"I'm not advocating it (online ads), I hate it, but you do realise that you are getting all of this site content for free. You blocking an ad costs the site money, they can only sell an ad when it is served. You're looking down the wrong end of the telescope."

It depends on the site. It's not a one size fits all dilemma. Many site themselves are an "advert" for the company.
