Forgive me, father, for I have used an ad-blocker on news websites...

I'll stop blocking ads when...

I'll stop blocking when

a) you stop using jquery and nodejs and other monolithic mega-scripting in your ads

b) you stop using script *PERIOD* in your ads

c) you stop using COOKIES to TRACK me (in your ads and elsewhere including invisible GIF)

d) you stop using ANYTHING to TRACK me.

e) you stop using FLASH or POPUPS or CLICK THROUGH or any *OTHER* video or active/moving content, particularly content that requires USER ACTION to MAKE IT GO AWAY.

At that point, ads will be simple banners. They're not irritating. I won't block them.
