War is never the solution
An email I got:
I think if people run an ad blocker they shouldn’t see any ads, that’s the point. It’s not them being rude, it’s them reacting to there being so many awful, overwhelming ads on websites. What would be rude is for front end developers to disrespect that wish and force ads anyway.
Starting a war of front end developers trying to fight ad blockers and ad blockers trying to fight front end developers isn’t the solution. The solution is for websites to be more tasteful with ads and so that users aren’t driven to ad blockers out of frustration.
