Really not in my part of the world - it is like night and day when I use my PC hosts edit. No more redirects, popups, ads popuups that has potential to lead to virus/malware infection that to me improves user USER EXPERIENCES. Even my family member tells me were finally rid of those useless popups and ads blocking what were trying to do. Looks like more IN THE BOX thinking from Google guess the will never learn.

“The real problem is that ad blockers throw out the baby with the bathwater”, according to Ramaswamy. “They make monetization impossible for a whole slew of people.”

Really so where is my paycheck for letting you waste my bandwidth with useless junk??? Still waiting for those payments???

That’s not the only reason people use ad blockers. Many ads track the users, even when the user has DoNotTrack enabled in their browsers. The advertising industry needs to keep privacy in mind when displaying ads. As Mozilla’s Chief Legal and Business Officer, Denelle Dixon-Thayer has recently said, “[…]users start to mistrust the entire system—including the good actors.”

I think “The popularity of adblockers is caused by annoying advertisements that provide a terrible user experience” is actually pretty close to the truth, most people probably use an ad blocker because there are many terrible sites out there that make the user experience a poor one, whether it’s load time, popups, covering the entire screen with ads, misleading ads, too many ads, or whatever.

Those sites then make it difficult for the sites trying to be sensible with their ads, I’m sure Myce is one of those that relies on ads that is affected by this issue.

I would say on the whole it’s the larger or company owned sites that tend to go totally overboard with the ads and junk they serve, the medium or smaller sites (like this one) do try to be more sensible because every user counts and they can’t afford to lose visitors/readers.

But even then un-savvy users will be turned away…as well.
