Hear, hear! Charlie.

I'd add some additional coloration to the problem. Billboards certainly don't block the road. Yet, in many cases, adverts on sites do this routinely.

Also, a billboard doesn't ambush you five miles down the road, having secretly used an exploit to leave behind a fleet of spies and malware that car-jacks you, then forces your vehicle off the main highway and down some hillbilly dead-end road leading to a small town with in-breds running the police, jail and banks.

If the sites stopped selecting adverts that attempt to use these software and OS exploits and behaved with any modicum of decency and honesty, then people might just not need the #%$!#@ ad-blockers.Mad | :mad:

Until then, any site that demands I turn off ad-blocking software will never see me again.
The madman is not the man who has lost his reason; the madman is the man who has lost everything except his reason.

--G.K. Chesterton
