The report was released by PageFair, a company that aims to “re-establish a fair deal between users and content creators”…
Good. It’s about time we all got a fair deal, as opposed to publishers pushing unethical ads on every visitor who ventures into a given website.

…by offering websites advertisements that it claims adblockers can’t circumvent.
Oh, come on! That’s not a “fair deal”, that’s forcing unwanted ads down the visitors’ throats. How about “we make ads so good, the users won’t mind seeing them, and therefore won’t see any need to block them. Our ads are not overly flashy or annoying, they don’t make the users’ devices scream ‘congratulations, you won!’ at inappropriate times, and they don’t slow everything to a crawl, they don’t popup, they don’t cover important parts of webpages, they don’t come with fake ‘close’ buttons, and above all, no spying on the users. They’re just simple banners. No browser plugins, no excessive amount of javascript, and no risk of drive-by downloads” Is that too much to ask?

If I can’t get my web browser to block a website’s adds, I won’t visit that website unless the ads come from the same server as the web site (no Google ads, no Amazon ads, no Taboola ads, etc.), and said ads don’t slow my machine down too much. If these kinds of ads are forced on me, I’m not going to that website again.
