    The Google Play issue was covered in the below thread.

    As long as the Web exists and other media exists, advertising as revenue, is a required. A known business model.

    You can opt out of it, depending on media in which you refer.

    PCMag, relies heavily on third party content for revenue as do most websites.

    What you think about Dvorak's suggestions? Such as this one:

    "...There has to be a better way and I believe the better way is the original way. Keep ads separate from content. And make them compelling..."

    No web-based ad that I've ever witnessed was compelling unless I was shopping for a vacation or a new car, etc.
    In that event, I would reduce my Browser settings to see those. On a day to day basis, I have no need for them, nor would I wish to provide the third party provider of those services any click-thru revenue based on my surfing habits.

    I page full of ads? I'd like that, I'd never go there.

    Maybe that page would be interesting whenever you want to buy something. Of course, the ads would need to be cataloged... like in the old times.

    I for one really appreciate this new old idea instead of the current abusive mess.

    The current "mess" is a solved problem...

    Install an ad blocker, let the chips fall where they may.

    And end up where we are now, with ads being at their most annoying ever, and the ad industry coming as close as they dare to threatening users into viewing said ads. Blocking is going to become increasingly ineffective, you mark my words. It's not the solution, but it's a necessity for as long as the ad industry is practically saying "F you" to anyone who tries to compromise or negotiate with them.
