Fighting Ad Blockers

from the the-war-moves-on dept

This is an amusing story (to me at least): ad blockers have become increasingly popular, though I still think there’s only a limited market for them, as most people don’t care enough either way to actually go through the process of getting and installing an ad blocker. Most folks are content to just ignore ads. However, there have been plenty of stories recently about companies fearing the “threat” that ad blockers put forth. In response, apparently, a company called Mind’s Eye Fiction, has created a system that won’t let you access their content if they determine you are using an ad blocker. So, it’s basically, an ad blocker blocker. Now, I’m just waiting for the ad blocker blocker blocker!
