If websites want to show ads it should be subtle and people wont be annoyed and wont block their ads, Simple as that. BTW gsmarena is the first website I intentionally disabled adblocker on for the simple reason that their ads don't punch me straight in the face instead just sit there on the side of article and if I want to I can open it.
GSMArena you're doing a good job with ads, hopefully other websites follows this suit to make internet a beautiful place otherwise we'll have to use adblockers to make it beautiful.
Yes, I dont hate adds. They are good. Only i hate is pop up. So i uninstalled addblock and installed a popup controller for mozilla.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2016wow, you've been heavilly brainwashed. You can't "steal" something without taking it away from... moreTechnically, web pages need to pay for hosting, bandwidth, programmers and writers. If you are blocking ads, you enjoy their work for free and they can't make money from it. So it's more like taking some iPhones or Galaxies from a transport truck and giving them away for free and then saying "It's not stealing if I don't make money from it".
I don't think Adblock created problem.
The problem was created by developers with their annoying popups, redirections and other adforcing techniques.
I use Adblock, yet I have disabled on many sites I visit (including this one).
Respect your visitors and they will respect you.
World Wide Web is a virtual place and it's already contaminated with nasty ads. Imagine in real life every step u take is filled with ads. There is actually movie about this "Branded"
Like every step u take someone would offer u something to buy or see advertisements etc. Advertisement has gonna out of control today
they figured out how to make more money by not doing the one thing they do to make money....
[deleted post]wow, you've been heavilly brainwashed. You can't "steal" something without taking it away from someone. It's like saying it's a theft to just not but a Galaxy or an iPhone.
This... uhh... defeats the purpose. What's next?
End user need to pay premium to block the ads those premium publishers pay to publish????
And the cycle goes on and on.
Adaway is a great Android alternative baked into many vision roms. It updates your host file and that's that. Doesn't have to run in the background constantly like many other options.
And comes the downfall of Adblock. Why on earth would I use an ad blocking program that profits off of showing me ads? That makes zero sense.
Ha! So it's no longer an adblock, just another adware blocking other adwares..
Then..they probably should rename it as Adblock Minus or AdAllow
