The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Internet Ad Blocking Right or Wrong?

Computer, Internet

Is AdBlock for Firefox Stealing or User's Right?

 

Firefox has gained a lot of popularity among the Internet community because of many useful extensions.  One of them is called AdBlock, essential to anyone browsing the Internet today who wishes to remove all the intrusive and flashy ads.

 

Is it stealing potential revenue from a website when you block their ads?  Or is it a user right to do so?  One popular filehost site 'MediaFire' seems to disagree.  A Firefox add-on has forced this company to give Mozilla a takedown notice.

 

Obviously, this had no legal leg as the end-user has the final say in what appears on their computer.  There have been threats from some website owners to target Firefox users and block them.  However, this has yet to be followed through by anyone.
