Slashdot had an article today asking people to comment on why they block ads. I don’t block Internet ads.
Part of the reason is that I’ve just never gotten around to installing AdBlock even though I hate it when simple Flash banner ads bring my Firefox to a crawl.
The other part of the reason is because I want to support the sites I visit, and as a cheap jerk, I don’t want to have to shell money out of my own pocket to support them.
I also find ads useful sometimes. Oddly enough, even though I love Google, I’ve never found their text ads helpful, interesting, or even relevant! Often times they’re just funny.
