if you had a problem in the initial days, you could send a Eudora message directly to the developer, who would then help you fix the problem. It was a really exciting time.

I mean, if all else fails, I just use the developer tools to delete the pop-ups on websites. No, it's not entirely straightforward or easy (well, it kind of is, but I rarely use HTML or CSS or even go on websites like those much anymore), but it still works and I don't have to accept something.

I do recommend the combo of Adblock Plus, uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger to everyone (at least on chrome, probably other browsers too) to block ads and tracking.

Is this why eBay continues to have really really basic google ads at the bottom of listings that nobody clicks on? Perhaps they have a deal with google so people can track them?

My tools to fight the annoyances: - uBlock with annoyances blocklists enabled, blocking most ads and trackers - Firefox to allow normal operation of ublock, since chrome started to restrict adblocker capabilities - "I don't care about cookies" extension to stop the cookie popups. They are blocked anyway. - "Facebook container" if anything slips through, it still stops facebook tracking around the web - SponsorBlock extension to skip in-video ads on youtube. I'm paying for premium, so stop showing me ads. and a few more, but these are the most important.

My general go-to method: If a site denies me clean entry for more than 10 seconds, I don't use it. The exception is YouTube, where I only F5 my way through various "Ad 1 of 2" cycles before finding some non-intrusive ad that doesn't require me to drop what I'm doing to hide it. No I don't use adblockers all that often, there are people who rely on ad revenue to fund their channels.

The danger of reader view and the rejection of advertising is that it will force content/information providers to insert advertising into what the user is attempting to view - i.e. paid product placement or articles that portray a sponsor company in a positive light.

If you didn’t know: Google also owns YouTube and just put a tax on Non-American content creators about a week ago, and also operates the biggest search engine, monitors audio and visual data from your phone, and uses all of that to sell said data to advertisers. Yes, even incognito mode searches. Not even just the sites you visit, any words or even letters you type into googles search bar will be recorded, even if you delete it, and even if you delete your search history or go on a “deep wipe” the server that google legally owns that is in a secure building somewhere in the world still has that information, and always will, unless if google wipes its own servers, which means, all data advertisers and companies have gathered on you and me up to this point, can and will be sold to other companies in hopes it will help them get you to buy their product, or at least look at it.
