    Right. It's the job of people who *do* understand this stuff, like us, to make sure companies don't make this behavior commonplace.

    I want, you know, medical people to be watching out for dangerous and harmful food additives or whatever that I don't understand. It's my duty to repay that vigilance in the tech sector where I can.

    No, it's not the user's fault they're not blocking ads. I want to browse the web seeing who's advertising what where, and I want to support sites I value by visiting and maybe patronizing their sponsors.

    Exactly how do you expect to get quality information for free if sites aren't able to make money with advertising?

    Ad blockers encourage *more* invasive, intrusive, and insidious forms of ads. Like, the subject of this story.

    I say boycot ad blockers. They're making internet ads worse.
