what's up i always use ad blocker no way will disable it for your site
the site says to disable my ad blocker and add them to the white list
its for advertising
Rick, we're trying a new service. You do realize, when you ad block, you're taking the single sole source of revenue from the sites you visit. If everyone ad blocked, sites like HotHardware and many others would either die out or become full paywalls. Think about it. I encourage you to reconsider ad blocking for the sites you enjoy.
your site wont die i don't like looking at ad's when im trying to look at tech .. ill just not look at your site anymore no loss to me but it's a loss to you ...
@Rick, You're sorely mistaken. Plenty of sites would die of everyone ad blocked. And frankly, you're not a loss to us if you ad block either but we're hoping you'd see it a different way and actually support sites you enjoy. It makes logical sense doesn't it? Our ads are very relevant and placed well on the page so as not to obstruct content or get in the way of the experience.
Hot hardware I respect what your saying and the revenue side of what your saying, but if your one of those sites that forces people from seeing or doing anything on the site without turning off ad blocking services , that's not only a really bad look to any respectable site, but your also cutting of a potential social media revenue and publicity, and if your soul purpose is to only have people click on ads your already doing a lot wrong
Yay...more traffic enforcement signals...damn.
Some people should not participate in the stock market.
And, some people shouldn't complain when they get reminders to please help support the site they're using. Either adjust your ad-blocking software so that you don't see the message, or be a decent human being and unblock the site, if you like it. But, *don't* whine like some child who that thinks he can dictate service expectations to a site he's not supporting.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Steven FL, not at all actually. It's just an appeal message to whitelist the site in your adblock program, then you can continue on to anything you want just as always. It's a smart business practice and worth-while message to a reader.
Steve HH does not block content for ad blocking, i just tested it out and it only puts a banner on the top of the browser asking you to white-list HH. People just don't understand that nothing can truly be free in life, most sites aren't created just because, someone has to pay for it and in hope they get a return. Who do you think has to pay for the servers to host it? the staff to run it? and the writers that publish articles? And lots more. Websites are no different then a business. HH does not force ads on you, they are placed out of the way and does not make any difference if they are there or not, if you like the ad click it, if not you might not even notice it. You guys try creating a well populated website, it takes lots of work and money to keep it running. HH is free and doesn't charge a cent to use their service, this is the least you can do.
Wow, Inspector... I couldn't have said it better myself. :) Thanks!
