The case for ethical ad-blocking

Re: View from inside

This I absolutely agree with, despite the fact that it would be an exception to the rule. For instance, if you subscribe to the Guardian Newspaper (and get it delivered) you still get the ads! If you subscribe to a magazine, you still get the ads. However, the digital world is different - and it would be very easy to block ads for logged in subscribers to a site. Trivially easy.

Slight correction: there doesn't need to be a click for an advertiser to pay the site. The site gets paid every time an ad is served (shown).So, if you block the ad, the site loses that income.
