If you're going to block ads, you should only use sites that you pay for with a subscription or some other fee system.

Unfortunately, there are far too many mis-behaved ads and that's one thing Google is trying to get rid of.
How can you say I should open ads on sites, and on the same breath accent the fact that ads mis-behave?

Until sites stop using ads sites that include sounds, flashy ads, pop ups, covering scripts that send you to shady sites, malware, etc, I will block ads everywhere.
I can't just guess which site is fine or not, and which site is basically using 80% ads, 15% malware, 5% content.

Sites and ad vendors screwed themselves up with what they did.
