[MaximumPC] Popular AdBlock Plus Extension to Allow "Non-Invasive" Ads by Default - Page 3

post #21 of 104
Text ads (like the ones in google) fine with, flash ads however, no thanks, remember browsing in IE once, visited a site, didn't click on anything, flash add popped up and give me a virus lol.

It depends what they mean by "non-invasive" ads in my opinion, if it's not animated (Or only in a tasteful, non-flashing way) just showing the product then sure, I can live with that.

MSN has some of the most invasive rude ads I have ever seen.

One car ad in particular, you start reading an article and the text from the article starts getting "sucked" into the ad on the right...Others pop-up infront of the article and you need to hunt the X to close the damn things, I find it extremely rude. I don't use ad-block anymore but I just might with this new feature.

I have been using Ghostery for a few weeks now and it seems to block more stuff than Adblock so i will never use this again.

I don't mind some ads but the it seems a lot make the site load slower "waiting for request from ad.doubleclick.net" for example was the reason i used a adblock in the first place. But it is just the default setting so it can always be changed.

Ad block was installed mainly for pop-ups/anti-malware purposes.

Also on my mobile devices as ads eat a lot of battery juice and processing time, making them slower than they should be.

If the ads aren't something I Googled ten seconds ago to find out what it was than sure, I can't stand "relative ads". I'm on a computer site... You just popped up an ad to get me to buy anti-physicist bacon cream... ***

I usually click on interesting new parts that I see audio or computer wise, because I know it bring revenue, and I can learn about a new product.

Opt-out of this then and adblock plus will work as normal. Problem solved. Anyone tech savvy enough to have insalled Adblock Plus in the first place should know how to disable this.

I get that some of you have a moral issue with this but IMO, until Adblock Plus actually prevents you from blocking these ads then it's not that big of a deal.

This defeats the purpose of an adblocker. I hate advertisements with a passion. It seems to me the whole world is a huge freaking shopping mall with nothing but ads, commercials to buy their crap, and a bunch of stupid marketing babble. If I want something I'll go and buy it. Slamming fifty ads in my face on every webpage I go to is not going to convince me to buy. Ever. rolleyes.gif
