HolyGod: so if ads are everywhere and nobody likes them, and people get a chance to remove them, they will jump at it and remove them. ads, as they are today, dont have a good future. no doubt the internet will change when everyone is blocking ads.. but you say it will be worse.. and i think it will be better. imho its stupid to watch ads being forced on you, and act like its their right to do so to you, when you dont like them.. especially when there are simple ways to prevent them from ever reaching your eyes

"HolyGod: so does that mean you're not going to put up a blog to ask what people think is the most annoying thing on the internet?"
Don`t need to. I don`t dispute that the answer is ads. Just like the most annoying thing about TV is ads. Just like the most annoying thing about newspapers is ads. Just like the most annoying thing about radio is ads. Just like the most annoying thing about magazines is ads.
I have DVR and OnDemand, so I rarely see a TV ad. However most people still see the ads. If everyone used DVR and skipped the ads then advertisers would stop advertising. If advertisers stopped paying stations they couldn`t pay networks who in turn couldn`t pay show developers who then couldn`t pay actors, writers, stylists, reporters, etc. Free TV would disappear. If you wanted to watch CBS or NBC you`d have to pay for it like it was HBO.
The Internet as we know it would not exist without ads, even if they annoy you.
