Again, wrong analogy. Example below.
The newspaper company printed 1 newspaper, and sold 1 newspaper. Its irrelevant what happens to it after. The cost for creating the newspaper was paid for.
If you go to my site and download 1 page without adblock. I had to use resources to generate that 1 page, but you didn't view an ad, my costs were not paid for.
Your also showcasing how peer 2 peer works vs a client to dedicated server model.

NoScript and other script blocking add-ons do the same thing as AdBlocking add-ons do. The point is that you can't force all of the people accessing your content to see ads, just like with TV.
Frankly the only issue sites should have is the percent of people using ad-blocking. If the number is fairly fixed, the sites can simply improve their services and get more views.
Websites have all the leverage, if they really feel like they're getting ripped off, put everything behind a paywall... But most won't do this because they know what they provide isn't worth the trouble of people typing in their credit card information. Block all ad-blockers? There are add-ons and Greasemonkey scripts that block adblock blockers.
I think it's a fool's notion that 100% of your page views can be monetized. What the hell is every 100% efficient?
The number is not fairly fixed. Last time I had stats from a clients site it was that 35% of all user traffic would not load ad traffic. That means 35% for that particular niche used some form of adblock. Give or take 5% error for maybe bad page loads.
100% and 65% are no where close to each other.
Keep in mind, this is only going to increase. Its not like people are choosing to willingly stop using ad block after using it.Edited by Limes - 2/9/16 at 6:01pm
