Here is a nice confrontation to report.
The ubiquitous use of ads on computers slows down their ability to operate efficiently, apart from being offensive to the brain of anything above an amoeba. Consequently, ad-blocking software grew by 41% last year to the consternation of the $50 billion advertising industry. A spokesperson for The Interactive Advertising Bureau had the unmitigated gall to describe the ad blockers as, "...an unethical, immoral, mendacious coven of techie wannabes." and called the ad blockers action as 'extortion'.
Presumable, he said this with tongue in cheek!
