    thats the reason i block ads from mmo-c. i got those often, all of it is clickable and takes you to the rift webpage. No thank you.
    This was the reason why I originally started using Adblock. I enjoyed my MMO-C front page and then one day 60% of it was advertisement. No thank you.

    You can customize ad-block plus and choose which sites to filter. Want to support youtubers? Disable it for youtube. That's what I do.

    Wait, i thought ads only actually generated money when someone clicked or actively interacted with them?

    In all honesty I am surprised it's so low myself I literally spend all my free time at the computer but I guess I don't visit so many sites that hammer the ads out. Twitch, MMO-C and a couple of well trusted sites keep the count relatively low i guess.

    Make your ads less intrusive and annoying and I will have no reason to block them. This is as simple as it gets for me, I don't particularly care if a company is suffering from it. As far as I'm concerned if you want my support then you should go about it in a way that I find interesting or at the very least, not try to force it on me. It's like when protesters use their right to protest and completely shut down busy streets with their parading and then go on to complain that the people they're "fighting for" don't support them enough. It could be a cause I completely believe in, still doesn't matter. If you in any way unnecessarily inhibit my ability to get from point A to point B in the manner of my choosing when I choose, you can bugger off.

    The concept of trying to force someone to do/accept something will change if enough people go against it.

    lol

    i think a lot of mine is because i usually have a few tabs of mmo-c open, each one blocking 5-10ads and i refresh them quite often, plus youtube on and a few other sites.
    im actually surprised how many i blocked really.

    I didn't see any arguments that were convincing enough to even give me a second of pause to think about not using it.

    I was shocked to hear that someone even made 10k a year playing games while people watch....Who are these people whose lives are so bland they watch someone else playing a game? That's another story though.


    I use 3 different ad blocking software suites, 2 windows one on my linux box. I've had a DVR since the 3rd day they were available. I record every single thing before I watch it, while doing yardwork, working out, fishing etc. I can't recall seeing an ad online or on tv in over 3 years. I guess I lied, 13 saturdays a year I see them during college football season.

    I don't feel a bit bad about it and never will.
    Apply blizzards model to any other subscription service,you'd be outraged:
    Netflix adds no new movies for a year, you click a new movie, there's a $5 fee.
    You're in an accident, click your onstar button, but there's an addition $20 fee for them to help.
    You turn on your tv only to find all you get are the infomercial channels. Every other show is pay per view.
    See how dumb that model is?

    Blocked 202k ads in the past 6 months and I really don't give a damn, I'd happily pay to sponsor the smaller companies and website for their content I enjoy, but for larger companies like YouTube that force ads down your throat can get lost.

    Tier gear should be available during the leveling process. I don't want to have to mingle with these eltitist jerks in LFR to get gear as it is. I pay a sub fee, I shouldn't have to do LFR to get raid gear, much less Flex or Normal.

    You are correct, click-throughs are where the money is (1-2 cents each on a good day), and probably close to 100% of people using adblock were never going to click one anyways, I see no problem.

    I think it varies. Ads on Youtube and Twitch are per view as far as I know.

    Some streamers are just genuinely entertaining and engage with their audience also. I mentioned manvsgame in a previous post the guys awesome just a pure video game enthusiast that loves everything and enjoys sharing it with others I can't rate the guy highly enough.

    But with that said the fact that someone like towlie cant support his family because he is not earning $50k a year via advertisements? yea my heart bleeds..

    The day when advertising on websites becomes unobtrusive is the day I disable adblock, in other words, when hell freezes over. I they didn't bother me then I wouldn't use it in the first place.

    Pay for my internet and I'll think about it.

    91255 blocked and many more to come, actually... what does that tell you?

    If a streamer relies on ads, they need to evolve or go out of business.
