Re: Message to advertisers

"I block ads because I don't want to see them"

I block ads because they got intrusive. I keep blocking them because they've gotten moreso over the years.

Just like spammers, marketers think the solution to fewer people clicking on adverts is "MORE ADVERTS!" and if more people are clicking on the ads, then "SELL MORE ADVERTS!"

It's the tragedy of the commons writ large.
