Re: Not this guy again
"Which is not only stupid because it's obviously nothing most of us (and probably not even you) would want to, ie. if we'd have to pay $5-10 for every single website we use and visit, every month, so we can access them, but also because in order to pay with a credit card or other means you'd have to give up even more personal (and more personally identifying info) than what any adblock detector technology would possibly collect."
Maybe this isnt such a bad thing for society as a whole?? If we spent less time on the internet reading pointless bulshit and lies then the world might be a better place? Half the tripe on the internet wouldnt exist as nobody actually wants it. If what I viewed online had to be paid for then maybe three or four sites would get some money. Stack Overflow, elReg, Code Project maybe one or two others. If I didnt waste so much of my life on other online shit then maybe I would go outside, lose some weight, spend more time with friends and family. The benefit of all of that seems to outwiegh the £30 a month for content I acutally want that will benefit my life. Obviously never going to happen but meh whatever, musings of an old fart that remembers days before the internet.
In the begining the internet was a great idea, the whole free exchange of ideas and knowledge thing, but unfortunately capitalism got hold of it.
