Ads suck, no doubt about it, but using an ad blocker to bypass them not only makes advertisers lose billions of dollars in revenue every year, but also threatens pulling their ads from sites, rendering them inert. Not viewing these ads is like not paying the fare to view the content, and this actually constitutes theft, although in this day and age, it's totally impossible to enforce. Still, when using an ad blocker, keep in mind that you're hurting the site your freely viewing content from, and not the evil advertising corporations that inconvenience you so much with their ads.

FactAd blocking is most prominent in Austarlia, where 22.5 percent of Internet users block ads.
