I remember when I started having ads on my site, commenters would tell me that it was fine because they have adblock plus, completely oblivious, or just not giving a fuck, that I needed ads on my site because my server expenses were getting far more expensive than I could pocket for a hobby. Like ads or not, they make a lot of things on the internet free for our use. This whole idea that everything should be free without even having to look at an advertisement is silly and not based in reality:
Adblock Plus will now sell ads. Yes, you heard it right. Adblock Plus is launching an ad exchange service to replace the bad ads (which are too big, too ugly, or too intrusive) with good ads which are less annoying.
Eyeo has partnered with ad tech platform to create an automated ad marketplace. Publishers can sell ad space on their web pages and place code to put ads. The 80 percent of the revenue from these ads will go to publishers. Remaining 20% will be divided between various other parties involved with serving the ads. Adblock plus will receive 6% from serving ads.

Glad to see the GOP’s basket of deplorables making HRC’s case for her:
Louisiana Senate candidate and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke says he’s pleased that vice presidential nominee Mike Pence declined to call him “deplorable” in an interview on Monday.
“It’s good to see an individual like Pence and others start to reject this absolute controlled media,” Duke told BuzzFeed News. “The truth is that the Republican Party in Louisiana — I received the vast majority of Republican votes for United States senator before and for governor before that in my state. The truth is the Republican Party is big tent. I served in the Republican caucus. I was in the Republican caucus in the legislature. I had a perfect Republican voting record. It’s ridiculous that they attack me because of my involvement in that nonviolent Klan four decades ago.”
A lot of people are talking about how these tremendous slippers are the best slippers that you can get. All the other slippers are losers, are weak, and are boring loser slippers. I can unequivocally say that if bought these will be the most tremendous, fantastic slippers put on your feet. Just the other day I was talking to a guy, smart guy too, and he made a lot of money, and he told me that these slippers are just fantastic. People tell me this all the time. So trust me.
