letting the ads flow
I'm one of those types who hates internet advertising so much that I actually have a custom HOSTS file (this one) that blocks the vast majority of ads out there.
However it's becoming increasingly apparent that certain web sites run like ass when you block the ads. Some scripting on the web site side gets broken, certain links don't work, etc.
I'm going to try something which is the complete opposite of what I normally do with my web stuff.
- I'm going to clear the HOSTS file. I can always get it back anyway, so no big deal.
- I'm going to allow all the cookies.
This is going to be an interesting experience seeing what the internet is like with nothing blocked. It may be good or it may tick me off so much that I go right back to the way I had things before.
We'll see. 🙂
