Content isn't "free" when there are ads. The longer I work in advertising, the more this idea that content w/ads is "Free" bothers me. It's not free at all. You're paying for it with your time and attention to sponsored content, and how that content then drives you to take actions. It's not "free."

@KameronHurley also, in many cases, the information you're giving by letting the ad load at all, like the sites you visit and other stuff.
