Same here

Enabling Adblocking,,stopping Javascript, adding more than 3000 entries to the hosts file and nuking FLASH is SOP for me and many other like minded people I know.

As a certified Grumpy Old Man, I never:-

- Buy anything advertised to me on TV. most of the time I skip the Ads anyway because they are not relevant to me in any way shape or form.

- Go to any site more than once that detects the present of Adblock and tells me to disable it.otherwise they won't let me see the content.

- Answer ANY unsolicited telephone marketing/survey phone calls.

- etc.

- etc

I do however subscribe/contribute to a few sites in lieu of the revenue loss from me blocking the ads.

And yes, I did once work for an Ad agency (shame on me)
