Some pretty big holes here:
This appears from a report by Gladly, the company behind the adblocker Goodblock.
Notice they don't have a link to the company supporting this? Odd don't you think ... :Z
Now for the holes:
This is why we built our own ad blocker, Goodblock, which not only blocks ads but also allows users to opt-in to a few enjoyable ads each day. If they do, those ads raise money for charity.
What charity are they talking about?
We surveyed Goodblock users to gain a deeper insight into ad blocking usersâ€™ behavior and attitude toward online advertising.
Notice how selective this insight is?
About 80% of Goodblock users reported feeling some level of guilt around blocking ads. This high percentage runs contrary to the stereotypes associated with ad blocking users.
Really, and whom where these bots that you asked the same question?
This story is no longer valid with the vast majority of ad blocking users fully understanding the consequences of ad blocking, and feeling torn about it.
In your small world thinking sure but in the wider world that is a big "NOT". Get shafted enough times and users will ad block.
We also found the most cited reason for downloading an ad blocker was that a few sites had particularly annoying ads, and a common sentiment toward online advertising was that the ads are fine, but there are simply too many of them.
Really...it took this long to figure that out.... :Z
these sentiments and high percentage of whitelisting show that users arenâ€™t necessarily against all online ads
That couldn't be farther from the truth - online ads just ^&&^*&^ is that clear enough.
they are simply using ad blockers as a tool to improve their user experience.
If life was so simple... not
there was a large group of users (30%) who expressed anger when the content was completely blocked.
How about raise that to 100%
From our perspective, this report shows that ad blocking is a much more nuanced phenomenon than many have assumed.
This is what I call In-the-box thinking. Nothing new here.
the majority of ad blocking users are not downloading ad blockers to remove online advertising completely, but rather to fix user-experience problems on a subset of websites with particularly annoying ads.
What world are they living in?
and this can only be done by focusing on the user first.
something that was lost long time ago and trust no longer can be bought
All in all this fake Report was all that Fake.....
I can atest in the start of the internet age is was a world of knowledge and exploration but as adware became more and more intrusive all this went out the Windows(pun). I was happy to have found my PC hosts edit file and with that I could again enjoy the internet I paid for since those adware didn't pay to block my internet experience.
