    Why not? I don't want an ad free world (communism?), I just don't want them to bother me too much (hoping to get rid of them while browsing and watching telly).

    Hi! I'm Chimpy and I'm an AdBlockic.

    Good for adblock but not good for us. Websites still need to make money and once all adds are blocked they will find different ways to force them on us.

    Well, I would like an ad free world. And yes, websites will find ways to take money from the users, but I don't think they actually want to find out who is really willing to pay for their services :)

    Exactly !!!

    I to would like a spam-free World !
    (Yes, I consider all advertizing that is forced on me 'spam' ..
    If website-owners want to make money they need to offer something that is worth money - Or get a real job like the rest of us !)

    I know it will go offtopic, but I can't resist asking this.

    How did you relate an ad-free world to communisim?
