FYI - banner blockers have been around since long before pops even existed. I remember still the outrage when the first site put up banner ads and turned the internet into (horrors) a commercial medium. I think it was that did it.

I can see a justification for pop-up blocking ... But, blocking banners and text ads? Going too far.
And this is for you to decide? Universally? For everyone?

Or should the publisher be allowed to decide for themself what ads they want to display and what they want to do with viewers who refuse their ads?

Or should the viewer be allowed to decide what they want to allow on the computer that they paid for when they're using the internet service that they paid for?
