I turn off Adblock on most sites. However, on N4G, the ads attack you. They're coming to your house, lol. I particularly hate with great intensity the ads that play in the background yet can't be seen. Drives me cRRRRAAZzzy. Then I turn on Adblock.

What do you do?

Eonjay1674d ago (Edited 1674d ago )

I can't bring myself to watch the same ad over and over again. I don't like ads. That is just me. But it is the shameless data collection without your express permission that inspired me to run AdBlock. After running it for a week, it had block nearly 10k ads, most of which aren't ads, but tracking sites.

"I can't bring myself to watch the same ad over and over again." Lol, you and me both. I die a little inside watching it over and over again. However, like Patcher said, I just walk away and come back when I'm at home. I can't do that on my iPhone though.

"But it is the shameless data collection without your express permission that inspired me to run AdBlock." I gave up that fight, lol. I purposely give out as much data on myself, even on Social Media, as acceptable because privacy is dead, in my opinion, as long as I'm on the internet and I love the information the internet delivers.

"After running it for a week, it had block nearly 10k ads, most of which aren't ads, but tracking sites." That's cool. How do you check that?

Don't mind banner ads, but popups and autoplay ads are so annoying. Lol scumbags.

ajax171674d ago

Yeah, I have to agree. Sorry Newsboiler, these ads are terrible.

iamnsuperman1674d ago (Edited 1674d ago )

I am a scum-bag then. I get your point Pachter and you are right I just hate ads being in your face (background audio ads are the worse though). I would much rather prefer subscribing to things if it means no ads and I get good content. I do that with Matt Lees and I do that (although compulsory) with the BBC (though I would pay for it if it was optional). The thing I notice about ad revenue content is the content isn't always that good (Gametrailers is fairly hit and miss: actually I don't go there since they got rid of invisible walls and instead went for some unsteady camera style show which is fairly poor). By having subscribers the content makes have to be good all the time.

Edit: like Eonjay said watching the same add over and over again (something that is a problem with websites and not tv channels) gets incredibly frustrating and boring.

AKissFromDaddy1674d ago

Agreed with everything you wrote. Nevertheless, whom or what company would you pay a small subscription fee too? I can't think of any because I rather watch ads than pay money.

"watching the same add over and over again (something that is a problem with websites and not tv channels) gets incredibly frustrating and boring." Agreed. Additionally, the ads suck. They're seriously not even meant for me. Just to check, there's UPS and Gatorade Ad and I think,"Why?"

Pachter is scared of Jim Sterling, confirmed.

modesign1674d ago

lol that loser must not watch tv since he probably cant stand teh commercials.

CerealKiller1674d ago

I never use Adblock. I should use it for this site because the ads always freeze up my browser.
