I've come across huge debates on this. Some say it allows content providers to make a living. Others say it devalues their content, and that they should sell actual services or products.

This is especially true on YouTube. I've come across money hungry YouTubers, and others that their audience would willingly donate their life to them.

AdBlock Plus is a nice add-on that disables most ads. It really makes website look much better.

Should we strive to go the route of ads, or strive for a beautiful, ad-free environment that is supported by people who enjoy the content and are willing to pay for it in the form of donations?

I'm supporting no ads, and Leo here provides my argument:

The first article reads like a capitalist's wet dream.
"Easy is the descent to Avernus, for the door to the Underworld lies upon both day and night. But to retrace your steps and return to the breezes above- that's the task, that's the toil."

While internet ads work in generating a revenue; they work best when they are non-intrusive. The only sites that can pull off intrusive ads are sites with allot of traffic, like youtube, facebook, or pornsites. When ads are intrusive people are more likely to get annoyed than intrigued. I can only think of one time I didn't get annoyed with a youtube ad, and that was because it was advertising a youtube video relevant to what I was searching for.

I hate ads, which is why I do not watch TV. However, advertising that sponsors things I love doing I consider to be a good thing. Ultimate tournaments, events, and private charity are all sponsored by companies that do it out of their own self-interest and brand identity, but help people out.
