To every site out there asking me to whitelist them from my adblocker: No.

I'm not blocking your ads because I hate ads. Ads pay my salary and support content creators on the internet.

I'm blocking your ads because you're using nine different advertising companies on your site and they're slowing you down.

I'm blocking your ads because the less reputable of those advertisers have high latency connections that make web pages run slower.

I'm blocking your ads because the less reputable ad sites also contain malware that can do bad things to my machine.

I'm blocking your ads because you've decided to present a splash screen that interrupts reading your content, and sometimes isn't even dismissable.

I'm blocking your ads because they refresh after 30 seconds forcing a page refresh that reloads the page I'm reading and loses state so I have to find where I am on your site.

I'm blocking your ads because they're so bloated that your mobile page now takes ten seconds to load.

I'm blocking your ads because you're still trying to do pop ups.

I'm blocking your ads because they're redirecting me to other sites away from the content I want.

I'm blocking your ads because you're making them look like content in an attempt to get people to click on them.

I'm blocking your ads because you're using clickbait headlines to try and grab my attention and they are blatantly misleading.

I'm blocking your ads because your targeting is so far off that it's irrelevant.

I'm blocking your ads occasionally because I'm a paid subscriber to your site and you still feel the need to make me look at them.

When your ads become relevant, fast, useful, not malicious, not graphically intensive and helpful, I'll gladly add your site to my adblocking whitelist. I'm not averse to paying for content. I'm not averse to supporting content creators and journalists. I'm averse to bad user experiences. And that's all.

This is getting bad, on one hand the news show that more cases of requests to stop use of the words "climate change". On the other hand scientists group leaders are willing to go a head with the change to guarantee their financial support from the USGov.

A new record prize pool on esports tournaments. The International is still a month to go and the prize pool can still go higher. Great for esports in general, great for Dota 2 in particular.

I do love the concept, the sad part is, it will take a long time to have this working on a wide range of devices so we could easily convince our clients to consider it.
