Help me solve this conundrum (Firefox/AdBlock/NoScript)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I use Firefox with the AdBlock Plus and NoScript extensions.

Thing is, I also want to support sites such as OCN which I understand depend on ad revenue.

So I give AdBlock the green light on OCN, but NoScript is still blocking the ad servers.

Until today, my thought was that there was no way I was going to allow the ad servers through NoScript because I simply don't trust them, and unblocking them in NoScript for the sake of OCN means letting ads load on every other site I go to that uses the same ad servers.

That meant no revenue from my page views for OCN, but I do value my privacy and computer security.

However, I just had an epiphany and looked at the problem from the opposite point of view: if I allow the ad servers used by OCN, and continue to disable AdBlock Plus on OCN like I've been doing, then OCN is getting their well-deserved money, and AdBlock Plus will still continue to block ads on other sites without security issues. So my problem is solved, right?

I just wanted to get you guys in on the question to double check I'm approaching this from the right angle.

That's one reason why I like Opera. It has built-in content blocking which can easily be enabled or disabled for individual sites.
