blocking ads is evil grr
HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.
@Shamar what abuse do you mean? Except for rogue CAs/nation states, and — to a lesser degree because HSTS — network operators, I'm ignorant of other abuses. Obviously I'm against those abuses I mentioned though. (Also, removed others, as a courtesy).
