Hello from Florida!

I am in the process of researching Ad Blocker programs. During my research I came across a website http://arstechnica.com/business/news/20 ... u-love.ars that stated that "ad blocking is devastating to the sites you love".

Has anyone else read this? Is it true? If I block all of these ads, do I impact the website?

Rick, I saw that you said you do not see ads. So I wondered what you thought.

Would love to know what to do next.

Thanks!!
Mary Ellen

They probably mean that many websites rely on revenue for hosting ads, particularly on click-throughs (the amount of times people click on ads on a website), so if you block their ads, you'll never be clicking-through, which may reduce their revenue stream.

Thanks! That is what I was wondering. I want to make sure that my blocking ads doesn't impact BYGC, Dover Cam, Littlehouse Cams and others. Would hate to take revenue away from them.

Again thanks for your help.

It doesn't impact BYGC at all. We don't have sponsored ads on our site. I don't think Dover Cam or Littlehouse Cam do either. But thanks for thinking of us!

Feel free to block away!
