More and more Brits are using ad-blockers, says survey

I regularly encounter websites that encourage me to disable my adblocker... Some sites won't even let you in any longer. Forbes I'm calling you out! As I work on a Corporate LAN, there is a big fat content filter sitting just behind the firewall, as a test I tried with a computer that had no adblocker, and got the same nice page saying "unless you turn off your adblocker, you can't view our site" Do the "admins" at these places even think? Or look inside their own server room/farm/center?

Gee, Joe, do you think if we have a content filter, that others might too? naah, couldn't be... it's all gotta be browser based adblockers... keep putting up the banners
