And that's why you should always use Adblock Plus.

I'm usually against AdBlock.. but it's starting to irritate me anymore. Not the 30 second Ads.. I can deal with those. No, anymore, I keep getting 2.5 minute long adds. Makes me want to scream.

Why would you be against AdBlock ?

Many websites depend on revenue from the ads. I turn my ABP off* when browsing certain sites to help support them.

*At least, when I remember to.

I do that too, if I think the website deserves the money.

But no reason to be against Adblocking in general, especially for sites like YouTube and Facebook that are gonna make a ♥♥♥♥ load of money any ways.

Youtube, specifically VEVO hosted music videos. They tend to sneak in 2.5 minute longs ads every now and then.

Already been answered, all the websites I visit are ad supported. Including YT, which is owned by google, which almost all their revenue comes from Ad support.

I'm just asuming here (cba googling for stats), but most people using ad blockers probably just leave them on all the time.

Totally agree with you on YouTube. Even though I have an account, the ads are just too much there.
