I remember the time I got called a communist for using an adblocker. Oh how I laughed
But how are you going to know what to buy without ads? Don't you know that your greatest quality is your consumption.
@LibertyPaulM was it meant as a complement?
@HexDSL it really wasn’t, it was the scornful use of the word
@LibertyPaulM lol... Communism. I don't understand the world
But the majority of the time, the free content isn't worth looking at anyways & theres too much of it & if we valued it more, savoured & enjoyed it, perhaps we'd be prepared to fund it in small sustainable & manageable amounts?
We need a new model with ethical incentives!
You Adblocker Communists! ;)
@LibertyPaulM When people talk of Capitalism, I just say I'm not a Marxist, so I'm not using 19th Century Philosophical terms to describe silicon-centric, 21st Century economics.
@spelk I liked the notion of in-browser mining: when you go to a site you can turn off ad-blockers and it mines in your browser, creating tiny amounts of cash for the hoster. Whatever support model we choose has to be simple, or it's not happening.
