blocking ads is a good thing
Authored by: baba on Sep 16, '03 04:33:57PM
I'm not sure using a stylesheet is the best solution, but if it blocks ads the user does not want to see, that's a good thing. Trying to force ads on users who explicitly don't want to see them is pointless and serves only to cultivate an adversarial atmosphere. Often overlooked is the possibility that a certain user who generally does not want to see ads may indeed want to see them at, say, a certain geek site that has established its goodwill by serving only small static ads for relevant goods or services. My beef with most browsers is that they refuse to offer this flexibility. Hence, to my mind, Mozilla is Netscape is IE is Safari is Camino is OmniWeb and so on.

Like a weblink or a filter?
