bandwidth and people's time showing them?

AdBlock Plus, websites draft peace deal so ads can bypass blockade

TechnoTechno

What ad companies consider acceptable and what nornal people who havent spent the last 5 years with their head up their arses consider acceptable I have a feeling are poles apart.

It's utter crap

Not to mention the connection in the bag is utter tripe - Ours was "professionally" fitted by some slack jawed nob head whilst I was at work. The attenuator isn't even held in with anything, nor is the pin on the inside actually physically connnected to the board, it just lies there against a tiny contact pad. The thing fell off and VM wont replace it depsite it being utter crap.
