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 agree, and that's bothering me more and more offline. There's no way I can adblock or unsubscribe.
