Katie Benner and Sydney Ember, reporting for the NYT:
The potential toll of ad blocking has become particularly apparent
over the last few days, when several website publishers got caught
in the dragnet after Apple enabled ad-blocking apps. John Gruber,
a technology blogger who publishes on his site Daring Fireball,
posted on Twitter that “it’s wrong” if an ad blocker stops all
types of ads.
“The ad network I’m a part of, The Deck, only serves ads that are
fast to load and don’t track you,” Mr. Gruber said. “In my
opinion, they’re good-looking ads for high-quality products and
services. Why block that?”
Are we fighting ads, or are we fighting garbage?
